I realize I say that to describe most meetings, but last night the four hour ordeal that we endured was truly just that ---- the meeting from hell.  If you look up the word "Idiot" in the dictionary, you will find the name of the president of our board of directors.  The man (so called) is an absolute idiot!  PLUS he is pure EVIL!!!!!


I think the guy is Hitler reincarnated!  He sure seems that way!  He is Eastern European from a communist country. He thinks he knows everything, and yet he knows nothing!  I love to make him look like more of an idiot than he really is, which is not easy!  Last night I became infuriated and I stood up and yelled at him --- AND I AM GLAD I DID!   I think the whole board was a bit shocked!  LOL!  I even shocked myself a bit!.

ANYWAY, just wanted to write this down so that I can learn from the experience and move on.  Last night was very stressful for everyone, and most people just allow their stress to remain within themselves, which in my opinion is unhealthy. I believe in getting it out, and saying whatever, to get the stress out.  Keeping stress bottled within oneself can cause serious health problems.  Last night I got the stress out bigtime!  :-)

Thanks for listening!

Hello Journal,

I am just now beginning to write in my own private journal, after having been involved with a community for several months.

Today in Chicago is very lovely; sunny, and expected to be warm.  It's very early yet, only 6:30 a.m.

I'm feeling really great, but a bit concerned for some friends who are, or who never seem to be able to find that elusive inner peace.  I wish everyone well.

Peace and Love,

Eight Verses for Training the Mind [Jun. 13th, 2007|12:47 pm]

Eight Verses for Training the Mind

by Langri Thangpa

With a determination to accomplish
The highest welfare for all sentient beings
Who surpass even a wish-granting jewel
I will learn to hold them supremely dear.

Whenever I associate with others I will learn
To think of myself as the lowest among all
And respectfully hold others to be supreme
From the very depths of my heart.

In all actions I will learn to search into my mind
And as soon as an afflictive emotion arises
Endangering myself and others
Will firmly face and avert it.

I will learn to cherish beings of bad nature
And those oppressed by strong sins and suffering
As if I had found a precious
Treasure very difficult to find.

When others out of jealousy treat me badly
With abuse, slander, and so on,
I will learn to take on all loss,
And offer victory to them.

When one whom I have benefited with great hope
Unreasonably hurts me very badly,
I will learn to view that person
As an excellent spiritual guide.

In short, I will learn to offer to everyone without exception
All help and happiness directly and indirectly
And respectfully take upon myself
All harm and suffering of my mothers.

I will learn to keep all these practices
Undefiled by the stains of the eight worldly conceptions
And by understanding all phenomena as like illusions
Be released from the bondage of attachment.
