I heartily recommend a New York Times blog post I came across this morning thanks to a friends post on Facebook.  It is by Pico Iyer and is entitled The Doctor is Within.  It’s an excellent piece talking about the Dalai Lama and Buddhism.  It made me think about why I stopped writing on this blog several months ago.  Perhaps I was trying to change the world and was realizing the futility of such an effort.  Perhaps it was a cognizance that I needed to readjust my thinking before I commenced writing again.  And, perhaps it is appropriate that I began again with different expectations.  Perhaps.
