I started practicing this buddhism in 1984 in L.A.
I have an 18 year old son who studies now in Germany and a 11 year old daughter who lives with me, We just got a baby cat, British Shorthair. I work as a writer, an artist and a teacher for environmental education.
I was in Tozan in 1988, it was so beautiful, it's really sad that Taiseki-ji got destroyed. We have the power to turn poison into medicine. We have a great mision and we first have the right and the obligation of being really HAPPY so we motivate others to embrace the Law.
Hello Marta, I do live in Palma-Portixol, a little fisher harbour in front of Palma. I'm looking forward to welcome you in Mallorca. Please contact me when you are coming, so we can arrange Daimoku, Gongyo and meetings for the time you are here. Just in case I give you my telefon no.: +34686512241, 971257901.
Have a great day, Birgitt
thank you for your comment about my art. I'm glad you like it.
If you want, we could communicate through our emails so I can send you some pictures of me and the kids, my son (18)and daughter (also 11), because with this web site I am not very familiarized and don't know how to do it.
Mu email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Which is yours?
Lots of love,
How are you doing lately ?
Very nice website ! Your art looks wonderful and colorful :) How is your boy's studies in Germany ? How is your daughter ? My youngest daughter is also 11. We had a lot of snow here in Virginia. My girls (11 & 13 ) are happy to stay home from school for a week. My son is in Coronado, CA working hard to graduate with the Navy SEALs for August.
It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.
