Thank you, everyone! :group:

I heard in Dialysis two nurses talking about a 4 year-old boy who has been given no hope for surviving cancer after fighting it for 2 years. North Korea is loading medium range missiles. There is a new bird flu strain that has the scientific/medical team hopping. There are people hungry, being tortured, raped, and killed.
"Wishing in gladness and in safety, may all beings be at ease."

My biggest wish for myself is that "May I be filled with loving-kindness towards all beings everywhere" and I wish the same for each of you.

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.

I think of you each day, Sattva.
:anjali: :heart:

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
