Today's Meditation

Have I posted this one before? I don't think so, but if I have, it bears repeating.

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. ~ Buddha

Today's Meditation

Love is patient.

(Or, the way I see it - “to love is to be patient”.)

Ah, but Mr O’Rourke didn’t know my kid. You see, in our house there is a well-balanced system of “I’ll load, you un-load” that a) keeps me sane and b) lets the boy earn his keep.

It’s not without its faults (90% of the items make it back to their correct spots and don’t make me mention the state of the Tupperware drawer) but, hey, it beats having to do it myself.

So, with Mother’s Day two short sleeps away, I would like to give a quick shout-out to the mascot; I wouldn’t be a mother without him, after all!

Today's Meditation

Let your love flow outward through the universe, to its height, its depth, its broad extent; a limitless love, without hatred or enmity. ~ Sutta Nipata

I think everything that I know about love, I have learned in the last 6 weeks. It all comes down to this: in the presence of real love, nothing is insurmountable or impossible to overcome. Give as much as you expect to get back and you'll have your bases covered.

Today's Meditation

The light at the end of the tunnel will continue to grow brighter as long as you stay on track.

Good lord, I hope so.
