For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
-Matthew 6:21 was like any other seaman's chest on the outside, the initial "B" burned on top of it with a hot iron and the corners somewhat smashed and broken as by long, rough usage...
...the miscellany began - a quadrant, a tin canikin, several sticks of tobacco, two brace of very handsome pistols, a piece of bar silver, an old Spanish watch, and some trinkets of little value and mostly of foreign make, a pair of compasses mounted with brass, and five or six West Indian shells.  I have often wondered why he should have carried about these shells with him in his wandering, guilty and hunted life...

Philosophy among friends

by 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.
