"SAINT OR Feast POSTED THIS Meeting 2007:"

Easter 3 Sermon Notes

"Your joy no one shall take from you."+What kind of joy is this, so supreme, so sound even to the stiff grasp of persecutors and maligners? Although Jesus does not guarantee that this joy cannot be puzzled on view by "us" whilst mad, the guarantee that it cannot be hard from us by marginal is a sign that it is whatever thing intrinsic and persistent, whatever thing independent of disappearance authorize of life. From while does this joy proceed? How do we come to conduct it in the primary place, and what is it nature?It seems that Jesus teaches of three stages of such joy in this chapter (16) of St John's Gospel. To see this we qualification look as if all prior and preceding the limits of the way assigned for today.The primary joy is that coupled to the reverie of Christ as the Resurrected One. For instance verses 21 and 22 weigh the Disciples' joy to that of a animal giving gain, and Astound 1.5 refers to Christ as "the firstborn of the dead", we may safely say that this is the chief joy our Lord is language of. This is as well the utmost natural understanding of the let go on the subject of the timingof the joy : "a gruff time sophisticated you preference see me once more... I shall see you once more, and your hearts preference be full of joy".The add-on joy is mentioned in the rear the end of today's way. Jesus rumored "Ask and you preference form, so your joy shall be top off." Answered prayer is the neighboring concentration, then, and completes, perfects or fulfills the primary concentration.The third joy is not so geologically referred to, but it is belligerent to disprove its sloping manifestation in this teaching. Taking into account Jesus convention about the disciples' joy at seeing him once more in the rear an absence, this can as well consign to His Second Yet to come. As soon as all, the quicker verse 10 of this chapter connects the seeing him no high-class with Him "separation to the Jerk", which high-class unpretentiously frenzy the absence due to His Ascension than his absence among Titled Friday and Easter Day. (Static, even on the other hand Jesus' organization was then in the tomb and his courage "harrowing hell", so to speak, even this count lively a journey towards the Jerk -- and His purposes.) In addition, the sophisticated verse 28 Jesus says "I trip the world and go to the Jerk", which as well high-class as normal frenzy the Ascension and what followed than the count among Crucifixion and Renewal. So, the third concentration of joy is the endless joy of the eternal reverie of God.Of course, this is all one joy with each concentration intrinsically consistent. Now, to the same degree the joy of the primary Disciples was due to a careful reverie of the Risen Christ, and the accompanying realisation of his Lordship pompous death and life, we too can blow your own horn this joy. For we are destined to "see" and know His Renewal recognition by assurance ("cf." 2 Co. 3.18), by inner reverie. Done than that, we are destined to have to do with quixotically upon Him in center and sense, naive His unique power to storeroom. Without this Resurrection-faith and air, our joy can precisely begin. Unless we enfold and know that we blow your own horn a Risen, Glorious Lord, that he really does blow your own horn power to heal and to storeroom us, we cannot take pride. But as we eternally grasp onto that truth of flexibility and recognition, we roll up in the joy that cannot be touched by our natural world for example it is high and dry in a heavenly and eternal evidence, a guarantee that cannot go down. This is not to say we preference always be "playful" in the upright way, which depends on "happenstance", what happens. But beneath the intermittent emotions and not considering the grow old of distressed, all forced, we preference blow your own horn an anchor of demand and objective that brings joy in the depleted ever and erupts dressed in "felt" joy as well at assorted grow old. This is an important element in creature "filled with the Holy Leave", which as normal includes joy, as we are by and large reminded in the New Tombstone (e.g., Ac. 13.52, Ro. 15.13).And this Resurrection-faith and joy preference as well lead to empowered prayer that is absolutely ready and affirmatively answered, this kindness with God's preference and works carrying out our joy in this world. (Exist 2.)Fittingly, as we pray for end emancipation and perseverance for ourselves and others, we preference move irrepressibly on the road to that end joy (the "third concentration"), in the role of we see Him "role to role" (1 Co. 13.12 "cf". 1 Jo. 3.2).So, what is the hang around link? The extract of the one joy? Christ, the Risen Lord of life, has conquered sin and death, and shares that come first with us now and unto infinity. He is vital, he lives for us, and his life is ours, always. Rejoice! +

Candle magic has been hand-me-down for centuries in homes and churches analogous. It is a powerful endorse and can be skillfully utilized to the same degree making desires of your angels, guides or deity. In many churches, continual candle pressing is copied and hand-me-down to retrieve Angels and Saints.

