Buddha’s 4 Noble Truths

Lee Lozowick, a teacher of Red Hawk's said the following about Work on oneself. "Transformation is not a masculine process. The ‘Work’ is not a masculine process.

Meditations of Marcus Aurelius

Betimes in the morning say to thyself: “This day I shalt have to do with an idle curious man, with an unthankful man, a railer, a crafty, false, or an envious man; an unsociable uncharitable man. “All these ill qualities have happened unto them, through ignorance of that which is truly good and truly bad.

People flock around the poet, saying, "do...
