The wheel turns…..

So times change and we must change with them. You need not compromise your beliefs to adjust to change, you are just fine as you are. We simply must first observe change and apply our unique perspective to the circumstance. Then it is our human duty to adjust in a way that best benefits humanity and improves the human condition. In Zen, that process is called the “Turning of the Dharma Wheel.” I find that process fascinating and natural.

So two weeks ago I had a procedure called a radio frequency ablation to treat my damaged spinal column. The unthinkable happened and a nerve got nicked which controls my right leg. Suddenly, I had almost zero balance and was dragging my right foot(my left leg already has a brace) I literally had not a leg to stand on..

The technician who made the carbon fiber braces asked me if I planned to take any action against the doctor…I told him I was much too focused on getting better to bother with attorneys. The easy way (looking for someone to blame) is not the humanistic solution. The wheel turns and will turn again…and again.
Peace & Love,
bob

About bob sendling

I began my study of meditation and mindfulness seven years ago after a disabling accident. My recovery was being hindered by the animosity I held deeply. I was obsessed by the idea of getting even with those who put me in harm's way, changing the future course of my life dramatically. I first studied privately with a skilled therapist who was a Zen Master. He exposed me to the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. I still follow those principals in my daily life. I have also studied at A Zen Temple in a group setting and faithfully continue my practice and study. I now teach meditation and mindfulness and maintain this website dedicated to spreading peace and love to a mindful community of spiritual people.
