I Am Absolutely Blown Away By ...

Jan 21, 2012, 1 comments, 6 smiles I am absolutely blown away by the recent Forest Feeds. ...And in total awe of the recent innovative movement of ServiceSpace: forest feeds, forest calls, growing number of wed. meditation around the globe, and what's this KarmaBucks??? :-)   All this in addition to the good stuff that's been here -- CF mom, dailygood, iJourney, and much more! THANK YOU to the (as Pancho would say) ONE-derful team of tigers that serve behind-the-spaces.  

Occupy Self

Nov 22, 2011, 2 comments Last month, when ServiecSpace landed in Memphis, Pancho and Nipun joked about PhD's versus PhDo's, as I debated heading into a PhD program.  After much back and forth, I opted to drop my PhD plans.  I didn't want to return to an imbalance between external ambition and inner development, which often comes when I am part of a very structured and one dimensional effort. I also didn't want to chase illusions of growth, e.g. one more degree will not make me a better person. Also, I didn't want to continue separating myself from others who have less ... and would never use GRE vocabulary in their life.  Instead I want to Occupy Self, with a self-customized outer learning and inner growth program.  Here are the main pillars, with pending actions, but ServiceSpace features prominently in "pushing the envelope of compassion and empathy." 

Three Comics At Magnolia Grove Monastery

Nov 22, 2011 During a recent visit to Magnolia Grove Monastery, I especially enjoyed seeing these "Dharma Comics" on the wall -- done by teenage volunteer!
