Relief Nowhere in sight?

“Practice patience; it is the essence of praise. Have patience, for that is true worship. No other worship is worth as much. Have patience; patience is the key to all relief.”


“When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of distress and anxiety.

If I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, without pain.

From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me.

There is a great secret in this for anyone who can grasp it.”


Think again …

While not as beautiful to our ears as an ancient Persian poem, there’s the Japanese short terse proverb – “Even on a stone, sit on it for 3 years” – Who sits on a stone for 3 years anyway – really, who does that? (actually Yogis do!)

It means even a stone, natually cold, after sitting on it for 3 years will be warm … patience, it preaches in a short terse – is such a virtue we must cultivate – I’m just ‘SAYING’.

“Patience is not sitting and waiting, it is FORESEEING.It is looking at the thorn and seeing the rose, looking at the night and seeing the day.Lovers are patient and know that the moon needs time to become full.”

My favorite places

Bakery first 6 shots – guess which one? Ginza Kimuraya:)

Last 6 shots from snacks we had on Shinkansen aka bullet train returning to Tokyo from Kyoto.

What a short trip to Kyoto, an ancient city embedded with temples and shrines we could spend days weeks months and if not, years, and it would still be not enough. But a special endearing person – the reason for our trip awaits in Tokyo. Wish she could travel with us. Wish we took these trips when we were all well.
