Merry post-apocolyptic Christmas everyone.
May your days be free from anxiety, christmas syndrome
and any concerns that the mayan calander was mistakenly read upside down - hence the world ending in 5105.
May you all have a happy day whether it be in the company of others or on your own. Remember the "spirit of christmas" is nothing but some mental dhammas that we hold dear: compassion, loving kindness, generosity, and patience.
And let me take this opportunity to thank you all for your contributions at Dhamma Wheel and making it the great online sangha that it is.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
