Pete Seeger's Banjo
He was the embodiment of
Love in Action for Social Change
Hatred never ceases by hatred,
but by love alone is healed.
This is an ancient and eternal law.
How -to Instructions from Pete Seeger at 93!
Happy Lunar New Year and Ground Hog Day! I hope this finds you well and happy and loving everyone.
This week Pete Seeger died. He was another of my heroes. A humble, kind, courageous and fierce organizer and activist for social justice, human dignity and our planet. A sweet being who touched countless lives. May all whom he touched be beautiful continuations of his wonderful spirit and carry on his work. He practiced so beautifully what Thay teaches. Thay tells us that it is impossible to love your enemies…because once you love them, they are no longer your enemy! That was clearly demonstrated by Pete. I am including a link to a PBS special about his extraordinary life, if you want to be inspired!
In the meantime, we can cultivate all of these qualities and enjoy our community tomorrow evening. We will be gathering Sunday at 6 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of South County on North Rd in Peace Dale. We will have a meditation and Linda Lamont will share about the chapter on "Right Action" from the "Heart of the Buddha's Teaching" We will share the Dharma and recite the Five Mindfulness Trainings. I hope you will be able to be with us.
THERE WILL NOT BE A SECOND SUNDAY GATHERING. Cindy is unable to host us this month…so we will resume that meeting in March.
There will be a gathering at our home on the third Sunday, the 16th…at 6 PM.
