Dharma Day Lessons

Yesterday was Dharma Day celebrating the first sermon given by The Buddha in which he revealed the "ultimate truth" and the path to enlightenment. This day is celebrated on the full moon in July and is used to give offerings, study the Dharma, and deepen practitioners┬áspirituality. I worked a double shift and had hoped to...

The BEST thing you can ever do…

Centering Thought: The best thing you can ever do is to BELIEVE in Yourself. Today I truly trust and BELIEVE in myself. Lately, I have felt others have been trying to turn me into someone I don't feel I am. I've felt I had been pretty up front with my likes and idiosyncrasies, as well... Continue Reading →

Friends Not Friends

Starting a friendship is probably one of the toughest things in the world to do. You have to learn that person's interest to see if there are enough mutual hobbies to sustain spending time and effort into building the friendship further. You have to witness their struggles to see what they are made of and... Continue Reading →

I’m NOT your Doormat

An interesting thing happened on my way to the Dharma. I know the power people put on the meaning of words( I am a writer of course).

Keep Your God-Complex to Yourself

I observe behavior to improve my understanding of people, mostly to understand motives as to assist those looking for my brand of counsel. I also use skills learned through my Buddhist practice to make adjustments... Continue Reading →

I’m sorry BUT…

I'm not one who can't admit when I'm wrong. Sometimes I need some prodding and pulling, but I find my way to the apology if only to transition to a new situation. While an apology can work wonders in healing wounds, and repairing lost connections, an apology alone tends to be ineffective if the underlying... Continue Reading →
