Quote of the Day

"Though we travel the world over
To find the beautiful
We must carry it with us
Or we find it not."
                               - Ralph Emerson Waldo

Prayer of the Day

I saw this prayer on Facebook and, somehow, it resonated with me - I liked it... I really liked it. Here it is -

Read this in silence:

Thank you, Lord, for everything you've done for me. Forgive me of all of my sins. Heal me from the hurt of my past. I love You and need You. Cover me with Your precious and holy blood, my family, my friends, my life projects. Give me Your dream, Lord. Bless and protect everyone that seek You, need You and believe in You.

Give me your dream, Lord....Give me your dream - BEAUTIFUL!

This is Funny!

Dept of Jewish/Buddhist humor:

Jewish Buddhism:

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?

Drink tea and nourish life;
with the first sip, joy;
with the second sip, satisfaction;
with the third sip, peace;
with the fourth, a Danish.

Wherever you go, there you are.
Your luggage is another story.

Accept misfortune as a blessing.
Do not wish for perfect health or a life
without problems.
What would you talk about?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with
a single Oy.

There is no escaping karma.
In a previous life,
you never called,
you never wrote,
you never visited.
And whose fault was that?

Zen is not easy.
It takes effort to attain nothingness.
And then what do you have?
Bupkis.

The Tao does not speak
The Tao does not blame.
The Tao does not take sides.
The Tao has no expectations.
The Tao demands nothing of others
The Tao is not Jewish.

Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Breathe in.
Breathe out
Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will
be the least of your problems.

Let your mind be as a floating cloud.
Let your stillness be as a wooded glen
And sit up straight.
You'll never meet the Buddha with such
rounded shoulders.

Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers.
Each flower blossoms ten thousand times.
Each blossom has ten thousand petals.
You might want to see a specialist

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical
sensation is a
symptom of a terminal illness.

The Torah says,
Love your neighbor as yourself.
The Buddha says,
There is no self.

So, maybe we're off the hook.

Coincidence... Again?!

I saw this TM Breaking News, Bredesen Announcement, on my email and forwarded it to my brothers, as some of us in the family do TM. I had barely left the page when my phone rang and it was my brother, Mike, on the other line.
He says, " I'm at Barnes and Noble's."
And I said, "Ya?"
"I'm holding the book!"
"What book?"
"'The End of Alzheimer's' by Bredesen."
A book?! I thought I was just reading a news article.
"Buy the book!" Of course, timing couldn't be more perfect! How serendipitous!

How do you explain that, Coincidence - NOPE! It's more than that, it's beyond that...

Love it!
