When mortals are alive............
26 Jan 2016

"When mortals are alive they worry about death.
When they're full, they worry about hunger.
Theirs is the Great Uncertainty.
But sages don't consider the past.
And don't worry about the future.
Nor do they cling to the present.
And from moment to moment
They follow the Way."


Hard Experiences
18 Jan 2016

This quote is something to remember when we feel all in our world is unravelling or is just too hard. 

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards." Vernon Sanders Law

When life throws the unthinkable at us, it helps not at all to throw our hands up and say "I can't cope".  We HAVE to cope or we sink.  All of us are stronger than we think. We have resources of strength inside us together with a strong survival instinct.  But how do we find these miraculous strengths?  Are they there just because we are told they are? The answer to that is,"No".  These resources are available to us because we have dug deep to find them and we can strengthen them even further through the practice of Silent Meditation.  Don't give up, ever!  We are privileged enough to have the tools with which to survive any trauma that decides to come our way.  So let's use them, not waste them!

There is always a lesson to be learned, no matter how hard or awful or horrendous or unbearable the experience we go through.  And the lesson is ALWAYS, without fail, worth learning.
