Finding awareness through movement, I'm committed to changing education for the better. My old blog Rainbowhill Language Lab is still a great place for learning about Japanese language and culture, it's just a little quiet these days.
Reflect deeply upon the certainty and suddenness of our death’s approach and remember that our body is merely an object on loan. If we can gain a deep understanding of these points our mind will definitely change. We shall no longer waste our time and a new meaning and purpose will be given to our life. Otherwise we shall merely be marking time until death comes.
I tell you, friend, that it isn’t possible by traveling to know or see or reach a far end of the cosmos where one doesn’t take birth, age, die, pass away, or reappear. But at the same time, I tell you that there is no making an end of suffering & stress without reaching the end of the cosmos. Yet it is just within this fathom-long body, with its perception & intellect, that I declare that there is the cosmos, the origination of the cosmos, the cessation of the cosmos, and the path of practice leading to the cessation of the cosmos.
It’s said it takes seven years
to grow completely new skin cells.
To think, this year I will grow
into a body you never will have touched.
All too soon, this body will lie on the ground cast off, bereft of consciousness, like a useless scrap of wood.
The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in.
The food we take into our mouth goes into our stomach, where it gets digested and eventually assimilates into the bloodstream. Our blood is what creates our cells, our tissues, our organs, our skin, our hair, our brains and even our thoughts and feelings. We are, at our most basic level, walking food.
