The Seeker

In between times …is NOW.


I am a copy cat

Soooo….. what am up to now?

Oh, just spreading some smiles. It’s a smile that came from Ute Smile who has posted the The ABC of genuine happiness here that triggered the silly things I do at work to amuse myself. Thank you for making me smile, Ute.

Got to like what I do at work and I just love making co-workers a bit lighter and less serious.

Just take a look at this caricature photocopying his face. I’ve actually done it!

Sitting, Waiting, Listening

silencePrayer is largely just being silent: holding the tension instead of even talking it through, offering the moment instead of fixing it by words and ideas, loving reality as it is instead of understanding it fully.

Prayer is commonly a willingness to say “I don’t know.” We must not push the river, we must just trust that we are already in the river, and God is the certain flow and current. That may be impractical, but the way of faith is not the way of efficiency.

So much of life is just a matter of listening and waiting, and enjoying the expansiveness that comes from such willingness to hold. It is like carrying and growing a baby: women wait and trust and hopefully eat good food, and the baby is born.

~ Richard Rohr The Freedom of Not Knowing (Meditation 32 of 52) Adapted from unpublished recording


Endurance creates happy endings

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one endures that the final victory comes. ~ Buddha”

Dogs go through endurance test so that owners can have fun with them; dog obedience is one of the training they endure.  You say to the dog sit, the dog sits; bark, the dog barks; roll-over, the dog rolls-over.  This is a fun and simple way to train a dog and maybe, just maybe they become super dogs.

In my walks, I’ve met so many dogs that did not have this luxury.Dog wpc mexico

This was a street dog in Mexico. I wonder what kind of life he led prior to him being found by a good man, brought him to Canada and is now living a good life.

A dog rescued being trained to be a dog fighter is now a beautiful playful dog that loves playing with stones in the pond.  A stone and a pond is all what he loves to do now, no fighting.

For this dog, he endures the heat while his master tends to the garden.

Ani is our therapy dog during the long period of teachers strike days. She was there and endured all that touch, hugs, rubs, food, walks and plenty of love from all of us.

Without Ani during the strike, hours would have drag on and boring.  Thank you, Ani, for enduring the humans for we are a whole bunch of whiners.
