Metta request

Post by Ngawang Drolma. » Tue Mar 10, 2009 3:47 am

Hi all :namaste:

I'm going to the hospital right now-I'm pretty nervous. I don't like hospitals and I don't want to be admitted but I think something is rupturing in my body. So much pain.

Please send metta if you could; it can make a difference.

Thank you!

All the best to you, hang in there.

May you be free from pain and be steady in good health

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Take care Drolma
you're in my thoughts

“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
