What's your form of begging? Sometimes it can be as simple as saying, "Hey, I just need some time to myself."

No New Posts The Vow of Poverty

These days, a vow of poverty is for many of us an obligatory life style, what with the economy and so on. But being impoverished comes in many forms. We can find ourselves, at times, weak of heart and mind. It's okay, we've all been there. Test drive the concept here.

The Influences - Past, Present and The Beyond

No New Posts Taoism, Buddhism and more

The sages of ancient times shared a lot of wisdom that is still highly relevant. Native American, Sufism, Hindu, Islam, Christianity, Judaism... this is where we compare notes.

No New Posts My Influences are Different Than Yours

There's a lot of ways to get somewhere, not just one. We are open-minded and inclusive here - except on the days when we slip up and forget our manners. Influences of any type go here: philosophy, science fiction, communing with nature, or a great cup of tea... it's all good.

No New Posts Dudeism

Dudeism is a modern day incarnation of the Taoist philosophy, but with an element of 'The Dude' from the film 'The Big Lebowski' sprinkled in. It's humor and seriousness, all jumbled together - with the Magic 8-Ball as a backup. Why get so uptight? Relax, man. Take it easy.

No New Posts Haiku, Poetry & Verse

Sometimes a simple, three-line poem can contain worlds. It can clarify your mind to write that way. Of course, there's always Haikoan, our newly invented Haiku-Koan, closely related to the Low-Cone. Be expressive. Any form of verse is welcome here.

No New Posts Tales along the Path

Hiking down the trail into the unknown, seeking the Nothingness or calmness within, is an experience that needs to be better known. Some people talk about an 'inner path'. It needs to be a highway. So, circle back around to the trailhead, sit around the campfire, and tell us what you've learned. We gotta make this easier.

The Dojo - The Warrior Monk & Warrior Nun

Board Threads Posts Last Post
No New Posts The Art of Self Defense

The monastery's dojo is not a martial arts studio with mats and people throwing each other. But, in a sense, it is a real-life mat - to help us deal with the 'throws, pins, locks, falls and attacks' that come at us in our everyday relationships and life. We talk about defending against everyday situations here. This is 'Everyday Jiu Jitsu.'

No New Posts The Way of the Warrior

The warrior path is one of equality, both men and women are on a level playing field. Warriors seek to achieve 'mushin' - the ability to be calm in the face of adversity, like the calm, clear eye of the hurricane. It's a stillness of the mind and heart. We discuss the way of the warrior and share experiences here.
