For my friend Paul (Coops)

Post by Ben » Fri Apr 15, 2016 2:49 am

I learned last night that my friend's adult daughter died from a drug overdose. She left behind two children.
The last time I had spoken to Coops he expressed his concern for his daughter who was married to an abusive partner who was also a drug addict.
If you are in the habit of sharing your merits, please remember my friend Paul and his daughter, Sarah.
with metta,

“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.

Anicca vata sankhara
Uppada vaya dhammino
Uuppajjitva nirujjhanti
Tesam vupasamo sukho

Karaniyamatthakusalena,
yantam santam padam abhisamecca;
Sakko uju ca suhuju ca,
suvaco cassa mudu anatimani.

Santussako ca subharo ca,
appakicco ca sallahukavutti;
Santindriyo ca nipako ca,
appagabbho kulesvananugiddho.

Metta to her and her children and family.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Keep your mind steady and rest within the winds of experience.
