Virginia Tech

Mood: Sad

Say a prayer for those who perished on April 16, 2007 at Virginia Tech (and their families). Such a senseless loss of lives.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep."

Words on Kindness

Mood: Hopeful

This is what should be done by one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Developing our mind...

Mood: patient

By gradually developing our mind, our present limited compassion will grow and expand to become great compassion. This is made possible by reflecting again and again on the suffering of others...
Meditation is not a matter of trying to achieve ecstasy, spiritual bliss, or tranquility; nor is it attempting to become a better person. It is simply the creation of a space in which we are able to expose and undo our neurotic games, our self-deceptions, our hidden hopes and fear...

Mood: compassionate

"Though time to strive, not striving, while young and strong yet indeed, weak-minded and irresolute: one finds not wisdom’s way."
(Explanation: If an individual does not make an effort even at a time when exertion is due, if a person is lethargic even when he is young and strong; if a person suppresses the wholesome thoughts that arise in his mind, if he is lazy, he will not find the path to wisdom.)
