Words of Wisdom-An Idea Bomb



The following comes from Comic Book Magician Grant Morrison:



"What we need now is a Don Juan role model, a shamanic soldier priest who can cope with what's going on, to deal with the type of energies we're up against in the jungles of our democractic cultures, where the new word for demon is 'corporation', where mind-devouring glamors are used in advertising, where sigils become logos and warlocks are called spin doctors. Because you can't go into this like a… Continue

Noosphere Noon

Current mood: groggy

Category: Religion and Philosophy



I remember it was sometime in 1999 C. E. I was taking classes at the local community college-it was afternoon-I was at the library. Instead of doing whatever I was suppose to be doing-I ended up just looking for odd books & copying strange or meaningful quotes. I didn't have Internet access back then-or if I did it was limited & back then the library really was the place to go for information-anyways here are some of… Continue

Contemplation for today...

From Shin Yatomi's article "An Illusion of Independence," apparently originally published in the World Tribune 10-3-03 (before my time), I found it in the book "Buddhism in a New Light." I am tempted to post the whole article...then I suppose that's not so much blogging as it is...plagiarism...ahem.

"Unlike medieval villagers who knew intimately where their bread and eggs came from, we never see those who make our lives possible, and we rarely think of them. Modern technology and the…

I WOULD LIKE TO SPEND MY LIFE COLLECTING SUNSETS

I would like to spend my life collecting sunsets.

Brilliant memories of red , orange , blue and gold.

My life would then become a tapestry filled with vibrant threads ,woven in hues of indigo and violet. And as I age…

More quotes in my head...

Not from a Nichiren Buddhist but good stuff...

"Looking for alternatives--better sights than we see, better sounds than we hear, a better mind than we have--keeps us from realizing that we could stand with pride in the middle of our life and realize it's a sacred mandala."--Pema Chodron



"Compassion isn't some kind of self-improvement project or ideal that we're trying to live up to. Having compassion starts and ends with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of…

My thoughts on the super fairy... ;-) I mean superferry :-(





Shame on Linda Lingle!





Wasting the taxpayers money, right now it's cheaper to fly.

Maybe she didn't waste the money but it could have been spent

on much better things, then a boat the locals can't afford.

You know how much a round trip ticket cost on the superferry?

Somewhere upwards of $500... but I guess that's the price of

luxury. So you can drive your own car on the islands.

I can understand if it was…

Slow Gongyo?! What do you think??

What you think...

I guess it's all about personal preference, but I think, Gongyo should be

done at a slow and steady pace. Not like achingly slow..., but at a slow

enough pace so that you have to pronounce every single syllable of Gongyo!

I mean were in church because we want to be together and chant together

but let's do it at a pace that we can all follow beginners and all!

I know I always feel better going slower and thinking of happy thoughts,

things I…

Some quotes I'm contemplating...

"Buddhism teaches that the mind encompasses the entire universe. When we change our innermost state of mind, our whole being changes, and this affects the world in which we live. This is the teaching of the oneness of life and its environment, and the principle of a single life-moment possessing three thousand realms… Everything starts with a strong determination." ---Daisaku Ikeda

"'Nonviolence' does not merely mean to refrain from violence.…

The Zealot's Gratitude

As a part of my Spiritual work I am performing Gratitude

twice daily-that is you list five things that you are grateful

for-& give thanks. Yes-this may sound a bit Hippy-Drippy-or New

Agey[eeek!!!] But this really does aid in tempering the Ego-which can

get out of hand in most Spiritual work.



So here is my Gratitude List:



!. I am thankful & grateful to the Mystic Law for this experience of Awakening &…

From Nov 4, 07 until Now

Sunday, November 04, 2007

I had been studying for 3 months on the SGI-USA website and began chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo the same day I began my studies. I began receiving benefits and the inner strength that had been in me all this time but was locked away surfaced and I had the strength to stand up for myself against an abusive husband.

This was a very emotional day for me because it was the day…
