Atom Syndicated Feed Link Added. UPDATE: RSS Feed Added As Well

UPDATE: I have also added an RSS feed just below the atom feed on the bottom right side of the screen.

I have been pretty clueless as to syndicated feeds but I got an email from a reader wondering if I had one. Well, I have a FeedBlitz subscribe box but that's only for email subscription so I finally added the atom link down on the bottom right side of the blog screen. I hope that this helps those looking for my feed. Let me know if it isn't working and I'll work on it some more. Thanks!!

Enough business but all I have time for today is a quote without my usual commentary after. However, I don't think this quote needs much commentary:

Imagine a child sleeping next to its parents and dreaming it is being beaten or is painfully sick. The parents cannot help the child no matter how much it suffers, for no one can enter the dreaming mind of another. If the child could awaken itself, it could be freed of this suffering automatically. In the same way, one who realizes that his own Mind is Buddha frees himself instantly from the sufferings arising from [ignorance of the law of] ceaseless change of birth-and-death. If a Buddha could prevent it, do you think he would allow even one sentient being to fall into hell? Without Self-Realization one cannot understand such things as these.

--Bassui Tokusho Zenji

Thank-you. I love hugs!! :)


Absolutely. Thich Nhat Hanh has such a talent of expressing profound wisdom via just a few words. He is a great teacher.

I'll be over and check out your post--thanks for the feature. You are kind. _/I\_

Thanks for the thought provoking quote.

Nice tattoo James. Nice quote too.

Yes, I do!! I come from a family of huggers. I think hugs do a lot to lift our spirits and feel connected with others. It is a beautiful way of expressing our inter-connectedness.

I'm glad you like the ink. I would indeed like to see your pictures of the tats. I thought others would really like that quote as much as I did. :)


Thank-you very much. :)
