Via Right Wing Watch: Donald Trump: 'Trust Me' To Overturn The 'Shocking' Gay Marriage Decision

In an interview with Pat Robertson’s television network yesterday, Donald Trump insisted that anti-gay conservatives can rest assured knowing that he is committed to overturning the Supreme Court’s landmark decision striking down state bans on same-sex marriage.

When the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody asked the GOP presidential frontrunner what he thought of the Log Cabin Republicans calling him “one of the best, if not the best, pro-gay Republican candidates to ever run for the presidency,” Trump said he hadn’t heard the remarks and criticized the “shocking” and “massive” Obergefell ruling.

I’ve learned to slow down and not move as fast through things as my mind would like me to, but to feel at home in the process. See, the process and product are so interwoven that getting there is half the fun. How you get there is as much of a part of the game as getting there is.

“Precisamos nos abrir para perceber que a espiritualidade é uma ciência que ainda não compreendemos. Chegará o dia em que não haverá mais distinção entre espiritualidade e ciência, mas ainda hoje essa dicotomia, essa separação da dimensão espiritual da vida, é o que tem alimentado tanta ignorância e gerado tanto sofrimento para o ser humano.”

“Necesitamos abrirnos para percibir que la espiritualidad es una ciencia que aún no comprendemos. Llegará el día en que no habrá más distinción entre espiritualidad y ciencia, pero aúnhoy en día esta dicotomía, esta separación de la dimensión espiritual de la vida, es lo que viene alimentando tanta ignorancia y generado tanto sufrimiento para el ser humano.”

“We need to open ourselves up to admitting that spirituality is a science that we still do not fully comprehend. A day will come when there will no longer be a distinction between spirituality and science, but today this dichotomy still exists. Our separation from the spiritual dimension of life has fueled so much ignorance and generated so much suffering for the human being.”

Via Daily Dharma / May 18, 2016: Being Tender with Our Practice

The first rule we should begin with, if we want meditation to be in our life for a long time, is: Don’t make a rigid structure and then chastise ourselves when we don’t live up to it. Better to keep a limber mind and develop a tenderness toward existence.
