This is the downside to freelancing… the up side?
Working less for more! It’s an even swap.

I got the cartoon from here.

I had never heard of Buddy Christ before. I saw this image and decided to do a little research. I’m just enamored with the image for some reason.

Poem

Buddha in Glory

Center of all centers, core of cores,
almond, that closes tightly in and sweetens,–
this entire world out to all the stars
is your fruit-flesh: we greet you.

Look, you feel how nothing any longer
clings to you; your husk is in infinity,
and there the strong juice stands and crowds.
And from outside a radiance assists it,

for high above, your suns in full splendor
have wheeled blazingly around.
Yet already there’s begun inside you
what lasts beyond the suns.

—Ranier Maria Rilke,
translated by Edward Snow from New Poems

Impeccability of My Words

Posted on July 1, 2008 in: Uncategorized by Andrew Birkhead

In the book, The Four Agreements, Miguel Ruiz, outlines four simple agreements that can transform your life. The first of those agreements is to be impeccable with my word. Words are magic. They can do incredible good or incredible harm. They can heal and bless, or maim and cripple.

Gary van Warmerdam at Pathways to Happiness has written a great essay about being impeccable with words. The video is powerful and shows how a group of teens explored the power of words in their lives.
