Continuing the discussion from The big Blue-J:
A student asked Soen Nakagawa during a meditation retreat, “I am very discouraged. What should I do?”
Soen replied, “Encourage others.”
I’m with you on the making it good. For Easter I’ve been thinking more of rebirth, and rejuvination.
I do see that others have seemed very down today. Not just on this forum, but in a lot of places. I feel out of step because I’m rather in awe. So many people on this forum are starting a new cycle in their year or their life.
Yes, there are some glitches in everyone life, but I see some people hatching out of their shells and waking up out depressions. I’ve been reading more posts about people getting stronger and coping better. Some are starting new meds, which takes courage. Some are starting new projects, which also takes courage.
To all that are waking up, beating this illness and reclaiming the joys that were once in your grasp, and to all who have yet to hatch but are still holding on, I wish you all a happy and rejuvenating Easter.
