    Never give up @misecmisc1

    "Great Faith and Great Doubt are two ends of a spiritual walking stick. We grip one end with the grasp given to us by our Great Determination. We poke into the underbrush in the dark on our spiritual journey. This act is real spiritual practice -- gripping the Faith end and poking ahead with the Doubt end of the stick. If we have no Faith, we have no Doubt. If we have no Determination, we never pick up the stick in the first place."

    Um that recipe reminds me of the eggless vegetarian omelette I had in South India ...
    Back then ( 1981) the large railway stations in India had both vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurants, run by the railway ...I think it was at Madras railway station where I enjoyed the eggless omelette, yum ...

  • Re: Advice on discrimination at work

    @cosmicdan said:

    Does anyone has an advice on how to mindfully cope with this situation? Have you had a similar situation, and if so, how did you handle it?

    Thanks in advance

    @cosmicdan

    Welcome ....Sorry to hear about your work situation...Have you been in touch with your local "Human Rights Commission" ? Or any "local support groups" ( the "local support groups" link has links to legal services which may help with your work situation)

    Do you want to know "how to" practice "Mindfulness" in order to reduce stress ?

  • Re: meaning of life

    Thinking slightly outside the square...It would seem there are as many meanings as there is life itself ie, living things....(life for me at the moment means sitting here with a cup of green tea and typing on laptop :)

    So I guess it's back to the drawing [water] board....and perhaps chop some wood
