Lions Roar : May 2014
god is a synonym for ultimate reality. Self- less love begins with two chapters on why and how to meditate, and Birx, who has a Ph.D. in psychiatric nursing, informs this material with her solid knowledge of cognitive science. But she is clear about her personal motivation, which is spiri- tual. Meditation, as she sees it, is a kind of prayer, and its purpose is to let go of all concepts and experience unbounded awareness. When we have this direct expe- rience of no-self, we can express our own unique gifts without being self-centered. As Birx puts it, “you and god are not two separate realities. god loves. you love. god’s love and your love are one reality.” DaiLy DOses OF wisDOM a year of Buddhist inspiration Edited by Josh Bartok Wisdom Publications 2013; 438 pp., $16.95 (paper) From the editor of Daily Wisdom comes Daily Doses of Wisdom, a new collection of 365 contemplative quotes, plus nine longer selections. Contributors include the poet Jane Hirshfield, the psychoana- lyst and Zen teacher Barry Magid, and the Buddhist ecologist Stephanie kaza, as well as the Dalai Lama, Mahatma gandhi, Dogen, and the Buddha. From kindness to koans, fairness to freedom, a broad range of topics are explored. “Use your own problems to remember that others have problems too,” said by kathleen McDon- ald, is one of the pithier quotes that I enjoyed. Another is Issa’s classic haiku: “The world of dew/Is the world of dew./ And yet, and yet...” Bartok, who is head teacher at the greater Boston Zen Cen- ter, suggests reading one quote each day upon waking up or before going to sleep or meditating. But he also points out that there is no wrong time for the dharma, which is, as the Buddha put it, “good in the beginning, good in the middle, and good in the end.” JeT BLaCk anD The ninJa winD By Leza Lowitz and Shogo Oketani Tuttle 2013; 320 pp., $17.99 (cloth) growing up in New Mexico, Jet has a secret.
