Welcome!

I, God, welcome you to my blog!

The good book says only God is good, so it seems to me somebody needs to step up.

I hope you enjoy reading this, the Jesse Journal, as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

F.Y.I. There are about 1000 posts..

Here's a quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky to start things off right: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.

from the Shambhala Sun

The good and bad in a nutshell:
two quotes from this month's Shambhala Sun-

(Shambhala means 'enlightened society')

from the article by Dzongsar Jamyong Khyentse:
1) "For a dharma practitioner, wealth is not gold, silver, or a healthy bank account; wealth is contentment -the feeling that you have enough and need nothing more."

2)"The masters of the past suggest we should constantly remind ourselves about: the imminence of death; the futility of our worldly activities; and the worst news of all, that there is no end to samsara's sufferings.   Just look around you, and you will see the world never ceases to churn out more and more of the same thing, and that the result is unremitting pain and unbearable suffering."
