James: This song by Bjork is a serene meditation complete with mokugyo beats that aid in counting deep, relaxing breaths. I float through the heavy Saturday evening like I was riding upon notes as they rose skyward propelled by their vibrations; twinkling in the minds eye like dancing stars. Soon this moment will fade, and I will ease seamlessly into a dream state. Morning awaits. Sleep well, friends.
A Zen Buddhist who follows in the tradition of Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh but I enjoy teachings from all Buddhist traditions. In addition, I am influenced by Taoism and Secular Humanism. I am also a nature lover and live with Schizo-Affective Disorder. The blog is titled, "The Buddhist Blog" because it was all that I could think of for a name. It does not mean that somehow I think my blog is the definitive blog on Buddhism. It is not. It is one traveler's footprints and nothing more. I am not a Buddhist teacher. This blog is a journal of my humble travels as I try to follow the middle path of Buddhism. Take my hand and walk with me for awhile. I have a university degree in U.S. History with a special emphasis in African history. As well as a minor in World Geography.
