Dalai Lama

Jon sent this quote to me...
This is from the Dalai Lama, about the role of meditation:


"It is easier to meditate than to actually do something for others. I feel that merely to meditate on compassion is to take the passive option. Our meditation should form the basis for action, for seizing the opportunity to do something."--His Holiness the Dalai Lama

I couldn't agree with this more. If you are still confused about what we should be doing in America, remember the faces of those who gave their lives for this wrong war and those parents and family left afterwards.

Hi Emily, this is Rhiannon! I have a new handle addy, so just click on my name and it will take you to my blog. I agree meditating is all well in fine in whatever way we chose to do it, but taking some sort of active action and to have compassion and reach out to others takes more courage and energy but lifts the spirit to transend to another level of "understanding".

I hope you will come by my blog and read my recent post "Stop The War" Blog Protest! Feel free to drop by and express your thoughts on this very important issue. I've already got quite a few people contributing and joining in with comments and my responses and hope to see you there!

Hope your doing well,

With Angel Blessings,

Rhi
