Winter Solstice
Letter of Encouragement from Brother ChiSing
December 21, 2010

Dear mindful friends,

I want to encourage you to make a 2-year commitment to the Path of Enlightenment STARTING TODAY, culminating on 12-21-12, and extending beyond that for the rest of your life and lifetimes. Commit yourself to honoring the Buddha and all Enlightened Teachers. Commit yourself to meditation, spiritual study and mindful living every day. Commit yourself to supporting the Sangha, monks and nuns, Awakening Heart / Dallas Meditation Center, and all your fellow practitioners.

The Universe is calling your name today. Will you respond? Will you answer yes?

For those of you who are serious practitioners, I want to encourage you to purchase and begin reading Thich Nhat Hanh's "OLD PATH, WHTE CLOUDS." I am going to start re-reading this wonderful Dharma book for the 4th or 5th time, starting today, in honor of the Winter Solstice and my renewed commitment for the next 2 years on the Path of Enlightenment, in solidarity with you and all the people in the Dallas area. This will be our guide book for this Winter season. So, please purchase a copy this week and begin reading it, a little bit every day. If you just read one chapter a day, you can finish it by Spring Equinox.

If you missed any of our past 7-week series on "The ZEN of Success," please click here to listen online.

Below are links to some letters of encouragement from past postings. Read and re-read them to inspire your daily meditation practice and mindful living every day.

(Divine Gratitude to the INFINITE LIGHT of Our Awakening)
