My Bardo Group Honor

Vulnerabilty is Vulnerability quote.web

Jamie Dedes invited me if she could post one of my posts for the Bardo Group.

The one she selected for posting on this prestigious blog is

We Cultivate Love

It’s been an honor for me to have been asked to be a tiny part of this very distinguished blog.
I can not thank Jamie Dedes and the staff of the Bardo Group enough for giving me this honor and opportunity.

If you aren’t a blog follower of the Bardo Group, you must be scratching your head and asking

What is a Bardo Group?
Their answer to your question is:

THE BARDO GROUP, a compendium of works from diverse and visionary creatives. Our goal is to foster proximity and understanding through our shared love of the arts and humanities and all things spirited and to make – however modestly – a contribution toward personal healing and deference for the diverse ways people seek comfort and understanding.

What does the name Bardo mean?
Their answer to your question is:

“Bardo” is a Tibetan Buddhist term referring to that place after physical death where some believe our souls travel between material manifestations. It might be likened by some (Brother David Steindle-Rast, for one) to the Christian purgatory. Chögyam Trungpa Rinchoche has written of it as the “in between, like a flowing river which belongs neither to this shore nor the other. In other words: it is the present experience, the immediate experience of now.”
The expression “into the bardo,” was the original name selected because the founder and host of this site and the two people who were first invited to participate here were living with life-threatening illness. One of us, poet Ann Emerson, flew away in April 2013. The other two live, as everyone does, on the edge of eternity.

I thought it would be best to write their description of their blog as it is written iand explained n great detail. If you’d like to know more about the Bardo Group, I’d hope you’ll go over and review this very inspiring and talented group of writers.
