    Church I've gone to church my entire life.

    There are parts of church that are wonderful. Especially, the communion of people that all want to live a life of love. I think the problem with church is that there are as many people trying to live a life of right as there are people trying to love. Being right and being love...

    Being not becoming. In other words be an easy

    Turns out the first dream was a premonition of

    Star Wars day has really messed with my

    meditation exercise. We watched IV to celebrate on Sunday. Does anyone else think Jedi Knights are Buddhist Ninjas? Is it possible to be a Buddhist Ninja? Anyway, I think I have the first meditation worded so that it fits me and is meaningful and powerful to me. May I be...
