loving-kindness-positive attitude

One translation of the Buddha teachings on loving kindness reads, in part, as follows:



"This is what should be done

By one who is skilled in goodness,

And who seeks the path of peace:

Let them be able and upright,

Straightforward and gentle in speech.

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… Continue

the wisdom of whales

Self-acceptance is inherent in all animals and can be best understood by observing nature. At Puerto Madryn in Argentina, for example, dozens of right whales come to breed in the calm waters surrounding the Valdes Peninsula. It is amazing to get close to such enormous creatures. They are the biggest animals in the world and surely among the most powerful, yet all they do is radiate love. It’s incredible. It’s all you can feel. They are pure peace, pure love, and yet they are so big. They look… Continue

music and meditation*

Music has a lot of power. It can make you laugh, it can make you cry, it can bring back memories long forgotten and it can help you create new ones. I love music and my tastes are about as eclectic as they come. Music of any type or genre can be enjoyed if it speaks to you in just the right way. My parents brought me up to give any and all music a try, if I liked it: great, if not: that's fine too. I played a few instruments as a kid, primarily the flute and piccolo and I played in a variety of… Continue

LOVE [metta]

LOVE (Metta)







Love, without desire to possess, knowing well that in the ultimate sense there is no possession and no possessor: this is the highest love.







Love, without speaking and thinking of "I," knowing well that this so-called "I" is a mere delusion.







Love, without selecting and excluding, knowing well that to do so means to create love's own contrasts: dislike, aversion and hatred.







Love, embracing all… Continue

open your heart

Research is continually showing that meditation is beneficial to our life and our health. Meditation helps us to take a distance from what is going on in our mind and our life rather than constantly being immersed and controlled by it. It helps us to be more focused and reduces stress. Opening your heart is a simple step you can take towards accepting things as they are and being more open to others and the blessings of life. This is a meditation that can be used each morning to center yourself… Continue

meditation with nature

The Seasons of the Day



Build your day around the rhythms of the day. Forget clock-time, and make time to respond to what the day presents you. The greatest symphony in the world happens as the pre-dawn light rises into day and the sun comes up to the songs of birds. Make time for it, often.



Nature's rhythms, because they are our own deepest rhythms, can be the greatest healer.



Consider this prescription for whatever ails you: Sunrise and sunset, each day, in… Continue

Slow Down Already! Quieting Our Minds, Beating Bad Habits

We live in a time of uncontested availability. Through our cell phones, laptops, and social media networks, we volunteer ourselves to friends, foes and colleagues regardless of time change or desire. It has become increasingly difficult to shut out the world and concentrate in a culture where speed and productivity are valued over mindfulness. More and more children are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder… Continue
