I come to the blog humbled and touched by the many visitors and followers.... in visiting my dashboard I was touched by all the visitors even though I have been absent. ... thanks!  Yes, it has been much time since I stopped by, yet too I maintain various personal journals and writings but I find this soulful space touching.  Thank you for visiting. 

My daughter and I recently started a class bridging Buddhist meditation with Christian faith. .. I myself espouse to my Christian faith as something very powerful and the fuel of my life and love. Yet too, I am drawn by the principles of mindfulness meditation, compassion, and peace in the Buddhist tradition.  Though some would say they don't fully align, I would assert that grace, love, faith, and peace are so integral to both, and to life, love, and well being.  ... I too find that in my busy life that not only is fervent prayer with the good Lord important, yet too the mere focus on breath, being, and the moment. ...

Prayers that you all find your peace... and that you feel the compassion and love of others

Blessings

  1. Hi Kringle. I thought I'd return the favor and revisit your blog. I'm a Christian as well, but like you, don't find that to preclude finding good stuff where I can. I'm getting ready to re-read "The Way of the Peaceful Warrior," a book that stresses being in the moment in life and in training. It's Eastern influenced and reminds me of Zen readings I've enjoyed in the past.

    PS: Lovely picture. One of yours?

  3. Lovely thoughts. The principles you describe are the ones that despite faith or religion, we should all be striving for. Mindfulness and breath ... just hearing the words makes me want to slow down and - breeeeaaathe. :)

    Thank you. xoxo

  4. So glad you're back! Yay!

    I would love to hear more about this class as I too find the two to be congruent.
