Music for the uninitiated

Download, loop, enjoy :) (PLAY IT LOUD!) - Symphony No. 9 in D minor, op125 Presto-Allegro assai (movements 2 and 3).mp3

Perhaps more to come. Happy Easter as well. A time of 'rebirth' for us all; especially as it coincides with the first day of Spring. We have all survived the gloom and gray; onward, onward! But never without reflection, pause, and perspective.

Six virtues: Generosity, An Ethical way of Life, Patience, Joyful Effort, Concentration, Wisdom.

Today we can observe the generosity of the world, both in us and toward us. The generosity of God (John 3:16) and Christ according to the Bible. The generosity of Mother Nature for bringing back the sun and flowers (for us in the Northern Hemisphere). Of course the generosity of our own Fathers and Mothers (for whom God and Nature may only be faultless symbols) for bringing us into the world in the first place.

Thank you!

Hoping everyone has a wonderful day and beyond.

"The generosity of the world, both in us and toward us" well said. I am taking today as a day of reflection.

Sounds like great virtues for us all to work towards, oh virtuously humble one. :-)

Isn't it the case that Buddhists can celebrate all holidays? That's kinda cool.
