Wow, it’s almost the end…

Ok, one way to make up for lost blogging days….post your “drafts.”
Yeah, I think I’ve posted four or five blogs left on or is it “in” “draft” status. Of course, I believe that most of the were combined in another blog, but as I said in one, “oh well.”

I’m just pleased “TO BE.”.

I really had a path to follow.  Unfortunately, I was distracted by something bright and shiny – and  POOF, gone…

A lot has been happening, but nothing has happened..if that makes any sense.

I’ve had to put my gym activities on the back burner for now.  A few weeks ago…well needless to say, I fall down and go boom.  Can’t put my full weight on my wrist, so that means No pull-ups, push-ups, lifting, etc… you know all the good stuff.  I have been able to get a nice number of “solid” sit ups and “perfecting” my squat.  I am learning to “trust my ass.”  But until I can give it 110%..

NBC has cancelled OUTSOURCED.  I am really bummed! I really liked that show – from day ONE and THAT is good – GREAT.  It usually takes me a season to really LIKE a show….  Well, I still have Modern Family, Cougar Town, Community and Law and Order: Criminal Intent (since the originals are back)

So, whilst chatting with a buddy on FB.  I decided to look at my current reading list.

This is a list of books I am currently reading and a few that I will add in anticipation for the third (trade addition) in June.

I will read something from each of these books everyday.

Well, here you are, what I am reading NOW…

SIDEBAR: Just how are the “auto tags” generated?  I mean ReAlLy!  🙂


If you wish to move in the One Way do not dislike even the world of senses and ideas. Indeed, to accept them fully is identical with true Enlightenment. The wise man strives to no goals but the foolish man fetters himself. There is one Dharma*, not many; distinctions arise from the clinging needs of the ignorant. To seek Mind with the [discriminating] mind is the greatest of all mistakes.

– Seng-tsan, “Verses on the Faith Mind”


* Dharma in the Buddhist scriptures has a variety of meanings, including “phenomenon”, and “nature” or “characteristic”.

Dharma also means ‘mental contents’, and is paired with citta, which means heart/mind. In major sutras (for example, the Mahasatipatthana sutra), the dharma/citta pairing is paralleled with the pairing of kaya(body) and vedana (feelings or sensations, that which arise within the body but experienced through the mind).

Dharma means the source of things and Truth.

Dharma is also used to refer to the teachings of the Buddha, not in the context of the words of one man, even an enlightened man, but as a reflection of natural law which was re-discovered by this man and shared with the world. A person who lives their life with an understanding of this natural law, is a “dhammic” person, which is often translated as “righteous”.

The Buddha would teach the Four Noble Truths, the Noble Eightfold Path, the Three Marks of Existence, and other guidelines in order to achieve the freedom and liberation from suffering.

Everything is based


Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow you, as the wheels of the oxcart follow the footsteps of the ox. Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a pure mind, happiness will follow you, as a shadow clings to a form.
