legend of the werewolf

Origin of the Werewolf Legend



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



During middle ages, especially from 15th to 17th century, Europe was under the dark shadow of ignorance and superstitions. Towns were underdeveloped and people lived near woods. The fear of wolves was like a nightmare. Their attacks were so frequent and atrocious in nature that people even feared to travel from one place to another. Every morning, countryside… Continue

friendship

And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship."



Your friend is your needs answered.



He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.



And he is your board and your fireside.



For you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.



When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."



And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his… Continue

compassion

Meditation on Compassion

May you be held in compassion





To cultivate compassion, let yourself sit in a centered and quiet way. In this traditional form of practice you will combine a repeated inner intention with visualization and the evocation of the feeling of compassion. As you first sit, breathe softly and feel your body, your heartbeat, the life within you. Feel how you treasure your own life, how you guard yourself in the face of your sorrows. After some time, bring… Continue

The Buddha’s Words on Lovingkindness

Humble and not conceited,

Contented and easily satisfied,

Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways,

Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,

Not proud and demanding in nature.

Let them not do the slightest thing

That the… Continue

animal wisdoms

From Anita, a 12 year old yellow lab discussing when you feel scattered or unsettled with life ...

Don’t forget the simple things. Everything will happen in its own time and place. Don’t rush, stay simple. Don’t forget your routines. Do one thing the same everyday. The same time, the same thing. That will help you get centered and grounded and feel as though you have control over at least one thing in your life.





~ From Stafford, a horse that died ...

slow dance..

SLOW DANCE



Have you ever watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.



Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done

Do you lie in your… Continue
