    Lytton, Canada

    I am sending Metta to Rev Aurelian Giles OBC and all the people of Lytton, Canada. In Summer they had wildfires. Now the trans Canada highway has been broken by flooding. They are pretty much cut off now.

    May they be free of suffering; may they feel safe and still.

    May they be free of enmity; may they be loving, grateful and kind.
    May they be healthy and at ease in all their ills.
    May they be at peace, embracing all conditions of life.

    Metta to all,

    Coming back to this thread after a period of absence the care of this community stands out and the fact that Zen doesn't
    magically protect us from pain and loss but gives us the grounding to walk this path of life with all its joy and sadness with
    a level of equanimity.

    I would like to request metta again. I’m not feeling the best right now. I am still recovering from surgery. Okay I sometimes overdo it and try to be like others. Now and the rest of my day, several weeks I am going to rest.

    Do not try to be like others. Your strength is an inspiration, anything else would be mediocrity by comparison. Rest instead and continue to inspire.

    Much metta, Tai Shi. It sounds like you might have overdone it so rest is a good thing. When recovering from surgery it can be hard to get the balance right between rest and wanting to be a little more active.

    They do indeed. Emily is in a medically induced coma and they're having trouble bringing her off the meds for that due to seizures. This is not surprising as I think she was medically dead for a bit too long Sunday morning. Mike, her guy, found her with no pulse and did cpr until the emts came, only 8 (!!) minutes later. We won't know what we've got, say the doctors, for perhaps another week.

    We have an enormous network for this sort of thing, extended family, friends, Friends Meeting, and Bird Haven Sangha. One must get used to being on the receiving end for once. For example, Mike's brother has flown in from Philadelphia to support him in this time. Many bows.