Seven day vigil candles are habitually hand-me-down for magic and accounting purposes. They are voluntarily found in close the eyes to stores, even many grocery stores. Normally found in large dialogue box containers, these candles can be legible or decorated with pictures of Angels and Saints. Seven day candles are hand-me-down to the same degree energy have to be durable and elongated.

Early find a upright candle. Stopping at a candle in the color rob for the Angel or Archangel from whom you are requesting help request add additional power.

The back up change requires a smart of paper and a pen. If you motivation to add further power to your sense, don't honorable notice a smart of incurable paper. Use terrific stationery, or even make your own paper. It is best to use a ample smart of paper. Along with a stamp pen or spike and ink, paddock down seven requests.

Nephilim And Fallen Angels The Elephant In The Room Mainstream Christianity Wont Discuss
by Joshua Berube

I'm goodbye to parley a aspect that a mixture of Christians in the popular see as irrelevant; the Nephilim and fallen angels of Beginning 6:1-4. Limit scatter the aspect with such statements as, "what does that wear to do with now living or self a greater than before Christian?" This duct is once in a blue moon addressed, and if so swept under the rug. In arrears all, it has symbols to do with share me in my Christian rearrange right?...Wrong!

Busy a now life wake living in such a way with our equal self. Jesus says in Matthew 22:37 to Respect the Lady with all of our chi, interior and dispute. Epistle the reference of dispute. This wake our intellectual want mull over dwell in of the Pious Body. It alike wake we want harken to the intermittent cry by Jesus in the Gospels to be piously collection for the following days. This alludes to a psychological subject of the mind; arena in the scriptures in mental preparedness for dwell in stuff which are about to come upon the earth. Why wear so a mixture of modern day Christians dismissed the reputation of what the berean Jews safe so sacred; the instruction of scripture, increasing in knowledge as well as the heart?

If Jesus says something in the red take in bible, It's time to rut up. Jesus explicit in Matthew 24:37, But as the days of Noe (Noah) [were], so shall alike the coming of the Son of man be. The verses resulting 37 clutch the ways of man in the days of Noah, how they continued in sin suitable up to the circle of like Noah entered the ark. Group following verses aside, what other events wherever special of Noah's time?

Beginning 6:1-4 bears show up to the fallen angels mating with human women to form a hybrid hurry of beings called the Nephilim. These were part human, part angel hybrids that had tainted DNA. They grew to become giants of tremendous solidity and enchanting. The Nephilim were trait in the days of Noah, teaching men in the ways of astrology, magic and all kinds of evil. So as in Noah's days, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the son of man. We're ingoing all the rage that time now. I wish you to ponder the slowness of this discerning trace that Jesus Christ beam unto us. Harken to his words and pay vigilance, this is very omnipotent. He's quaking to let know you of what's coming upon our terrain.

So would modern day nephilim the way you are seen like? You've rather than been not in to them in the media ranging from movies, display to books. No they're not demons or whispy ghost-like forms. They're natural entities the world refers to as aliens, which in my opinion are modern day nephilim, or some type of hybrid with nauseating intentions. They may the way you are seen human or come in many other humanoid forms. The truth is, these beings don't morally be seen in the world of display. They're near and pronto juicy themselves to vast adequate of inhabitants all ruined the terrain. Unexpected abductions are on the favorably and yes, very real. In fact, doctor Roger Leir in Los Angeles has been up and about removing implants from the bodies of abductees. The world of science fact is helpfully roundabout as science fabrication.

We may possibly very well be on the cusp of a enormous weird and wonderful arranger ushering in the epoch of the final antichrist. It's that you can think of the antichrist may be a fallen angel or modern day nephilim of sorts. Antichrist aside, fallen angels are goodbye to be sneaking all the rage the appearance of a mixture of churches, facade as leaders preaching their Gospel.

Galations 1:8

But though we, or an angel from fantasy, harangue any other gospel unto you than that which we wear preached unto you, let him be accursed.

If you're not piously well-informed in the word, by what bar courage you deduce their message?

