I hope that by reading this series of posts, you get to know me a little and perhaps get some excitement about your own meditative path or start one if you haven’t. I hope to show you that meditation is not a straight path. It travels like water. Sometimes, it winds and wanders like a slow river in a flatland; other times, it rushes through a mountain drop teeming with tree trunks and boulders. Rarely is it a straight shot like a waterfall. But one way or another, it all flows to the vast ocean and the limitless horizon where liberation awaits. Read more

Celebrating the Life of Two Bodhisattvas What do Buddhists do during Christmas? They celebrate! Yes, they do.  I am a Buddhist, and I certainly do. And I know many other Buddhists who do as well.

Who Can Benefit From a Meditation Practice? Everyone. Unfortunately, many people have not been exposed to meditation in a way that fits their viewpoint. Many have set out on the journey and turned back. I understand why. It makes sense. Why would anyone eagerly stick with something that tends to show them more problems than solutions initially? And getting an accurate, real-life result might only arrive after many attempts. Months could go by before any progress is evident. Digging into... Read more

Confused About the Self, My Lama Showed Me What I Wasn’t  Image by Mohamed Hassan/Pixabay The Question Have you spilled buckets of time wandering the halls of the tumbleweed hotel of your mind pondering your existence, trying to figure out what you should be, who you should be, who or what your best self is? I imagine you have only because I have. And so far, life’s evidence continuously shows me that many of us face that same vague sense... Read more
