Meditation: The art of pain, suffering and Joy

Meditation, bringer of suffering, pain and joy, yet regardless of the suffering I am compelled to continue on this journey… Meditation for me has brought a beauty to my existence that has been unmatched by any other experience. Nothing else on earth draws your attention to a simple sunburst captured perfectly in the corner of(…)

P.S. You’re not going to die!

This image popped up on Facebook today and was very much along the lines of a discussion I had with friends this morning. There are much worse problems to face in life than any of the above, something that is worth hanging on to…..I am sure I am not the only person who recognises the(…)
