Daily Meditation:

“What do you mean by the true Buddha,
The true Dharma and the true Way?
Would you be good enough to explain to us?”
The Master said,
“Buddha-this is the cleanness
And purity of the mind.
The Dharma-this is the shining
Brightness of the mind.
The Way–this is the light
That is never obstructed anywhere.
The three are in fact one.
All are empty names and
Have no true reality.”
- Lin-chi (d.867)
Cleanness, purity, brightness and light. Do not hide your light under a bushel. Let it be seen by all. In shining your light others grow brighter as well. The shining of the light is contingent upon these other things it seems. When the mind is clear. Without fear, without anger, without obsession, without destructive natures the purity of mind the cleanness of thought allow for light to be reflected in all the dark corners exposing those things that hide in our darkest places.
This has been in interesting time. Learning about the self. Exposing dark places with light. Allowing a glimpse, an look, a understanding, a lesson, a resolution to occur. It is the nature to stop. To see this thing of defect and pass it by. To ignore it and hope it will go away. To paint another layer of lacquer upon it. Cover over to make it pretty again on the surface and yet it is still seething and ugly underneath only to come again in the future.
Working through resolution. Walking with this thing. Holding it. Knowing it. Letting it wither in the light and the breathe of air. Let it free of the bonds it keeps us in.

Has anyone tried the Yahoo! Pipes?
I am interested in this but it is just slightly beyond my scope of experience.
Let me know what you think.

Daily Meditation:

If I could, I'd comb the sky and collect the stars,
quickly pile them into a basket until it overflowed with silvery light.
And then I'd give the basket to you, because all things precious and beautiful should be yours today. - Unknown
Not just today but everyday. This is most kind. I wish I could give the gift of light. I think I am learning to nurture the light within. To bring out my light and let others see it. This way too I may be able to help others see their light.
Coming to know the love and light is difficult. I really think it requires the removal of the self. Getting rid of the ego again so we can help others. Help others to achieve what it is they are to become fully. To become the whole me once again.

Daily Meditation

Until a radical change takes place and we wipe out all nationalities, all ideologies, all religious divisions, and establish a global relationship - psychologically first, inwardly before organizing the outer - we shall go on with wars. - J. Krishnamurti
A universal relationship. We are seperate. We are alone and one. We are one together. That thought of the butterfly effecting change around the world.
Got to go...More to come? tomorrow at least...

Daily Meditation:

Living should be perpetual and universal benediction. - Why Lazurus Laughed by Wei Wu Wei
Getting clarification on benediction. Internet down. type in Define: benediction at google.
Diction - to speak with clarity. Bene - ? maybe humble?
To speak humbly with god.
I think that is the serenity prayer. God, Grant me the Serenity, to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
The short version - F*ck it.
