Odds and Ends ~ 14


Traditional Buddhist Blessing and Healing Chant, stolen from Chancy:

"Just as the soft rains fill the streams,pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans, so may the power of every moment of your goodness flow forth to awaken and heal all beings--those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

By the power of every moment of your goodness, may your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled as completely shining as the bright full moon, as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

By the power of every moment of your goodness, may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone. May no obstacle come across your way. May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.For all in whose heart dwells respect, who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way, may your life prosper in the four blessings of old age, beauty, happiness and strength."

I love the healing chant... it almost sounds more Taoist in tone than Buddhist. Very serene and peaceful regardless.

And that comic had to have been written by someone who reads and/or writes blogs. :)

Its scary to me that people will vote for looks or charisma and not whether a person is qualified.

The healing chant came on a good day for me to read/hear it. Thank you. I'm keeping it to chant myself.

What we need is holistic government. As opposed to a**holistic government.

Sorry. That's just the way I feel about it~,:^)
