Re: Hair Cutting Days

I use a calendar I bought online because I like the pictures.
I stopped being a pretend Tibetan about the same time that I reverted to my birth name.
Its all just more stuff to clear away.

Re: Hair Cutting Days

I was thinking of having a trim tomorrow, but I don't want eye pain..no siree.

:( Scissors in the eye presumably.

Re: claim about Fifth Dalai Lama

I'm not sure that seeking punishments by divine means..whatever that means.. is much better.

Re: Football World Cup.

I thought there were glimpses today of what Brazil could be. Hopefully, that will happen during this present tournament.

Re: Football World Cup.

As the parent of an aspiring footballer, we are all football mad in this house watching every match. While the Oranje are my team generally, with them out I am really happy to see Belgium firing on all cylinders. Hazard and Lukaku are in phenomenal form. Could this be the year they make the final? ...

Re: Hair Cutting Days

My hair cutting days follow closely an auspicious alignment between the car being available for a short trip to the next town and the Turkish guys that run it opening the shop. Subtle cosmic vibes also result in a free coffee and, when I pay, a piece of Turkish Delight on a toothpick. Om to all that...

Re: Accept, respect, love, gone

How would a description of those experiences, out of a context of a relationship with a teacher and out of particular Buddhist meditative disciplines help you?

Re: Football World Cup.

Pretty sure Argentina won't advance. Talk about failure. Yeah, one loss and one draw for Argentina; it's not looking good for them. Lionel Messi has 5 Golden ball awards, an Olympic Gold medal, over 600 goals in world-class competitions, just about every kind of Football award one can get . . . exc...

And that's how it finished 1-1. So the Socceroos live to fight another day. :smile:

Re: Football World Cup.

Us Aussies are hoping for a miracle against Denmark tonight, as that it what it will take. Meanwhile, I was amused by this Slate article on the demise of Morocco and their ‘comically good-looking’ coach, Herve Renard. ‘A jawline like a yacht’. :smile: Well 30 minutes in the Socceroos are one down, ...

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

I'm sure if we looked long enough we could find someone with nothing but good to say about Michael Roach too. Barry was part of the largest Rajneesh/Osho commune in the UK. Through Barry, I met a number of them. All but one have nothing good to say about Rajneesh. And the one is ambivalent at best. ...

Re: Football World Cup.

I'm getting into it, despite never growing up in the whole soccer/football culture growing up in the US. We cheered for Mexico, that win against Germany was awesome. My Scottish husband said the Germans are a bunch of mid-field playing douchebags, whereas Mexico played with a lot more zest. His gam...

Re: "Wild Wild Country" - Osho documentary on Netflix

Salmonella poisoning can kill you. I am sure Osho knew about the plot. I think Sheela is a scapegoat. A complicit wacko of the nth degree, granted, but a scapegoat too. Thats certainly the way my friend saw it. Also scapegoated were a group of other women..ALL of them women. (The whole Rajneesh set...

Re: Sarlo's Guru Rating Service

Don't take it too seriously. There is a lot of work behind it, I am sure. The sheer number of the gurus is stunning. Hundreds of them, whom I have never heard of, or maybe even close to one thousand. There is a message in their number, and in the attitude and treatment of them. You could never do t...
