Starting on the Spiritual Path Right Here

Awakening the Buddha within, p.54
"Your life is your path. Your disappointments are part of your path; your joys are your path; your dry cleaning, and your dry cleaner are on your path; ditto your credit card payments. It's not helpful to wait until you have more time for meditation or contemplation, because it may never happen."

Crazy wisdom

Where is my anger?

I used to get angry for no reasons when I got up in the morning, even when I was woken by my lovely husband with love. But where is my anger now? It has been quite a few days that I wake up without any anger. Does this mean that I manage to quieten my mind, so my egos cannot manipulate me when I sleep?

Awakening The Buddha Within

This book is very useful to me for my practices.
"Enlightenment is a mysterious process, not unlike God, Truth, or love. No one definition is large enough to encompass it. Each experience is unique - as we are each unique. Enlightenment - whether you call it spiritual awakening, liberation, illumination, or satori - means profound inner transformation and self-realization. " (p. 16)

A dream behind a dream

This is to relate a dream behind a dream that I had the other night. I can't actually remember the content of the "cover" dream any more, but the other morning, I started to recall a dream I'd had the previous night, when the memory of another dream behind that dream just blew the contents of the cover dream right out of my head. But first I need to digress a little.
