    Had a wonderful day at Chithurst monastery on Sunday and joined in with the fund raising celebrations. I try and go every year. There was a period when i felt real contentment and peace as we all walked around the monks holding our flower in a ceremony. It made me realise that i am making some progress on the path and not to doubt so much. Namo Amida Bu

    Took one of the cats to the vets today to have his anual vacs. Zippy is a tricky one and cryed a lot on the way. I chanted Kuan Shi Yin to him and he seemed to relax and settle in his box. Probably settled me too! Namo Amida Bu

    Just got back from a lovely trip to Weymouth. Its definitely warmer down that neck of the woods. Felt the cold easterly wind when i got back to the Kent coast. I use to live in Weymouth for many years and never noticed it then. I feel im tuning in to nature more these days and becoming more aware. Did lots of walking and really enyoy it. Now im…[Read more]

    I caught up with a couple of the teachings on face book. Really enjoyed them Satya. Just waiting, being patient and being drenched in Amida’s light particularly struck a chord. With gratitude. Namo Amida Bu

    It started out as a beautiful sunny day here in Kent and has now turned to fairly heavy rain. Personally i dont mind either. The warmth of the sun this morning to the very peaceful, relaxing sound of the rain now falling. Namo Amida Bu

    I think being a vege/ vegan is a very kind thing one can do. I dont think for a moment that the Buddha would support intense factory farming that goes on in our so called modern times. That being said i was bought up in a hotel restaurant and meat was always on the menu. Never planned to be a vegan it just happened naturally along with giving up…[Read more]

    I really enjoyed reading your thread Satya. I seem to have the hung over feeling today that you talked about . Its difficult to manage but i know it will pass. Im glad i am able to rest today as when these feelings arise its good to conserve energy otherwise can become more stressful. Put my feet up with cats and heating today i think. Namo Amida Bu

    Ive just had 12 days off A/L. It was all very mixed really. Spent quite a lot of time alone and some time with others. Being alone i really got to notice the changing impermanent mind states. Ranging from contentment to boredom to quite low at times. Being lost in distractions covers these up. I went to a Triratna group in Canterbury last week…[Read more]

    Hi everyone. I finally joined the Face Book page so i can join with the Thursday evening live practice with Satya. It felt very special and bought peace. Even my cats seemed chilled and all 3 were present which was nice for them. I will be able to join this Thursdays practice as not working. So will look forward to that. Namo Amida Bu

    I took 2 lovely little Dogs out for a walk yesterday. Itwas a beautiful spring day and the Park i took them to had such a nice energy. When i returned i felt very grateful for the peaceful mind that simple little exercise generated. I wrote it down in my gratitude note book. This helps seems to help dispel the negative energies that arise. Namo Amida Bu
