You're welcome.

My name's not Jeff. Jeff Bezos is the brain behind Amazon. I quoted him in my signature line because I appreciate what he says.

My name is in my profile. Nice to meet you, I'm Elizabeth in Matsudo City.

The Canadian Embassy just informed Canuck residents in Japan of the two typhoons approaching Japan this week. News reports indicate that the typhoons will likely hit Tokyo head-on, probably on the weekend.

See Japan Meteorological Agency's tropical cyclone information page.

A good blog post on non-attachment in which a Buddhist author reconciles non-attachment with a loving relationship -

Quote:
So then what is non-attachment in a loving, committed relationship? My understanding of attachment is that it’s not about what we have or don’t have, but what our expectations of them are. As unenlightened people, we live with a persistent delusion that people and things will provide us with more happiness and satisfaction than they really can. And this is where we get tripped up.

So for example, how much am I using my partner’s love to fill a void in my own love and acceptance of myself? A truly healthy individual is one who is complete by herself, and doesn’t need to depend on anything or anyone else to feel whole and content. I don’t mean we should go it alone and isolate ourselves from others. I mean simply not to depend on someone or something external to me as a necessary condition for my happiness.


Whole thing here.

We might understand fudoshin if we persevere in martial arts. Fudoshin doesn't originate in martial arts. Shingon Buddhism uses the term, for example. Western philosophical and religious traditions have concepts similar to fudoshin.

Fudoshin is a state of being. It's for every waking moment of your life, training, work, and with the people you love. If you are in a state of fudoshin, you live, fight and love without attachment.

Tetsushin, interesting example. It's tough to maintain fudoshin all the time (i'm not assuming Cruise has or has not achieved it).. And we have to forgive ourselves and others when we lose composure. Errant humanity and all that.
