My Compass Life is a journey. Watching this virtual trip to Antartica made me reflect on the past month. It has been a long tough several weeks. I am thankful to have the Teaching as my life compass. Living each moment, I am at peace inside, whether it is a sunny or a stormy day outside. In the sea of life, both the sadness and happiness are temporary and fleeting. Without the Teaching, we would be unable to transcend this Karmic existence.
There are a myriad of means to facilitate the study and practice of the Dharma. It is vital to not be caught in the whirlwind of the concrete words and the varied conveyance methods. It is critical to not let the concrete agent distract from the transmission of The Teaching.--ZenMoon
