So if you think that I am working on holidays stocking stuffers, you are so right. It is a well known fact that puertorricans like holidays and if there isn't one, we are more than happy to make a new one without hesitation. Please enjoy life and the fun of sharing a smile, a smile can change someones life. Without a smile I feel naked, I am actually blushing. Can you believe it?
I have made a commitment that everyday I go out into the world I will pick up at least two pieces of trash and put it in a trash receptacle; needless to say I will never litter consciously . So do your part for the cleanliness of your city and pick up at least one piece of litter a day, if you can. We are part of the environment we are all one "Esho Funi".
Some Buddhists call "esho funi" -- the idea that self and environment are two but not two. Esho funi holds that by changing myself, I simultaneously change my environment. A change can be simultaneous only if there is no separation -- no distance in time or space -- between self and environment. So at the deepest level there is no "internal" and "external" -- it's all the same place, same thing.
Have a great weekend from the shores of Kalifornia.
