Please Vote

The following is from a series tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

I voted today! And Ireally hope it works. We need the best man. And I like the man with more experience to lead us. Vote please!

We need the President to finish his vision, not change course. The man who has skill abroad. Who cares about “We the People.”

Whoever you vote for, do it. Use your rights as a citizen, let your voice be heard! Many nations have trouble with voting – vote without fear!

I think this debate will bevery important to us all.

Have You Accomplished?

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

It always boggles my mind when some people spend their time putting others down, even if they themselves have accomplished so little. Getting a job, contributing, etc. Could it be these folks are wounded people who basically live off others like vampires?

Before one calls themselved Buddha they should do their own practice and pay their own bills, root out their own poisons. To claim perfection while being cruel and harassing others shows who you really are. And it is not an enlightened being. You don’t get there by wearing pants!

Silly Rabbits! Tricks are for kids.

Celebrating Love

I wish all beings a safe, peaceful holiday, filled with joy and warmth. May every Blessing rain upon you as silver drops of love! May you all walk in beauty and awareness; may you always be mindful of our natural gifts. Stars, Sun, Moon – and share with all! We are keeping our spirits up, though a Christmas in hiding from my stalker that was released a few days ago.

I don’t want to give up on this rebirth, I can still be strong. Fundamentally, I am strong. Just beaten up, and some PTSD. Nothing a secret island wouldn’t cure. My wish is to regain confidence, to feel secure enough to continue in my work. And I want to come home.

All the kindness and support are everything to me now!I will not be put off serving sentient beings with Dharma, food, shelter, love. Nothing has that power. Nothing is stronger than love! Don’t ever believe otherwise. Hate seems strong. But it is a bully. Hate is weak, that’s why it is so loud. Only ugly is behind it. No substance.To all of Palyul – thank you! Tsewei Lama you remain on the Lotus seat of my heart. May Palyul thrive, and may I always be reborn to this sacred noble family!

The America I Loved

The following is from a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

Where did the United States of America go? I mean the one that I loved. The one that stood for something? The “don’t tread on me” place. The America that had services for poor, sick, hungry, homeless. The America that always gave more than others. The one with less hate.

Yeah, that America. It is still there on the map. But where is the land I love? And the people where did the middle class go? Our homes?

Dear sweet America, I miss you. I love you. And will do all I can to help you rise again! Please #OccupyEARTH #OccupyDC #OccupyUSA

Advice from the Heart

From a series of tweets by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo:

It is very important, before one’s death, that we pay back as much karmic debt as possible. And pay forward all gifts. OM AH MI DEWA HRI

When one’s self becomes more important than one’s practice, one has failed. Stop. Go back and do it right. OM BENZAR SATO HUNG

We seem to act as if there were no such thing as cause and effect. That we will never grow old. Or never die. What dream is this?

There is no fear in death if one has prepared well. Wither it comes fast or slow we must prepare. We should die as meditators.

We act as if someone else were responsible for purifying our inner poisons, or purifying our mind streams. It is for ourselves alone to do.

No one can grant us happiness from the outside. Happiness is a habit to be cultivated.
