Show Notes Chapter Markers

An episode of almost 7 mins, and the second in the Wednesday Warmers series inspired by reading Ron Padgett's poem today 'Inaction of Shoes'.

A wonderful, gently humorous poem and quietly profound too.

On doing, being, happening, non-happening, advaita vedanta...and the US election x

  • A little bit at the beginning and end and the poem begins at 2 mins 27 secs


  • 'Inaction of Shoes' by Ron Padgett in 'The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness and Joy' by John Brehm - a beautiful anthology of spiritual poetry. -  

'The Buddha once told a disciple that good spiritual friends are the whole of holy life. The poems expertly gathered here offer all that one might hope for in such spiritual friendship: wisdom, compassion, peacefulness, good humor, and the ability to both absorb and express the deepest human emotions of grief and joy.' - from the back cover .
