Thumbs up thank you!

Thank you for sharing that beautiful Berry poem, Stephanie, and I wholeheartedly agree: Poetry is a marvelous way to ease into meditation ... I go through phases where I'm faithful to contemplating a Biblical passage for a while .... and then I just have to switch back to poetry - especially nature poetry - for a few weeks.

I have also been remiss in not commenting on your post about the Tonglen method. I first started doing that years ago - Pema Chodron is such a wonderful teacher - and for whatever reason .... stopped. Thank you for reminding me to start it up again. It is an extremely valuable technique for extending compassion to others. Thank you again for bringing it up .... I will get back into my practice of it now!

Namaste,

Lura
