“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”

Just keep breathing in and out like this. Don't be interested in anything else. It doesn't matter even if someone is standing on their head with their ass in the air. Don't pay it any attention. Just stay with the in-breath and the out-breath. Concentrate your awareness on the breath. Just keep doing it. http://www.ajahnchah.org/book/Just_Do_It_1_2.php

Hello everyone

this poignant song describes both the city in which I reside, and how I've experienced many days in my life thus far:

Rediscovered this album after many years and this song in particular is very dharmic....

Will you lose the flowers
Hold on to the vase
Will you wipe all those teardrops
Away from your face
I can't help thinking
As I close the door
I have done all of this
Many times before

This song went through my mind earlier. There is a version on youtube with some powerful images, but some might be offensive to others. So here are the lyrics. Peace truly begins in our own heart. It is our own battleground.

Also, if you purchase books on Amazon, you can use Amazon Smile and put in Mountain Gate (In Ojo Sarco, NM) and a small % will go to the monastery.

The guy who designed the cover for "Dark Side of the Moon" and other Pink Floyd albums has just passed away ... I might go and listen to the disc in memoriam.

It makes you want what you can't have.

Not sure which I like more: the song, or the video for the song.
