It’s a great year to live in New England. First the Red Sox long-awaited
triumph, and now the Pats. Who could ask for more?
At last New Yorkers have realized that Boston is best, and will stop trying
to compete. 🙂
Oh yes, there was John Kerry’s defeat– but what can you say? My wife
canvassed in New Hampshire for Kerry, but that kind of Massachusetts
trifecta would have been once in a century, if ever, and was probably too
way much to ask for and expect. Perhaps we partisan Pilgrims didn’t have
our priorities exactly straight? ( It’s been known to happen.)
But we learn to do the best we can and let go, and whatever happens,
happens. We keep on.
I know you might think that a Downtown Lama, a veritable Pajama Lama,
probably doesn’t get out much, go to games and such, nor follow the polls;
but a man cannot live by spirituality alone…. And let me tell you, I’ve
tried! Anyway, there is really no inside nor out.
To quote one of my best Tibetan friends, an enlightened lama from Nepal
named the Dragon Master (Gyalwang Drukpa) who visited my meditation retreat
center outside Austin in November–yes, amidst the very sea of red: ” I
like and am interested in everything, all that is good and not harmful.”
Perhaps we’ll rename our Austin center the George Bush Buddhist Center,
just to make our contribution to peace and reconciliation. Whaddya think?
For I have met the enemy (so-called), and They ‘R Us.
We must change our lives.
