I'm just your average being stumbling along the path of enlightenment.
Some things we may have in common:
I write poetry. I'm a Reiki Master. I have a degree in Metaphysics. I like cats more than dogs. I have various peacock decor throughout my home. My favorite color is purple. Seven is my lucky number. I'm nocturnal. Christmas is my favorite holiday but I'm not religious. I'm not into celebrities. I own more books than movies. I see people from the inside and I'd make a terrible witness at a crime scene. :-)
"To sit in judgment of those things which you perceive to be wrong or imperfect is to be one more person who is part of judgment, evil or imperfection." ~Wayne Dyer
"Wabi sabi acknowledges three things: "nothing is perfect, nothing lasts, and nothing is finished." So, at first glance, it seems to celebrate the very thing that causes suffering. Yet, Basho found that wabi sabi led to enlightenment. So what is going on here? Basho himself studied Zen for several years and traveled in disguise as a Zen priest, yet he clearly became attached to people and places, wept openly beside ancient battlegrounds and other sites of romance or valor. He suffered gladly the pains of attachment and sympathy, identified with nature and its pathos. Either he was not very disciplined in his Buddhist practice, or he understood something about attachment and loss that we could do well to learn." ~ Richard Powell
"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring." ~Marilyn Monroe
