Philosophy among friendsby Lisal Kayati Roberts on 05/27/10
"Usually we think that brave people have no fear. The truth is that they are intimate with fear." -Pema Chodron, from Offerings, Buddhist wisdom for everyday life by Danielle and Olivier Follmi
This is the entry for today's date. Somehow, each day, this gem of a book seems to have the perfect nugget of truth for me, day after day, year after year.
This simple, but profoundly wise collection of spiritual wisdom helps to keep me balanced and focused when the world seems to be spinning out of control. Each meditational message is accompanied by a soothing, often colorfully thought-provoking snapshot of life by the official photographers of the Dalai Lama.
This treasure was an unexpected gift from my good friends Joan and CO. Thanks guys. Peace.
