Mi dharma es su dharma


I have decided that a weekly commitment is something I can manage in 2009.  Not books or pictures, though.  I don’t know that anyone but Rhi is interested in this, but I am, this year, making a concerted effort to be more spiritual and I have decided that that is what I’ll share here every week.  Of course far be it from me to be too personal, so it won’t be my experiences, rather it’ll be whatever I’m working that week, so it may be selections from the Dhammapada, from Buddhist parables, from whatever book I am reading, etc.

This isn’t intended to influence anyone in their own beliefs.  Rather a way for my community to hold me accountable for continuing to practice, and hopefully to entertain you all.  And maybe inform you, if it is something you are interested in following up on.  Buddhism is something that can be practiced in conjunction with Christian and other faiths.  It is, in it’s simplest form, just a means of achieving inner peace and having selfless compassion for your fellow humans.

And sure, if you do read these posts and are interested I will try and answer questions, or at least direct you to possible answers.  I am merely a student in this and have not at all been practicing in the way I wish for a few years. So bear with me, or learn with me.

  1. It amuses me how well you know me. You know that I will LOVE this project. I can’t wait to read your offerings.

  2. Of course I’m interested. I wasn’t among those who got to see you when you were home this last time, but I do think of you often and am reading here. 🙂 It parallels something I will be doing as well, though perhaps in not as structured a format. But I look forward to seeing what you’ll share with us.

  3. Yes, Rhi, I do know what you like. 🙂

    And, Moiraeknittoo, I only saw folks who were blood related to me when I was home, so you are part of a very large club for not getting to see me.
