    Ordinary Miracle

    Hi,

    A simple song I heard today while watching a pretty good version of Charlotte's Web with Leon. Silly, simple, lovely story ... silly, simple, lovely song ... but a silly, simple, lovely theme around this Sangha, so sharing it with all the other folks in the Ordinary Miracle ...

    Oh, he has the Flu today and a pretty good fever of about 103f (39.6c), so we are keeping him comfortable.

    Thanks for asking, Shokai. Gassho, J

    Thanks JUndo,

    It made me smile too, wonderful song.

    Everyday when I get up I see the same poem of the Daila Lama, which hangs in my dressing room :

    A Precious Human Life:
    Every day, think as you wake up, Today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use All my energies to develop myself, To expand my heart out to others, To achieve enlightenment for The benefit of all beings, I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry, Or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others As much as I can

    It is inspiring and sometimes difficult, an ordinary miracle
