This category was a request from Matilda’s brother, Kes. He feels a bit frightened when he is outside. He barks ferociously and tries to scare other dogs. This is his space to explore peace, compassion, and standing firm in his own being.
Kes is reading Jack Kornfield (Bringing Home the Dharma, 2011), and wants to believe that if he could become very spiritually mature, it would allow him to move like bamboo in the wind, and to respond to the world with his heart and to take in the changing circumstances around him. Kes has interpreted this in his own way. You can see Kes changing in this way, but resisting it as well. People are like this as well, and Kes wants everyone to get along.
