your feeble teacher of no-thing…
still all-Ways challenging ilg’s paltry limits in the most unique, wholistic, lunatic fringe ways…
that is what ilg loves most about the Wholistic Fitness® lifestyle:
it keeps life interesting
and the chi elevating!

my notes from Naropa (A Buddhist Contemplative University which ilg attended after defaulting from Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology at CU…) and thus met my Rinpoche (Trungpa) and was Blessed by His Darshan while buildering on the University Walls one Precious Evening in Boulder…. Om So Ti!

So many veils and illusions separate us from the stark knowledge that we are dying. When we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heartbreaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings.

Sir Thomas More, I heard, wrote these words just before his beheading: “We are all in the same cart, going to execution; how can I hate anyone or wish anyone harm?” To feel the full force of your mortality, and to open your heart entirely to it, is to allow to grow in you that all-encompassing, fearless compassion that fuels the lives of all those who wish truly to be of help to others.
