R.I.P. The Death and Revival of Kitabu Roshi…A  Present  from God

R.I.P. The Death and Revival of Kitabu Roshi…A Present from God

December 27, 2014 by · 0 

We cannot cause ourselves to be born, nor can we resurrect ourselves after death. Still, there is a power beyond us who can work a miracle as a matter of course. Most of my life I was drawn to the seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas, to the rich aromas of home-cooked foods, and the promise of the circle of love provided by family and friends. There was no Thanksgiving for me this year, and almost... Read more

CHRIST MASS: Remember The Real Spirit of The Season

December 15, 2013 by · 0 

This is a season of multi-colored lights, of one horse sleighs, a time when rotund Santas listen as excited children recite the lists of what they want for Christmas. It is a magic time when snowmen like Frosty, come to life to our delight. The air is filled with music about coming come for this wondrous Holiday. Much of the celebration has little to do with the first Christmas. Today Christmas... Read more

Nelson Mandela…”Dancing to No-Music.”

December 14, 2013 by · 0 

From the beginning to the end Nelson Mandela kept dancing. Now he dances along "Glory" road. Struggle...battles can be fought at many levels. Each level of struggle is important to the psyche of a "warrior." A warrior may not be the traditional combatant. He or she may engage the enemy in other meaningful ways. I grew up in an America in transition. It was in transition because the African-American... Read more

Mother-Love:The Healing Power of a Gentle Voice and a Tender Embrace

December 11, 2013 by · 0 

The divine nature of love may seem to be a feminine power but the expression of it must transcend gender. In our youth we have witnessed cool detachment, diminished respect for elders and authorities, and a studied interest in violence, often played out as fantasy but too often expressed in real blood. While this is not an indictment of all youth, even a few of them who fall prey to violent... Read more

Giving thanks for this is easy ...but what if there were more to Thanksgiving. The article below was written in 2013, a year before last Thanksgiving. Last year I was in a coma during that celebration. At the end of the article there is an audio homily I gave recently on the subject, "Giving Thanks." It is easy to give thanks when all is well. It is divine to give praise and thanks in the midst... Read more

Suffering Souls in the Phillipines: A Typhoon Strikes

There is not a single day that goes by that I do not come in contact with the Philippines. More accurately I have warm interaction with both Philippine-Americans and those vying for citizenship. As long as I can remember I have enjoyed a loving relationship with these my brothers and sisters. There was never anything forced. There was an effortless spiritual connection bringing about smiles and... Read more

Ellen Okaree Byrd: “A Woman was born today.”

November 2, 2013 by · 0 

When a close friend or other loves ones die it is not a time to be stoic. It is a time to remember them and express your true feelings. That is a good thing. The year 1975 was truly unforgettable for me for two different reasons. It marked the publication of my first book, a collection of poems entitled, Kung Fu:The Master: The Book of Kitabu,, a book which catapulted me not only onto the literary... Read more

A VISHWA DHARMA ZEN LESSON: Zen Mind is not just for Buddhist

This depiction of Roshi Kitabu Turner was featured in EnlightenmentNext magazine. It was the centerfold of the issue. There was a time, an eternity ago, when my quest to embrace The Way was a secret quest. I was alone in my experimentation, aware only that I was being guided to step into the unknown with certainty. Since no one knew what I was doing there was no one to criticize my approach.... Read more