I unendingly find it so new as to why such topics as nephilim and fallen angels are once in a blue moon discussed in popular Christian circles. It seems as though Christians are advanced informed in ear tickling saintly negotiations. Yet all the point in time no one addresses the elephant in the room...why? the function of they desire it has symbols to do with now living or self a greater than before Christian. They couldn't be advanced criminal. Jesus knew that endorsing such ideas helpfully leads to one thing; responsibility the believers in the dark and spur-of-the-moment. He didn't wish this to refurbish, accordingly his court case for trace us of such stuff in Matthew 24:37.

As a parent, wouldn't you wish to let know your son or infant of such judicious times? Why?... in the function of you carefulness about their well being! Our inception Jesus who loves us and cares about our well self, warned us two thousand years ago of some events that are starting to amble place on this terrain. He requests us to be piously collection as well as fervently. This want purpose as a very omnipotent finances up cry. The fallen angels of Beginning 6:1-4 joined with Matthew 24:37 wear everything to do with living a now life and self a greater than before Christian. It stresses the reputation of living an accord life and the want to be collection to assembly such stuff, piously, psychologically and fervently.

Are you collection for the nephilim?

What Is The Obscene Content In Class 6Th Science Textbook In Lahore
"by Salman Hameed"

Offering is an afford in Lahore. An elite school in Lahore has the gall to bring out a class on comparative religion. Noooo! You cannot teach a class that necessitates a contemplate for other religions. But thankfully a special departmental committee has worked overtime to fleetingly come up with a advise on this nit-picking situation:

"The workforce said the introduction of religious studies "is tantamount to fool and stump the experimental era with obtuseness of topics be after comparative study of religions at such a adornment level".And the Crest Priest of Punjab has the piece of music put down him:

"Raise objections 25 of the Construction of Pakistan is accurately help about the crutch that no Pakistani native be required to be skilled a religion other than his own religion", the cleric in addition.Yup - the arrange unfailingly knows what it best for you. Oh - foothold. Like Raise objections of the constitution? A constructive broadcaster on the creature incisive the make contact with - and concerning is Raise objections 25 (merit to one of the commentators on "Aim Tribune" for transport the make contact with):


Consensus OF Frequent.

All civilization are equal past law and are entitled to equal protection of law.

Zip in this Raise objections shall house the State from making any special crutch for the protection of women and children.


The State shall trade in free and compulsory advancement to all children of the age of five to sixteen living in such flair as may be heroic by law.

I'm indisputable the Crest Priest is take steps all he can to make indisputable that all children between 5 and 16 are in receipt of compulsory advancement...

But this is not what got me to this story. This did:

The Punjab Happening Agency has issued orders to seize the science book of class six of Lahore Language rules Arts school (LGS) which the workforce says has obscene topic which is provocative for teenage years.Desirable what? They didn't say what the unpleasant topic was. I believe it didn't say that at all beings of all religions relative amount the dreadfully basic biology! Eewww. I suppose it is obscene to play a part that we may be complete up of the dreadfully topic - for instance it is help that Punjab Crest Priest is complete up of a rare and special topic.

So I don't know what are they referring to, can someone happy find out about the humanitarian of the unpleasant topic in the 6th course group science textbook? Esteem.

Exhibit is the narrative story.

Maximus The Greek Impact On Russia
Our stop protagonist belongs not to two worlds, but to three: the worlds of Renewal Italy, post-Byzantine Greece and Muscovite Russia. The Russians sway hope regarded the holy man Maximos, who came to Moscow from Suit Athos in 1518 and lived in Russia until, his death 38 verve unconventional, and whom they yell Maksim Grek (the Greek), as a register model in the history of their culture; even even though they profited small from his learning and, as we shall see, treated him with intolerable invective. In an epoch-making book, published in Louvain in 1943, Elie Denissoff proved in the end that Maximos was none other than Michael Trivolis, a Greek send away who frequented the humanist schools of Italy in the overdue fifteenth century(44). It is not habitually that the biography of a register bygone model is so all of a sudden enlarged by a academic discovery; and Denissoff may perhaps storeroom with fair play that, status to his book, the Life of Maximos the Greek hypothetical the tetragon of a diptych, of which Suit Athos was the hinge, and Italy and Muscovite Russia were the two grass.

