@Hozan There was a great essay I found online that connected Star Wars to Shin Buddhism but after some digging I believe the website got revamped and the link is no longer active. Such a shame, it really opened my eyes to Amida Buddha...and I love anything that frames Luke as a Buddhist. It was a fun read. I will continue looking.
now I think we should stop posting unless we make a new thread...for star wars...
a bow of respect to my NB sangha for tolerating constant off-shoots in conversation
Currently boiling a pot of water for green tea. I'm not much of a morning person but I love the night. I used to have a lot of fun staying up late as a kid, feeling the quiet solitude alone in my bedroom. I'm going to try a new nightly routine of drinking tea and reading (i have too many books!) In the mornings I am usually anxious and it's hard to get out of bed. I hope going to sleep in a better mood will help as well. I am going to refrain from being on my phone once I start drinking my tea, as a rule...
Buddhism has opened my eyes to all the world's wisdom. Though I want to study everything and experience new things I believe Buddhism will always be my "home base"
Here is a poem I wrote after graduating high school
