Dalai Lama

I was flipping channels, and I saw him on the University of California channel (at the very endof my DiSH lineup). He was wearing his usual robes and a UCI sun visor, which he explained was because the light was too bright, not because he was advertising the University of California Irvine. He introduced his translator as his "English walking stick".

I've read a bunch of what he's written in collaboration with others, but I've never seen him on TV before. He has a wonderful smile.

I the dalai lama! Quakers talk about recognizing the Light within other people, and with the d.l., his Light is very recognizable. There's nothing between you and it, no pretense, no hidden agenda, no game.

At the same time, he's incredibly smart and funny.

OHMIGOD! I think I'm in love with the dalai lama! LOL.

He makes sense to me in a very real way that not very many people do.

LOL. Oh, yes!

Did you read "Destructive Emotions"? I buy books-on-mp3 from http:\\www.audible.com, and I listened to this one while I had a really boring temp job. It gave me something to focus on while I pushed the same buttons over and over.

Destructive emotions
That book is great!

I read it two years ago, it was a big part of my taking up meditation.

Re: Destructive emotions
I read it after I'd already been going to Quaker meeting for about a year. Quakers don't call what they do meditation, which is one of the many things I like about it.
But of course, I could recognize aspects of what he was talking about in my meeting experience.

I'm working my way through the library's copy during my library visits, which reminds me that I have to set up some more library visits.

I the dalai lama!

Ooops. This was supposed to be, "I *heart* the dalai lama."

I forgot about angle brackets and html...

*giggle* I saw it first in email, where the angle brackets came through.

But I like the html version. It's kind of like "I have buddha nature".
