A friend of mine used a line from a poem and was given permission to use a song in her feature length film. She told me she went through his management in Canada and was granted permission without being charged a fee. Where are you Paula? I work on short films, the legal aspects are very interesting...

Diane! I love that poem. We just did a week-end on Basic Goodness, which is the first level in Shambhala training but a big huge subject. This poem speaks to basic goodness, to me anyway. The big step is to see this in ourselves. Our teacher said that when we critise (sp) it is like a huge finger po...

How do I feel about the meaning of life today? The news about the tragic violent needless death of those little girls pulls the rug out from under my feet. These kind of tragic events happen in other parts of the world and we may not hear about them. Humans can be so cruel. Treasure every moment and...

I see this song as a love song. To me it is about how difficult love can be, dancing together is a metaphor. I love "burning violin" violins can be so passionate. I can also see how others see it another way. This is the thing about art, it is open to interpretation of the person experiencing it. If...

Thanks for that Dem, it is multi-layered and powerful.

I have no idea what the Sakyong would say, probably something wiser than I could ever come up with. I really like the concept that when a person is free from attachment, me clothes, me car, me job, me is best at me job, me family, me house, me body, me pets, me life. Life is a lot easier, therefore ...

Ruling Your World is the name of the new book by Sakyong Mipham. It is a book about how you are ultimately responsible for your own reality. So maybe this is the meaning? The person who has learned to remove suffering (I prefer confusion) truly rules the(ir) world. Most of us are living in a haze—so...

On Mary Walsh's new show Hatching Matching and Dispatching the band was playing the Future at a wedding reception, very funny. True Love Leaves No Traces would be a good one.

It is hard to navigate with my limited French. The CBC site has a map of Canada and broadcasts in each time zone. It would be surprising to learn that Radio Canada does not do this. If I can find Radio Canada on my radio I will see what I can do about taping it. This will be a very busy week for me ...

The candle thing has to do with how once something has arisen it leads to the next moment, so once the fire is gone there is smoke then nothing and nothing cannot lead to a next moment. I am just saying in the absence of the fire leads to the creation of space which is a thing. Without space you wou...

It is nice to make contact with a sangha member. I consider all who study Buddhism sangha. I took refuge vows in 2004 Tri-me (tree may) is my refuge name and Bodhisattva vows this past spring. I belong to the Mukpo family, Shambhala, (what happens when one takes Bodhisattva vows). I have never parti...
