Pocket Perspectives Google Images: quick and easy access to many of the Pocket Perspectives “pages/images” (pages are usually “self explanatory.” )
I’ve been making “booklets” and “pages” for many years…..sometimes to work my way through a reaction to a challenging situation….other times to help me to remember some ideas or principles that I want to practice.
I just made one at at time…
slowly, steadily…and they added up to a lot…
you just never know what actions in each moment
might add up to or lead to….
Last night, I opened the weekly email newsletter, Just One Thing, JOT, from Rick Hansen, author of the wonderful book Buddha’s Brain. That newsletter has been so helpful in getting ideas for “shifting” on how I react and interact. Well right there…in front of my very shocked eyes….the eyes of the brain stem-lizard for sure…was a link to “Feelings”, a youtube booklet/video that I recently posted and a link to this blog, Pocket Perspectives….thank you, Rick….
for those of you who are arriving from that JOT newsletter,
I welcome you and hope that you might find some pages or ideas
that might be helpful or of benefit.
I’ve made several “pages” and created several posts based on Rick’s ideas.
Link to post “Plant Flowers, Pull Weeds”
Link to post “Right Now, I’m Alright”
link to youtube video: Brain Reactions: Something Happens
The top banner area of this home page has several “tab” areas:
- “Plant Flowers,” contains many positive perspectives for increasing the positives.
- “Pull Weeds” contains many pages for “pulling weeds” or coping with more challenging reactions.
Another very special blog associated with this one is called, “Reflections from a Friend.” That blog is full of practical, helpful, loving ideas from a very dear friend, Venerable Jampa Choepal, a Buddhist monk who lives at TSL Monastery in Australia. The ideas in that site derive from Buddhism, but are universal, nurturing, usable ideas for everyday life. Ven. Jampa has kindly nurtured me along for several years….and has been so helpful in encouraging me in posting on the 2 blogs.
As I wrote in several of the linked posts, I’ve been to several of Rick Hansen’s workshops at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA. I gained so much benefit from his ideas and a number of pages developed out of his ideas. I tend to be quite shy…but got up the courage to share a few pages over the past months…and one thing led to another…
Here’s one of the first pages that I showed to Rick

I hope some of the ideas in the pages in these blogs and youtube sites
might be of benefit to others
