About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Sun 1st Oct. Last talk by Sumedho till next year! Fancy Coming?

Last chance to see Sumedho: do a Sunday talk: at Amaravati till next year!
I think a bunch of us are going. He's VERY cool. You have to be there to 'get it'. Its a very 'experiential' (as opposed to intellectual) learning experience. He's a very advanced human being. Not sure if he is enlightened as such, but he's gone a VERY long way. I only say that because I've been in the presence of more amazing teachers than him, but who knows? I'm not exactly an expert on these things!!! Basically I have no clue! But (for me) he is outdone by the likes of the Dalai Lama:, and other Senior Lamas and of course Thich Nhat Hanh: who I see as being very special. A jewel.
But he is a fine teacher, and you will earn something that goes FAR beyond words. Please go, as it will be a lot of fun. Hopefully!
I haven't been up there for ages, but even I fancy a trip up there for old times sake!
We can all meet at Euston and share a cab on the way up. See you there!
