Welcome to wisdom scribed by Ruth Lee and shared freely here.
This was shared earlier this month and I received comments that led me to do something I have never done before…repeat a message within a few weeks. Don’t miss it this time! If you are not familiar with Ram Dass and his seminal work “Be Here Now”, know that he is an international lecturer, author, and a leading Western exponent of ancient Eastern philosophies.
During these busy times, when many people are feeling overwhelmed, it is our hope that these "media-tations" will deepen your access to a deep gratitude for the very preciousness of life. Take time out and relax and for a few minutes drift into a deep contemplation of life with Ram Dass leading your thoughts as lovely scenes move through your mind…pause and let go of whatever is bothering you and think of all the good that you have done and how much good you will do in the years to follow. All is good…you are love…
Quietly and easily slip out of where you are now and check out how it is with others who are nearby. If you never challenge yourself to meet those who live or work close to you every day, you will not be able to aspire to rise in the esteem of everyone else. Start working hard to build a platform upon which you can become the best you can possibly be now.
This meditation is dedicated to all the pets we have loved and lost. "Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened." (unknown) Photography / Video by Dianne L. Ray ...Rainbow Bridge - Poet Unknown..."Flight of the Hawk " from Music of the Great Smoky Mountains composed and performed by Gary Malkin. Filmed in Southwest Virginia 2009.
With a smile on your face and a lovely thought look at someone nearby and transmit it to them. See if you can make them smile back or drive on with a happier mind. Try it all the time and keep tabs on how you feel and why.
In January 2007 I was finally able to visit the largest Buddhist kingdom in the world, Bhutan. I took pictures and videos, but have never developed them into something to share with others…so I am pleased to present the first and only travel documentary made in Bhutan, by Bhutanese. This is just part one of the travelogue, but it covers things Kathy and I experienced and viewed while there. All is as it appears here. [youtube:=qQzuWm2POPA]
Open and smiling beguiles more women than men, but what if you can win over half the human race by doing just that? Would it not be worth your while to practice it now?
