Happy Summer Solstice!

We are blown to our next experience by the winds of our karma

“When the winds of karma blow…
we have no freedom to remain, and no choice about where to go…
We must go wherever our karma takes us,” and experience whatever awaits us.

    See? ‘Karma’ means ‘no choice’! That lady didn’t choose for her brolly to break, did she?!
    The ‘winds of her karma blew’ her to that experience.

    The sun is out, the sky is blue—-black clouds are rolling over to put the spoilers on it. I have`nt put my winter woolies away yet.

      No, I haven’t either. (Mind you, the heating’s still on coz the flat’s so draughty!)
      It’s a good one to contemplate tho. Geshe Kelsang uses the black clouds in a blue sky analogy to show how our minds (sky) are big enough to allow negative minds (clouds) to pass through them, without needing to disturb us further.
