Sunday Lunch Break

November 22, 2009

Always without desire we must be found,
If its deep mystery we would sound;
But if desire always within us be,
Its outer fringe is all that we shall see.

Under these two aspects, it is really the same; but as development
takes place, it receives the different names. Together we call them
the Mystery. Where the Mystery is the deepest is the gate of all that
is subtle and wonderful.

From the Tao Te Ching.

    Pardon? Is that something you talked with David about? If so, I’m afraid I don’t know what you’re talking about 😀 David doesn’t have a lot of time now due to restoration weekend, which is why I take care of the lunch break posts, etc. right now.

    Update: uh, lol, I get it. Heh. I’m a bit slow sometimes. Especially on Sundays 😉 In any case, don’t worry about it: Paul will publish it, I’m sure.

    Since my Sunday paper is such a joke anymore, I need my Sunday Cooper!

      I’m at the Charlotte, North Carolina airport on layover en route back home. It appears that Paul is working on something right now…

      I desire Cooper’s writing on Sunday morn
      Else I’m stuck with my newspaper feeling forlorn
      He skewers how the fringe distorts spirituality
      And I can face the day with a sense of reality

      How ‘dat?

    @ Forsmark

    Mary is right…leave Michael and his peaceful, loving side alone.
    Yet again Michael…lovely for so many reasons!
