Listening to: nothing

Last night I typed up a post about my battle with myself. I didn't publish it 'cos I wasn't sure if I could handle the "are you ok?" comments that would probably follow...I chose to sleep on it and decide today.

Today I felt an urge to pick up a book that's been lying untouched on my bookshelf for years - "Settling back into the moment: A meditator's inspirational guide" by Joseph Goldstein (you can find a pdf of the book here). While reading that, I thought I should check youtube for videos of Ajahn Brahmavamso - I've always wanted to take a proper look but never got round to it, until today. What immediately caught my eye was this - his talk on loneliness. It's almost an hour long, but well worth the time if you can spare it.

The talk provided many moments of revelation for me. I think now, I know what I need to do. Publishing last night's post is not one of them.


  1. Ajahn Brahm is amazing. I didnt know you were interested or id have referred you to the BSWA and his twitter :) (yes he tweets)A brilliant speaker and so funny. I was lucky enough to see him in person when he visited Sri Lanka the past couple of years.


Speak now, or forever hold your peace (well not really)!