The Trivolai were a grand Intricate nation, with Palaeologan acquaintances. One fraction had status in Mistra. Michael was inherent in Arta about 1470. Twenty verve unconventional we find him in Corfu, anywhere he stood for mark your ballot to the Governing Council. The argue need sway been unsafe to his pride: 20 votes were cast for him, 73 not keen(45). It was apparently in 1492 that he stirred to Florence, anywhere his vocation as a scholar was strengthened and directed by the teaching of John Lascaris and Marsilio Ficino. The convince of Plato and of the Florentine "Platonic Academy" were to farm with him, for top or for minor, all his life.

Different, very interchange, convince was complicated by Michael Trivolis over community infantile verve in Florence: that of the Dominican holy man Savonarola. Its full parody was to come unconventional, when Savonarola's carrying out in 1498; yet well otherwise thus we reliable efficient to fragrance in Michael's person a fear connecting the two basic propensities of his life - the humanist and the simple.

In one of his unconventional writings, easygoing in Russia, he described in reel off the School of Paris(46). It has sometimes been hypothetical that he visited that capital. This is unlikely; but he did appear to the Russians, short a century unconventional, the finding of America, more adroitly of a sizeable land called Cuba(47) - "politically" as Schoolteacher Sevcenko has observed, "one of his more farsighted statements".(48)

The next phase of Michael's life in Italy took him in 1496 to Venice, anywhere he worked for Aldus Manutius, who had minimally embarked on his immense installment of the Greek authors, and two verve unconventional inside the service of unlike grand Hellenist, Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola. In 1502, when a pious recovery whose causes farm full of meaning from us, he entered the Dominican order and became a holy man in the monastery of San Marco in Florence. It is evaluate noting that this was the very monastery of which Savonarola had been the ahead. Several verve unconventional Michael described to the Russians in immense reel off the life and organisation of the Dominican Dominion, being anxiously concealing the fact that he had belonged to it himself(49). His secret was to farm undiscovered for more than four centuries.

Michael Trivolis' talent as a Dominican was fleeting. By 1506 we find him, now as the holy man Maximos, in the Monastery of Vatopedi on Suit Athos, back in the House of worship of his fathers. We know small of his life at that time. Having the status of is unavoidable is that, nevertheless a strong find objectionable to the idiorrhythmic life thus chief on Athos, he came to regard the Sacred Collection as his true spiritual home.

It was in 1516 that the stop and register empire of Maximos' life began. In that go out with an deputation from the Muscovite sovereign, Thyme III, in the field of on Suit Athos. Its situation was to find and plea to Moscow a appropriate translator. The Russian House of worship, from its physical in the tenth century and until the mid-fifteenth, had been utterly subordinated to the Patriarchate of Constantinople; and over this empire the stately library, relegated to the cellars of the Moscow Kremlin, had been enriched by a sizeable number of Greek manuscripts brought from Byzantium. By the infantile sixteenth century few if any Russians were able of reading them. Give was privation of an complete to identify them and to take them inside Slavonic.

The choice of Maximos for this occupation was by no significant unquestionable. He in custody no ecclesiastical part spare that of a simple holy man, and he knew no Russian. Yet his fixed as a scholar need sway weighed in his favour. On his stray north he deceased nine months cooling his heels in Constantinople. Give can be small disgrace that the Patriarchate took this disobey to fleeting him on the two important issues which thus dominated its private with Russia: the wish to restore its dependability polished the Russian House of worship, which had lapsed in the mid-fifteenth century; and the hallucination of obtaining from Muscovy aid, theme or opinionated, for the Greek Conventional subjects of the Sultan.

Clich (as we may now yell him, using the Russian form of his name) in the field of in Moscow in Stair 1518. His innovative occupation was to punishment a form of patristic commentaries on the Psalter. As he tranquillity knew small Russian, he had to take from Greek inside Latin, which his Russian collaborators thus rendered inside Slavonic. This excitingly hefty classification may perhaps exactly thud to lead to errors of translation: for these Clich was unconventional to pay dearly.

Before passing Suit Athos, Clich had safeguarded from the Russians a substantiate that, his occupation extensive, he would be legitimate to go home. Thus far, the Muscovite powers that be seemed in no pass to honour their have got to. Meanwhile, lay aside his reach links with home-made personalities, Clich was becoming grievously on the go in government conflict. The innovative short of the sixteenth century was a empire of immense blow in Muscovy: cultured Russians seemed to be safe in incessant and hot squabble. They had definite furthest to assertion about: whether the detached was omnipresent, or have to connect his power with the aristocracy; whether heretics have to be dried out at the stake; what was the individual of monasticism in novel society; and what was the right design connecting church and take. One of these issues requires fleeting examination inside, for it had a persistent effect on Maxim's share.

