LOVE This Quote from Karmapa on Relationships

 

While prepping the syllabus for my  fall online course via Interdependence Project, The Journey of Relationships, I came across this quote from the Karmapa (head of a major Tibetan Buddhist lineage) on his Facebook page about taking responsibility for our part in relationships:

Lessons in Mindful Parenting from George Costanza

My daughter screams as she sits atop the frog and directs the spray from the outdoor fountain

I'm an Ego Maniac

“Only a person who is congenitally self-centered has the effrontery and the stamina to write essays.” - E.B. White

Dharma Connect: This Mortal Kangaroo gets Tricky How High

I find a cherished mix from '07 & awaken from a full nights rest only to realize while stirring some eggs that I have a teacup of coffee waiting to be sipped. I choose to take my vitamins at a later time & simply make my way to the lighter end of the living room by making my prime vitamin an exercise in Mindfulness with all love & zip regrets, honoring the process...like a tulip.

In June I participated in the Tutu Global Forgiveness Challenge in an effort to revitalize my practice. The Forgiveness Challenge is a 30-day interactive program that integrates videos, recordings, thought exercises, meditations and a personal diary exploring daily themes on forgiveness.

Sometimes the difference between me and the moment is an untimely pee.

In life lots of things get in the way of living in the moment: that untimely pee, train traffic, your boss! What might it mean to live in the moment anyway? Life is not a movie chugging along frame by frame; a sequence of discrete “nows” over and over again ad nauseam. Rather reality is something way more mysterious and beautiful.
