Go beyond this way and that way

to the farther shore

where the world dissolves

and everything becomes clear.

Beyond this shore and the farther shore

beyond the beyond

where there is no beginning and no end

without fear, go.

–Buddha, the Dhammpada

Eating Habits Keep it Healthy  
Wild Fact About Me Legends maybe, myths maybe, but facts?
My Philosophy There is only now. The past is the story that brought us to this moment, the future is the story we are telling in this moment. In this moment we are as free as we choose to be.
What Gives Me Hope I don't run on hope; but here's some things I like seeing. So many people turning towards spirit, so many people doing good, green things on this earth, so much love and compassion between people--the things that are not reported in the news.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Get rid of Presidents, governors, and mayors...let people live as people. Yes, I know this is my secret save the world list, get rid of big oil, declare war officially insane, give people affordable sustainable solar houses with organic gardens, public transport everywhere, fruit trees on all streets and parks with free fruit for all, declare that no community is healthy and whole if any of its members are wanting, declare that pollution is simply unacceptable on a small planet, on and on and on...
What/who changed my life and why My children, too many books on zen and spirit to tell them all, so many teachers, all of them people but not all human, what is right before me right now, this very day.
What Bugs Me  
Passions This very planet, so beautiful

  Favorites
Role Models To many to tell here too, except for rocks, trees, cactus. So much patience
