Back from absence….

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday period

–Br Benjamin

In the Name of the Living Gods, I Purify my

hands in righteousness and my lips in faith. Let them utter the speech of Light and make my ablutions effective by thoughts of Light.


A Taoist story tells of an old man who accidentally fell into the river rapids leading to a high and dangerous waterfall. Onlookers feared for his life. Miraculously, he came out alive and unharmed downstream at the bottom of the falls. People asked him how he managed to survive.

“I accommodated myself to the water, not the water to me. Without thinking, I allowed myself to be shaped by it. Plunging into the swirl, I came out with the swirl. This is how I survived.”
