Readings from June 25th Sangha lead by Jen Curry

As a Woman Thinketh    

James Allen's Classic As A Man Thinketh Transcribed for Women by Dorothy J. Hulst

Mind is the Master-power that moulds and makes,
And Woman is Mind, and evermore she takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what she wills,
Brings forth a thousnad joys, a thousand ills:--
She thinks in secret and it come to pass:
Environment is but  her looking-glass.

She and her is inclusive of male gender. She has he in it and her has he in it. Not to offend anyone wanted to explain that instead of writing he/she   he/she seem repetitive.

The next reading came from , The Teaching of Zen Master Seung Sahn, Dropping Ashes on the Buddha that Dr Bill Pfaff generously sent me, Thank You I read the introduction. The whole book has wonderful Zen Stories and pith instructions. 

Brief  of intro I read;  What is Buddha-nature?      
                                      Deep in the mountains, the great temple bell is struck.
                                      The truth is just like this.

The last reading came from: Tricycle Daily Newsletter  

Enjoy All, Kept Everyone in our circle and sent Naomi more healing energy.  Namaste Jen Curry
