The Compassion Project

I've had this idea rolling about for some time now. It has been restlessly trying to take form. I've been discussing throughout the pages of this blog for several years about how it was (is) that I fell off the cushion - "Help - I can't get up!"
There are times when we can find ourselves walking in balance. This sense of balance, much like that of the "weebles wobble and they don't fall down" - you fret not when times are rough; you know that, "what goes up, must come down." The cold of winter will one day be transformed into the budding growth of springtime.
But what happens when things seem to turn into a proverbial "ice age." That all you have lived, all that you have learned, "implies a discovery of facts to which he does not know how to adapt himself."

as a matter of fact that ice age will never come. and if it comes, i believe it is the best thing one can have in life. it is a complete balance. what we need more than this? it is bliss. no need to adapt,no change, nothing happening out here..an ocean whose every wave is sorrow. what a great thing it would be!

But no there will again come some happiness and delude our vision and make us conscious and scared about our coming sorrows.

Looking at your other blog...are you thinking that it is starting Lunar New Year? Chinese (Lunar) New Year doesn't start until February 14, curiously, just before Lent (Feb. 17). My question, what is special about Jan. 15? (It's really the last new moon of the year.)

Shubhajit - you are right...whatever comes is what comes... it is always the best thing one can have in life. My point is, the simple fact that all of life is captured in the present moment... our focus on that which exists beyond the present moment lends itself to feelings of loss, imbalance, and the need to always adjust oneself..
Baroness - I purposely chose one month before the Chinese (Lunar) New Year. To set it apart from cultural and possible religious overtones or connections. But as it is a new start; a jumping off point, I wanted to start with the new moon.
Stay tuned - possibly you will join me in the "Compassion Project."
