Turns Out I Have Cancer

As I sit through my rounds of chemo and wait for a needle-in-a-haystack live-saving stem cell donor to be found, I’ve decided that this is the time to get serious about my Buddhist practice. Over on Medium, I write in more depth about how I draw on my Buddhist practice to address my battle with cancer.

    New here, and I do not mean to pry. I just read about your cancer. There is hope, and there are cures. I just wanted you to know that. It may be a hard road where you are at, or maybe not but cannabis oil cures cancer. I know. When you’re feeling up to it, take a look at some of the testimonial videos. http://www.cureyourowncancer.org

    Take care of yourself and looking forward to having a look around.

    Get well soon. I had once get a very bad cough once and i had rely on medicine buddha mantra to relieved my pain until i figure out that lemon drinks of aunt petunia can solve my cough. Which i believe is medicine buddha who came all the way to get me the suitable medicine of common foods. No doubt, kind internet people who wrote about lemon drinks also helped me. The next big one happen last few years back where i would wake up in the middle if night suddenly and cough till i thought i could die from it. This gone quite swiftly after i bought a medicine buddha amulet and keep it near my room. Today i am a bit sick again with a bit flu, fever, cough and so on. But i know it will turn out right. So i hope you will get well soon too

    I probably would have save myself from today small illness if i could get myself comitted to recite medicine buddha mantra daily. So i do suppose i am quite lazy in my practise.

    And i have become fan of tara over the years. So its possible my illness all manifest together at a time as tara help ripen karma at early stage.

    Hi. I was just looking at your blog, after a long hiatus. I’m so sorry to hear you are sick with cancer. I just checked to see if I am eligible to be a stem cell donor. Looks like I am all but out of range at fifty-eight. I hope you find someone. May your practice flourish.
