Everything is affected by and is part of
everything else, changing constantly
from one state to another.
The rain becomes the river;
the river surrenders to the sea
and the cycle begins over again.
Nothing is ever lost.
The melody changes –
the dance goes on.
kaleidoscopic reverie……a moment in time, just one….when we see our whole life in a tiny tear, catching the light and opening the heart…..a rare instance of embodied knowing…..our own irrevocable truth…..
If humanity is to survive – and not only that, to flourish—we must be brave enough to find our wisdom and let it shine.
We uncover it by beginning to examine our assumptions. We may never before have considered human nature, but in order to move forward as a global community, it is vital that we do it now. Is it really our nature to be fearful and aggressive, or could it be that we are actually gentle and fearless at heart?
Underneath the stress and anxiety, is it possible there is peace?
If our self-reflection turns up an inkling of that, we can draw power from it, daring to shift our destiny. In this way, the Shambhala principle is a socially transformative process through which confusion about human nature becomes confidence in human worthiness….Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
The deepest secret is that life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation. You are not discovering yourself, but creating yourself anew. Seek therefore, not to find out Who You Are, but seek to determine Who You Want to Be……..Neale Donald Walsch
