Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays

Post by Dan74 » Sun Dec 24, 2017 9:36 am

Hello Folks,

Wishing you all joy in being with your families, friends, loved ones and for those who are alone, don't hold back, reach out and you will be surprised at the good will out there (and here).

Whether celebrating the birth of Jesus, Buddha or any of the great men and women, famous and whose names are lost in time, but who brought kindness and wisdom into the world, it's good to pause, smile and let the heart fill up with the light that they've shared with us. I hope we all do that and reflect on our good fortune to know the Dharma and all other gifts given to us by these people and allow a sense of gratitude to fill us.

Thank you all for signing up and hope you feel what a great potential this place has. Looking forward to seeing your contributions!!!

The Birth of the Christ and the Buddha celebrate the birth of being in each moment. Christianity sometimes calls it birth, death and resurrection (in each moment)... Buddhism simply says... impermanence.

on a zen note.....

Zen for the Holidays


Snowball

 I made myself a snowball
 As perfect as could be.
 I thought I'd keep it as a pet
 And let it sleep with me.
 I made it some pajamas
 And a pillow for its head.
 Then last night it ran away,
 But first it wet the bed.
