Observations on returning to Philly/Facebook/etc. after a week in a Buddhist monastery

 
 
Oh my god, people are fucking crazy....
 
Breathe...
 
Breathe...
 
Breathe...
 
(That's about it, for now).

Yup.

Often but not always...one of the problems of the "sentient mind". :) Hope you are well and calmly thriving.

Agreed, a common inner monologue for me.

Hi, thought I'd just drop by. I love this post and know exactly about "yes, this world is crazy" isn't? I'm hoping that all the "winds of turmoil" will soon evolve into a "calm after the storm"..it's been a long time coming but I just feel it. We're slowly "breaking on through to the other side". Sigh, yes "just breath"..in and out slowly, in and out"..Love and Blessings, Rhi