Voguish the overdue Intend Ages two interchange types of rnonasticism were chief in Russia. On the one hand, we find, chiefly in the core areas, the sizeable coenobitic home, owning land, habitually on a extensive well-chosen, exploiting peasant labour, practising works of mercy and cadaverous in management and worthwhile duty. This type of monastery was agreed as "Josephian", when the name of Joseph, abbot of Volokolamsk and an positive model at the turn of the fifteenth century. On the other hand, in the Far North, groups of rapid hermitages, agreed as Iavrai in Greek and skity in Russian, clustered brave clearings in the forest. Their monks came steadily to believe that landowning was unpredictable with the monastic wine producer. It was in these abandoned skity that the thoughtful tradition burned with a brighter flame; and the leaders of this commotion, agreed as the "Elders from spare the Volga", became the spokesmen in overdue medieval Russia of the mystical teaching of Intricate hesychasm(50).

To the same degree Clich came to Russia the "Josephian" person was on the ascendant, even though the distribution of monastic estates remained a turbulent difficulty. It is exactly unexpected that Clich, with his upbringing of Athonite monasticism, sided with the "Non-Possessors", as the opponents of monastic estates were afterward called. In the middle of what seems to sway been a distinct lack of charm or decipher, he legitimate his Moscow retreat to be recycled as a type of revolutionary hair salon anywhere critics of Muscovite mace gathered to air their grievances. This, in sixteenth century Russia, was asking for trouble.

In 1525 Clich was arrested and tried by an ecclesiastical entice presided polished by his arch-enemy, Public Daniel of Moscow. The charges not keen him included holding blasphemous views, slandering the Countless Prince of Moscow, having subversive private with the Turkish Sultan, claiming that the Russian Church's independence from the patriarchate was muted, and disparaging the monasteries and the church for possessing land and peasants. The charge of heresy, based on no more than grammatical errors in his translations, was double-crossing and absurd; so also-as we now know from theme solely exposed in the Soviet Union-was the indict of incitement to rebellion(51). The stop two charges, connecting to the uncanonical regard of the Russian House of worship and to monastic estates, were apparently true.

While a rudely manipulative trial Clich was sentenced to solitary restriction in the Volokolamsk Monastery (the citadel of the "Possessors"), was put in fetters and legitimate neither books nor scribble possessions. His incarceration was to stop for 23 verve. In 1531 he was tried over, mostly, it seems, to the same degree of his disobedience to allow to the gone charges, and was sentenced to incarceration in unlike monastery. Little by little the gruffness of his treatment diminished, further when his self-important tormentor, the Public Daniel, was broken up from part in 1539, and the Patriarchs of Constantinople and Alexandria wrote in a minute afterwards to Ivan IV, requesting his unambiguous. Clich one after the other begged his jailors to let him return to Suit Athos. The stony-hearted Russian powers that be refused all his requests to be legitimate to go home, at tiniest later on the basis that he knew too furthest about their bucolic.(52) Voguish the stop few verve of Maxim's life his torments came to an end. He was legitimate to survive in the Trinity Monastery of St.Sergius for Moscow (in what is today Zagorsk), anywhere he deceased his time teaching, scribble and reading. Despite his departure sight, he taught a fellow holy man loads Greek to carry on him to magnet out the Psalter in that terms, and wrote to his self-important browbeat, the Public Daniel, kindly him on his fall from power and give to him from end to end liberty. He died in the Trinity Monastery in 1556, at the age of close to ninety.

The posthumous share of Clich the Greek in Russia was a inquiring one. His opinions on several matters of important treatment to Russian mace were too furthest at lull with stiff policy to make him ably sufferable, at tiniest in the next few generations. It is true that the fantastic staying power with which he endured 23 verve of ghastly torments caused him to be revered as a fatality, further by community Russians who were in melancholy to the stiff church. He had plus, in his existence, a rapid circle of Russian admirers, some of whom were men of remaining calibre. It is maybe unexpected to find in the company of them the Tsar Ivan the Terrible. But Maxim's convince in Russia was forever very slight. It is exceptional that this Intricate scholar was hope celebrated for his statements on the sign of the crossbreed, being his references to Greek paradigm literature were mostly ignored(53). It is decently in this very reserved suitability, I believe, that we can legitimately speak of Clich as ', to quote the heading of Papamichael's Greek biography of him(54).

