I am going through another personal transformation stage. My ‘rage against the dying of the light’ has manifested itself lately in enrolling myself into a day of meditation at the London Buddhist Centre and in getting tickets to Dalai Lama’s talk when he visits London in September (yay!). I hope to quiet my mind which has been going 100mph lately, restore the balance and inner peace…
I am leaving you with 3 things: the ‘awaken to the wonders of existence through absolute unmixed attention’ video from Jason Silva (watch it like a prayer or meditation), present moment reminder from Eckhart Tolle – everything passes.. and this beautiful poem from the London Buddhist Centre which captures so well my recent state of mind and soul:
THE solemn light behind the barns,
The rising moon, the cricket’s call,
The August night, and you and I—
What is the meaning of it all!
