  • Solve everything by being smarter

    I’m formally taking refuge and the precepts with one of China’s most prominent Pure Land masters tomorrow afternoon at 5pm.

    Then five days at the monastery to start the new year. Ajahn Brahm will be staying there at the same time which is pretty cool.

    I think 2021 will be a good year......blessings to all 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️

    I don’t believe in resolutions. They are made each year and most are broken again in a fairly short time, they just seem don’t seem to matter very much.

    But it wouldn’t be the same without a rant from @lobster once in a while, so I hope he will gently keep ranting.

    In my experience, resolutions only hold up for a few days before they become moot or inappropriate to inner or outer circumstances. Hence daily or weekly resolutions seem to be a good deal more useful. The current is always changing, the tide flows in and out, and swimming with it, not against it, often seems the best course to follow.

    That's so awesome @Bunks - I'd love to formally take vows myself. That's something I will work towards in 2021 and hopefully commit to for 2022 :)

    Now it is New Years Eve and my daily practice evolves as I take on the Yoke (Yoga). Yep I started before the official 'now is precept resolution discipline day' ...

    • First day - 20 mins Yoga
    • Day 2 - 30 mins Yoga from Youtube
    • third day - walking meditation ... went for long mindful walk in the unreal real world
    • Day 4 - 20 mins combined yoga and Chi Kung
    • Day 5 - New Year Eve, planning to do Yoda Yoga ... The Force is with me