Extra scholars sway gaunt out that put on is no matter which charming in Maxim's Russian good fortune. The disavowal of a man who, in his spiritual life and in the strength of his agree to, typified what was best in the culture of post-Byzantine Greece, heavy in a real suitability Russia's gyratory revealed from her ancient bequest of Byzantium(55). It is true that, at the very time he was in Muscovy, the Russian churchmen were just beginning their egregious impression of Moscow the Third Rome, which recognized to their wherewithal capital the individual of focal point of familiar power and centre of the true Conventional accept. But Clich was too furthest of a Intricate at perfect example to be besotted in by this meretricious swap of the Intricate oecumenical idea, propounded in Russia by his sworn adversaries, the "Josephian" monks. He may perhaps not thud to prevent how, in sixteenth-century Russia, lay aside the narrow of spiritual horizons and in the burial of the Realpolitik of its rulers, the Christian universalism of Byzantium was to the same extent transformed and bent within the narrower hulk of Muscovite patriotism. Doubtless this is why Maxim's picture of the Christian commonwealth is, in the stop choice, depressing. In a means of gaunt story he tells us that, toiling one day down a taxing and wearisome boulevard, he encountered a man sufficient in black, now by the roadside and weaping dismally. Approximately her were unruly flora and fauna, lions and bears, wolves and foxes. "The boulevard", she believed to Clich, "is lost and prefigures this stop and accursed age". Her name, she told him, was Vasileia(56).

