Bon Dieu

I woke up yesterday morning singing the song, Dominique (Dominique) , which you may remember was originally a French song, by the Belgian Singing Nun, Soeur Sourire, but I was singing the English version: “Never asking for reward He just talks about the Lord He just talks about the Lord” I knew that it was time…

Australia Day

I’m not sure what to celebrate about being Australian.  I know there are a lot of things we can be grateful for. One is that we are girt by sea.  As well as providing miles of beautiful beaches, it keeps any potential enemies at a disadvantage. Yet more and more people are becoming concerned, not…

Mother Mary

I watched a National Geographic program yesterday entitled Explorer: The Cult of Mary. The program was about people who had travelled to Medjugorje in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where six visionaries had seen an apparition of Mother Mary regularly since 1981.

Requite Evil With Good

Love your enemies – Kris10 Cartoons “Those who are good the sage treats with goodness. Those who are bad he also treats with goodness because the nature of his being is good.”  (Tao Te Ching) “…Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Christian Bible – Matthew 5:44) “Revere your enemies as you…

When the Tao Is Lost

The quote for May 30 from the Tao Te Ching, in Dr Wayne Dyer’s perpetual calendar: Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life, is this: When the Tao is lost, there is goodness. When goodness is lost, there is morality. When morality is lost, there is ritual. Ritual is the husk of true faith, the…
