Today I learned about some recently discovered irregularities in our understanding of the universe’s origins. Check out the update here.
Today I meditated for 20 minutes. A note on meditation posture: I usually sit on a cushion, against a support, with my back straight and my eyes closed. Sometimes I lie down. When I had the honor of spending several weeks at a Buddhist monastery in Nepal 2 years ago, I developed the habit of resting my right hand in my left hand with my thumb-tips touching; Buddhists believe that wisdom is necessary for compassion, so the left hand (representing wisdom) supports the right hand (symbolizing compassion) during meditation.
Today I acted kindly by dropping by my adopted 81-year-old’s house to check up on her.
