Learning the art of Maitri, making friends with myself, more lessons from pain

There’s nothing like walking to get my thoughts going, join me as I reflect on how the teachings of the Buddha shape who I am, how I react, and who I aspire to be.

It;s been three months of pain from my kidney so far, and the new normal is that there is no new normal. Today I touch up Maitri, the Buddhist concept of making friends with yourself. It’s forever work for me-and you too I suspect.

Nothing like pain to nail us to the present moment and to bring us closer to who we really are and being with what we have rather than what we desire,

I’d love to hear what invitations pain and happiness bring into your life.
always in love
