Thread: Help for my work colleagues

  1. #1

    Help for my work colleagues

    Dear all,

    Apologies if this is not kosher, but one of the EMTs on my team has been informed his wife is terminally ill. We are trying to raise some money to help support them during her treatment. 2 of my colleagues will be shaving their heads, and I have offered to do the same.

    Any help appreciated,

    Metta,
    Simon.
    Ask not what the Sangha can do for you, but what you can do for your Sangha.

    I'll put her on my Metta list. Do let us know of any changes.

    Let us offer Metta and sit for his wife and this family. Sometimes the healers are the ones in need of healing.

    Any financial assistance must be up to the individual, of course. I do donate to a cancer research charity each year, and it has touched my family too.

    Gassho, J

    These are very difficult moments, sitting and sending much metta.

    May we be free of suffering; may we feel safe and still.
    May we be free of enmity; may we be loving, grateful and kind.
    May we be healthy and at ease in all our ills.
    May we be at peace, embracing all conditions of life

    That is great to hear the fundraiser has done better than expected. When it comes down to it, people are very kind and generous.

    I hope the treatment will help her, Simon.

    Much metta

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    Please take my words with a big grain of salt. I know nothing. Wisdom is only found in our whole-hearted practice together.
