A cup of tea

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Nan-in, a Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912), received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.

Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor’s cup full, and then kept on pouring.

The professor watched the overflow until he no longer could restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!”

“Like this cup,” Nan-in said, […]

Wisdom is within

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Wow! What a powerful and meaningful line. If I might paraphrase, look within yourself for the answers to all the big questions that life presents.

I was a very late adopter of this concept. A few years from the big 3-0, living in cold, beautiful Wisconsin, in an arranged marriage to a wonderful man whose steadiness […]

A Zen Tale: Muddy Road

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Tanzan and Ekido were once travelling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was still falling.Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.

“Come on, girl,” said Tanzan at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.

Ekido did not […]

Impermanence

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Rejoice in this moment now. Feel the ground against your feet, feel the air in your lungs, feel your body as it pulsates life. Observe what comes and goes around you. The past is gone and the future is but a cloud of desires. Death is the shadow of life. All we have is this […]

Journeying through difficult times

By |January 22nd, 2016|

I used to go through life’s invariable difficult moments with clenched teeth,  hoping it would pass, trying desperately to distract myself from the pain when possible. Purely reacting. And repeating. Like a broken record.

After several decades of this (yes, decades), I finally noticed something.I could not tolerate feeling sad/ lonely/ scared. So,I ran away from or […]

Powerful change starts form within

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Change is universal. No one is always on the up swing or the down turn of the giant wheel called life, you always experience the other part of the ride sooner or later. Yet, we all get so attached to the version of ourselves and our circumstances during one phase, and we resist, kicking and screaming, as […]

Friendship

By |January 22nd, 2016|

My two dearest friends live in India and Australia. Not easy to drop by and spend time with each other when one of us is having a bad day.Yet, they have been my ‘guardian angels from afar’ for almost two decades now. How does this work? It works because what they represent, is bigger than […]

Ordinary heroes

By |January 22nd, 2016|

We live in a world where money is equated with greatness. We are taught to respect people who are big,fast and rich. But,if we stop and think of the people who have truly influenced us most, we would probably pick ordinary people. In my case, it was a science teacher who believed in me before […]

Non judgement

By |January 22nd, 2016|

I once read a true story submitted to Reader’s Digest. A father and his three children get on a bus in central London.The father is lost in his own thoughts and the kids, being unsupervised, are loud and disruptive to the other passengers. Finally, a lady in a nearby seat leans over to the father […]

Midfulness

By |January 22nd, 2016|

Take a moment to read these words slowly, carefully. Search your heart, search your past, search your decisions, your relationships, your desires.

Life is a great equalizer. No one, I repeat NOONE,  has it all good or all bad. Yep, even the rich celebrities with their perfect looking kids and flashing white smiles, they are wanting […]