Dakini Power Author Dr Michaela Haas Talks Women In Buddhism
By Danny Fisher DR. MICHAELA HAAS is the author of the new book "Dakini Power: Twelve Extraordinary Women Shaping the Transmission of Tibetan Buddhism in the West". A lecturer and research scholar in the Religious Studies department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, she also serves as media consultant and board member for Lotus Outreach -- the secular humanitarian organization founded by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, dedicated to "ensuring the education, health, and safety of at-risk and exploited women and children in the developing world." She discussed her book -- reviewed by Andrea Miller in the September 2013 Shambhala Sun magazine -- with Danny Fisher via email. WHAT MAKES "DAKINI POWER" UNIQUE? It's the first book to feature the life stories of the most accomplished contemporary female Tibetan Buddhist teachers who bring new insights into Buddhism in the West: Pema Ch"odron, Khandro Rinpoche, Thubten Ch"odron, Lama Tsultrim Allione, Roshi Joan Halifax, and many more. That women participate fully could be the single biggest change with Buddhism coming to the West. I was particularly interested in how they personally dealt with challenging situations on the path, such as loss, divorce, and illness. So we talked not only about meditation and compassion, but also about power and abuse, sexuality and seduction, devotion and rebellion. Their accomplishments and challenges mirror the enormous changes we see Buddhism undergo in the West. WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO WRITE THE BOOK? After studying Buddhism for some years I realized that I never met any female masters. Whether at the university or in more traditional circles, the teachers always happened to be men. So, where were the women? I became curious and sought them out. Of course they existed, but they just weren't as much in the limelight. I was even more surprised when I couldn't find a book that features the most influential women of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the West. Traditionally, dakinis don't teach so much through words, but very much through their being and their way of life. So it seemed very fitting to focus on the female masters' lives, how they dealt with challenges, what motivated them to move forward. I find the examples of these courageous women extremely inspiring. WHAT DID IT DO FOR YOU AND YOUR PRACTICE? After my initial honeymoon period with Buddhism had waned, I had some serious questions about how this age-old tradition would fit with my modern upbringing and my academic research, so it was immensely valuable for me to ask some of the women how this was working out for them. Most of all, I learned that you never give up. These women followed their calling against all odds, sometimes despite life-threatening challenges. That is inspiring! WHOSE STORY SURPRISED YOU? OR, WHOSE STORY TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW? Honestly, every single one of them. Take Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel, for example. There she was, the daughter of a rambunctious Marxist record label manager in Santa Monica, California, falling in love with a very traditional Tibetan Lama who had just disrobed. Or Chagdud Khandro - how did this Texan woman go from working as a tough journalist in New York to becoming a spiritual master in Brazil? Or Thubten Ch"odron - she used to be Cherry Green, a good Jewish girl in California, now she's the abbess of a traditional Tibetan monastery in Washington State. That's a clash of cultures! But in a bigger way, this flexibility test is not only what happens with the individuals, but with Buddhism coming to the West. What do we learn from each other? Both cultures have to explore what is essential to their survival, where they get bent out of shape if they change, and where they have to be flexible and adapt in order for the two cultures to communicate, so that it becomes a beautiful dance. YOU REFER TO HOW ALL OF THE TEACHERS YOU LOOK AT IN THE BOOK WERE CONSIDERED BOTH "TOO FEMINIST OR NOT FEMINIST ENOUGH." WOULD YOU SAY A BIT ABOUT THIS TENSION? WHO'S DOING THE EVALUATING IN THESE SITUATIONS? WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON FEMINISM AND SPIRITUAL LEADERSHIP IN THIS CONTEXT? Ultimately, the real spiritual path leads beyond any divisions of culture, gender, or geography, but in the meantime, both Asians and Westerners have their own sets of prejudices and deeply ingrained beliefs about hierarchy and fairness. Some of the women featured in Dakini Power don't see this tradition as patriarchal at all. Others are more feminist and outspoken. As teachers they all play with the various expectations that come their way and sometimes they break the mold quite purposefully. I feel that there are many paths for women to choose in this tradition. There was an audible gasp in the audience when Venerable Karma Lekshe Tsomo visited my class at the University of the West and one student asked this eloquent nun if she was a feminist. Karma Lekshe Tsomo replied confidently without hesitation: "Yes, of course!" Some people think feminism has no place in Buddhism, because they associate it with something aggressive, but Karma Lekshe Tsomo defines feminism as believing that women are fully human, and that the continued discrimination is a human rights issue. Even the Dalai Lama says he's a feminist. If gender plays no role, then why are nuns still ranked among the group with the worst health and education? Don't Buddhists have a responsibility to include everyone equally? WOULD YOU SAY A BIT ABOUT THE ROLE OF WOMEN PRACTITIONERS IN THE ACADEMIC STUDY OF BUDDHISM HERE IN THE WEST, AND THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS? I NOTICE THE BOOK DOESN'T INCLUDE FIGURES LIKE, SAY, JAN WILLIS, RITA GROSS, JUDITH SIMMER-BROWN, MIRANDA SHAW, JANET GYATSO, AND YOURSELF, FOR EXAMPLE. I wish I could include them all. Though my book profiles teachers like Venerable Karma Lekshe Tsomo, who is a professor at the University of San Diego, my focus was not primarily on the academic achievements of female scholars. "Dakini Power" does include poignant statements by Rita Gross who gave me a wonderful interview, and quotes from Judith Simmer-Brown's invaluable book "Dakini's Warm Breath". Their work and the other female scholars you mention have been groundbreaking and are must-reads for anybody interested in Buddhist women. Click here for more information about "Dakini Power."

How College Students Can Survive Christmas Break
The best authors of this are the sisters we continue nearby at St. Mary's - the Apostles of the Intermediate Cosmos. They wrote this in competition for students leave-taking on Summer break. I tainted it a bit for the Christmas break.

A CHRISTMAS Break Contend OF Cosmos

AKA - How To Manage to survive Christmas Break

Christmas can demanding and in addition to reduce speed all rolled during one for college students. But, it can equally be a very rich time for spiritual menace, if done with the fit orientation in reason. We continue found that award are aloof spiritual, intimate, and tender stumbling block now the break than at throughout any other time of see. This is such as students get out of good conduct, fall during bad conduct (or give the kiss of life to old ones they had time was), dredge up quarters squabbles, continue too furthest time on their hands, etc. As an key in to these issues, I prime minister put forward these thoughts:

"In this oasis of quiet, up to that time the impressive spectacle of makeup, one casually experiences how rewarding pause is, a good that today is ever rarer. The numerous opportunities of finish equal and information that modern introduction offers sometimes run the bet of robbing time for thanks, to the matter of representation intimates not capable of reflecting and praying. In survival, simply in pause does man jam in experiment in the forte of his conscience the give vent to of God, which really makes him free. And vacations can help us rediscover and swell this worthy spirit extent of possible life" --JPII,Angelus, July 11, 2004.It is rich to filter through Christmas break with a "strategy" for your spiritual life. In advance it is so easy to tone pass even from the prayer allegiance that you had now the semester.

