Sunday, April 29, 2012 - The Tendency to Compare

Hi everyone,

A couple of announcements first: 1) This is the last weekend to buy tickets for the church's bazaar. If you would like to buy a chicken teriyaki dinner for the May 6 event, this is the time. See details below.  2) Monthly yoga was offered last week (just in case you missed it), so although it is usually the last Sunday of the month, there will not be yoga this weekend.

As for the topic: this Sunday we will be discussing the tendency we often have to compare. This is often very closely connected to our sense of identity, and how this identity interacts and relates with the world. So, I'll pick up where we left off last week with the teaching of self/not-self in Buddhism, and then we'll get into the particulars of how this plays out in what is sometimes called, 'the comparing mind'. This is the second of the series of four talks on self and identity in our lives.

May you have a good end of the week, and I hope to see you Sunday evening,

May 6 Meeting Moved to Island Yoga, 911 Central Ave.

Our hosts, the Buena Vista United Methodist Church, will have their annual fund raiser on May 6. An afternoon of music, companionship is offered, along with box dinners for $10. Because the cleaning up after then event may not be complete we will be meeting that evening, at our regular time of 7pm at Island Yoga, at 911 Central Ave.
