Precious Posts Remembered – Your Help Requested

Something precious
Something precious

Out on a beach or walking a path we pick up something that catches our eye. I’ve a pine cone on my altar which I picked up beside the river Dee in Scotland last year when out for a walk there. One of these fine days I will take it off for a walk and leave it beside a path.

It has been eight years since I started writing regularly here. Much water has passed under the bridge since then and very many posts have passed down the page. Now in a few days I’ll be taking a couple of week to sit still and reflect on these past years and contemplate what might be ahead. It will be a time for looking within and a time of reflection. In the next few days I will be working on pre publishing posts which will appear each day at 4.00 p.m. GMT. I’d like to invite you to help suggest posts from the past that are worthy to be republished. I’ll be going through old posts as a lead into retreat reflections.

Do you recall a posts which had particular significant to you? Memorable ones which perhaps helped you to see and understand something at greater depth. Or a photograph you simply love to bits which says it all with no, or few, words? Like shells on the beach, stones on the path the posts can be picked up, appreciated anew and then set aside. If you have something to say about the post(s) you choose, then let me know that too. If you left a comment to the post I will republish that as well.

  1. Well, there’s the Buddha Hall in Singapore designed by architect Lee Coo, though in part that’s because I know it. It serves also to remember Iain who with his wife was your Japan guide on that SE Asian trip.

  2. Ah yes. How well I remember the trip to see the Buddha Hall – or the building housing the Buddha Hall – with Mr Lee Coo. First at a distance from the top of an apartment building then to the building itself to take a look see inside.


    This post comes to mind for some reason.
    I find this image of something growing in the dark – naturally and beyond our control – both optimistic and encouraging. To take ordinary things and situations and express something profound (with both humour and humility) seems to me to be very precious indeed.

  4. Thanks so much Miles. I will publish that article as you suggest. Have to say I blush reading old posts – I think it is the writing style which hopefully has improved over the years. Anyway the messages is basically OK.

  5. As a Buddhist, just keep your mind at present or mindfulness whenever and in whatever you’re engaging. Then there’s no time at all to contemplate your past or anticipate the future. Thanks for a good photo.
