I guess finally the ultimate hero for me is Jesus for living an alternate way of love (which casts out fear) in a very human way. I don’t know enough about Buddha to cite him as a hero, but I suspect he might be.
I think it’s to be in it from the very beginning and to continue to do s, no matter what it is..
First by recognizing it. Then I think by allowing it to live and be exactly who it is. My cat her “catness,,” my neighbor her difference or similarity to me. Live and let live.
So beautiful, and the blessings were a little surprising (imprecision, humility, departures.)
Boy, I need this today. I used to feel joy more than I do now. I miss it. Doing some meditative readings to restore it.
…The world may not be happy; but I can be.
Wow, thanks Brother D. I learned something today!
Wow, I love that they came back! And you were there!
So happy to see this tribute to Brother David. I hope someday to visit the collection at Amherst.
Enjoyed the writing; but to tell you the truth, would have liked more talk from The Man Himself!
Thank you Brother David – your wisdom, your humor, your practicality, your scholarship. You started me on my spiritual journey with “Gratefulness: The Heart of Prayer” in the mid-80s. It continues to this day thanks to your good work!
Wow, Kevin, what a nice piece–words & pix. I am one of 8 sisters so I know whereof I speak! 🙂
Thanks so much for this.
Thanks so much, Mica!!
