At those times, I turn to a Mala, put a sleeping mask on, and begin to recite mantras, which concentrate the Mind wonderfully... Then I sleep.
Ditto. The amount of times I've recited the Medicine Buddha mantra over the past 7 d…
I first learnt about Buddhism from my mother. She studied philosophy at University as part of her Egyptology degree. Then we studied Buddhism at school in Year 11 in our GRE (General Religious Studies) classes. After I finished high school, I sta…
I think one of the first times I read about Buddhism was after hearing italian footballer, Roberto Baggio was a Buddhist. This would have been very early in the 1990s...
Ah the divine pony…
Thanks for posting this @Kerome . My cousin, to whom I am extremely close, has been diagnosed with carcinoma. He is starting chemo on Tuesday and will be in the same hospital I will be in for my operation. He too is a Buddhist, and has been for abou…
I think you’ll find very few atheists or agnostics try to make a claim on you, as opposed to some sects like the Jehovah’s Witnesses who seem to enjoy going door to door.
I've had my fair share of angry neo-atheists approach…
For a long time it has been a great trick of the Christians to switch the burden of proof, to ask people to have faith and to ask non-believers to supply proof that it wasn’t so, when in fact the burden of proof is the other way…
I regularly take Facebook and social media apps off my phone for "sabbaticals" so I can increase my consistency in practice. I still check social media at specific times of the day, but limit it.
For those of you who are not affected by temptati…
Honestly, I don't think the Buddha really said it either.
I don't see why it's an issue if he did. He was human after all. Maybe he got shirty that someone questioned his teaching. Plenty of teachers get irritated by that.
But it is…
Or as is the Rede in Wicca (in a nutshell) "An it harm none, do what thou whilt"
However...... whilst I don't particularly care how loosely one chooses to adhere to or accept the precepts, they are what they are, own it if you don't follow or adh…
It's interesting that the last 3 world cup winners have been knocked out in the group stage at the following world cup.
I think it's great. I think we'll have an exciting comp for a change
I was fine with this story @Carameltail right up to 'she was your karma' - this is one concept I have a lot of trouble with! I find it too much like the kind of th…
The Aussies are on tonight (our time).
We need to beat Peru and rely on France to beat Denmark. The odds are against us I think!
Maybe, maybe not. Although I'm pretty confident Denmark will win. Peru have been pretty…
Fret, stop retrace my steps, give up.
Rinse and repeat till I get too stressed and give up completely. Then it just "clicks" back into place. Now though, I'm trying to remain mindful of that point of fretting and reminding myself it's pointless a…
To quote my rabbi - Just do good
To quote HHDL - My religion is simple, my religion is kindness
To quote me - I'm doing my best to be a good person who is mindful of every action and reaction and trying not to fk it up
They just want their petty revenge, but at the cost of losing everything.
Truth. And that is how it always begins
I was so relieved to hear on the radio that Trump has done a 180 on the bill about separating kids from …
I understand what you're saying @Kundo but at the end of the day the correct decision was made. It was a penalty.
Well I disagree because Risdon actually kicked the ball and Griezemenn took a dive fell afterwards.
Yeah. Did you not know Maurice Chevalier is on the bench as a sub....?
France went down so much I thought the game was being played in a brothel.
Ok bitchiness aside, that VAR is a total farce. The ref's backflip on th…
I'm going for Australia and when/if we get knocked out, Denmark.
I only watch until the first fake injury.
Usually about 5 minutes in.
I hear Italy will be giving lessons now they have all that free time on their…
Coolest moonboot! found your post very inspiring @Kundo - like @federica I'm awaiting medical tinkering at present. Really not good at hospitals! Good outcomes to all ❤
Thank you @kando 🙏🙏
