This card has Jampa’s response to a question/reflection
in the comments section of  the May 21st post:
“the real shift has to come from your own reactions…”


5/25/2012 May your heart always be joyful…may your spirit always be true…. forever young

the body, of course, ages…
impermanence, of course, reigns
but may each one’s heart, mind and spirit
continue to be…
forever young…

“forever young,” to kathy,  represents…
a twinkle in the eye,
a kind, open, flexible, forgiving and loving heart,
a mind that is curious, explores, investigates,
one that discovers and experiences
“forever young….”
“forever true….”

5/10/12 Basically we are all the same human beings… with the same potential to be a good human being…

perhaps, that could be called….
“…plant flowers, pull weeds….”
Becoming  more aware and trying to increase the positive seeds and seedlings within ourselves…
plant flowers
Becoming more aware and trying to reduce the negative seeds and seedlings within ourselves…
pull weeds….
each of us creating our own
“garden of life”
And, as much as we can…
contributing to the positive gardens of others, too…
