Spirit Muse Sunday

Ricard Matthieu
After training in biochemistry at the Institute Pasteur, Matthieu Ricard left science behind to
move to the Himalayas and become a Buddhist monk--to pursue happiness at the basic human level, and as a subject of inquiry. Achieving happiness, he has come to believe, requires the same kind of effort and mind training that
any other serious pursuit involves.

i sure hope lots of people listen to these tapes and benefit from them. this is the kind of teaching that should be done in schools. i really like when he says: "we are like a pauper who has a big piece of gold under his hat but doesn't know about it".

I do the 'arranging' rather methodically, while having the pleasure of listening to each one. Usually over a few days. It's very satisfying.

I like so many quotable phrases, I couldn't pick one, or even many without listening again. I did that this morning on waking, and will surely do so many times, but not tonight.

I have some things I must go do, but I will return when I can sit and listen. Thanks for putting this together Michelle. (((hugs)))
