Boldly go!


after the storm
stars reflect in lake-
boldly go… inward

Many people think that meditation is a calm and peaceful thing to do. They are right, sort of. Meditation that explores the mind and seeks out the truths that lie beneath the surface is rather difficult and takes years or decades to accomplish. There are many books on this subject but I think that Yongey Mingur Rinpoche’s book “The Joy of Living and the Dalai Lama’s book “The Universe in a Single Atom” do an excellent job in discussing this type of meditation and how to best practice it. So, I will leave it to you, my dear reader, to check out the books from your local library and prepare to seek out your own truths and new realities and to Boldly Go where only “you” can go.

Happy Birthday Leonard Nimoy

I also wrote a haiku earlier this year about him titled
