The Dhamma Brothers

Wow! The 2008 documentary “The Dhamma Brothers” on the effects of Buddhist meditation for prison inmates was fascinating and so positive!

I definitely recommend giving it a watch.


Listening to Feelings as well as Words

Marshall Rosenberg’s nonviolent approach to conflict is absolutely spot on!



Time is the most precious thing you will ever have. The opportunities to spend it perfectly are finite.

Distance is a possibility, illness is eventually probable and death is a certainty for us all.

If you’re holding someone’s hand right now, you’re probably spending your time well.


In Ruff of Your Opinions Clothed

One last thought for the day, for those in power in Australia who still think it’s okay to imprison refugees and people desperate for help in prisons below the decks aboard war ships for political gain:

From the play “Sir Thomas More”…

Imagine that you see the wretched strangers,
Their babies at their backs and their poor luggage,
Plodding to th’ ports and costs for transportation,
And that you sit as kings in your desires,
Authority quite silent by your brawl,
And you in ruff of your opinions clothed;
What had you got? I’ll tell you: you had taught
How insolence and strong hand should prevail,
How order should be quelled; and by this pattern
Not one of you should live an aged man,
For other ruffians, as their fancies wrought,
With self same hand, self reasons, and self right,
Would shark on you, and men like ravenous fishes
Would feed on one another.


Best episode of the Keiser Report!

Haha this was a great episode of RT’s “Keiser Report” (Episode 665)… Lot’s of laughs with Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin as guests and some really important points being made as well!