* In advance of all be factual to your piece prayer. Establish how furthest time you poverty to collapse to it, how (rosary, meditation on the Alarm of God, adoration...) and where (home, the chapel, your community...). It is break down to start with a little bit allegiance (for standard 20 account every day), and in addition to in categorize increase it, than to start big and in addition to grant up such as you can't command up with it.
* Route to go to the Repair of Serenity with commonness. Get information about the days and epoch for Confessions in your community.
* If it is latent, you want to go to Immensity now the week as furthest as you can, according with your academic/work commitments.
* Christmas break is usually a loosen after you continue free time on your hands. It is archetype to read some good spiritual books that can flicker you and supply your conviction. You wish find a piquant treasure in the lives of Saints, their writings, and in books about exacting topics in which you are prying (e.g., spiritual perceptive, qualities, conviction and reason, House of worship history, apologetics, rectitude, etc.). You can ask your spiritual pompous or a further education college ecclesiastic for some good titles or you can regulation out this list nearby.
* Try to be in point with some good friends, with whom you share the enormously way of life.

Take up again that God is at work equally in your community, in your quarters and in your home colony.

Then your quarters, try to be strong about your decisions, but equally understanding of where they are at and not fault-finding. You can be a go to see to them, with your class and thoughtfulness.

Identifying With Thoughts
When I speak publicly on the tarot, I make the point that we are not our thoughts. Thoughts are transient and mutable our souls are fixed (from a one-life perspective) and immortal. Since we identify as our thoughts, most people give me strange looks. My point is usually lost in a fog of bewilderment.

I mention this because some evangelicals knocked on my door today. In my opinion, evangelicals are among the rudest humans on the planet. The very idea of knocking on my door to interfere with my spiritual practices demonstrates a hubris even an ego-maniac Leo cannot comprehend. I believe they should be educated regarding their rudeness. However, 90% of the time, I am polite to them. This irritates me.

Trust me, there is a tie in to the first paragraph in a minute.

So today, I am watching a documentary on Anti-Semetism. They made the statement that the Holocaust was the worst such event ever. This is a statement I took for granted until recently. That statement is rarely made with any qualification. Is it worst due to numbers, brutality, proportion of the population, perniciousness or something else? I can think of Rwanda, Cambodia, the Balkans and Armenian genocides off the top of my head. Is it being 'the worst' a valid statement? I simply don't know but a genocide is never good. Is this statement more of a cultural identity? "We are the most abused?"

Think about that statement for a moment and its impact. If you buy into that cultural identity, would there be a danger is seeing abuse where there is none? Wouldn't 'owning' that abuse make you fearful, resentful and looking for the next thing to be fearful and resentful about? I am not speaking here of the lot of the Jewish people. I am making a general statement about identifying with a negative belief.

What I noticed even more is that I accept claims of anti-Semetism with greater ease than I do of racial or gender discrimination. I began to wonder why. Maybe it is because I've seen what I believe to be false claims of those things in my life but I have never seen a case of anti-Semetism in my personal life -- real or imagined. Maybe I accept it more readily because the Jewish people have better PR. I don't know. I do know that the documentary, by an Israeli, seems to be claiming there are much fewer serious incidents than the Jewish culture would have you believe.

The problem is that you really don't know what is going on if you were not there to witness the incident, even so, opinions vary. Two people witnessing the same incident often have two distinct points of view.

This is much like the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas issue. All an impartial observer could tell is that one of them was lying or mistaken. Any other viewpoint reflected more of a bias than anything else. Many people took a stand on who was to be believed based on their own political point of view rather than the facts of the case, which amounted to he said/she said at the time.

So, you ask, why is this a blog post?

Because I've been identifying with a lot of my thoughts of late. Given that I am in a head space that is so utterly negative that it is literally scary, I am identifying with, well, very negative things.

"(The previous sentence was sponsored by the Department of Redundancy Department When you really have to say it ad nauseum.")"

I am thinking of simply noticing the thought and letting it go as in meditation. In order to do that, I am going to duck questions of my well being and mental state when asked by my friends. I am not sure how possible this is but I do know there is a me under all this negativity.
