Dear friends of St. John's Center,
As you no doubt have noticed, it's taking a bit more time than we expected to get our web site up and running. And so, in the meantime, I've decided to start a blog. I'll be able to post schedule changes, reminders and make other announcements here so do plan to check in regularly. The nice thing about the blog program is that each one of you can post comments of your own very easily. Perhaps using this blog as a place to connect will help us all to strengthen our sense of community.
For now, I leave you with these thoughts:
What we need to experience, and what we can experience, is a saner and gentler state of mind. This experience is not found in something outside of us... We must work with our own minds, with our own abilities, in order to have peaceful, rich minds.
- Khenp Karthar Rinpoche
True quiet means keeping still when the time has come to keep still, and going forward when the time has come to go forward. In this way rest and movement are in agreement with the demands of the moment, and thus there is light in life.
- The I Ching
Blessings to all,
