Off to NY, dealing with aftermath

I hadn't realized that my mother died right before John Daido Loori did.

The man had some good influence on my life.

With these deaths, and also with the death of my current teacher's brother it becomes clearer to me: this stuff about "we are the one's we've been waiting for?" Well, uh, now's the time.

I've had a middling impact in my life and my career, but life is rather serious now.

And also, somewhere along the way, I realized that preservation and transmittal of the tiny bit that I know and practice vitally depends now on me.

It's not a soft and gooey new age spirituality, it's that a lot more adamantine.

It's time.

And furthermore...

Please understand, I never had a secret chart
to get me to the heart of this
or any other matter
When he talks like this
you don't know what he's after
When he speaks like this,
you don't know what he's after.

To those very close to me, and also to my neice, this should be self-explanatory

Sometimes life compels you to do things that might not be socially correct, and grieve you to the marrow. And a loved one's death bequeaths to you a sedulous sense of duty, and the only way to honor their memory, is to be where you where born to be.

What is Glenn Beck trying to hide?

A lot of people understand that no one has found any proof that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a young girl in 1990.

So why is Glenn Beck trying to shut down a web site just for asking the question?

All kidding aside (and nobody's found any proof yet that Glenn Beck raped and murdered a girl in 1990) this bit from lawyers protesting Beck's attempt to remove the domain name asking this question is one of the great laugh-riots of legal annals.

Just read it; it is the first legal document I've ever read that makes specific reference to Richard Gere and gerbils.

And if you're wondering what's this all about...

I've been away...

Due to family matters getting significant, the planning/reporting time of year, and just fall in general, I've been busy.

Hopefully I'll get back to the Lankavatara Sutra this weekend or so.

'Cause anybody knows Muslims ain't...
