where truth hides

The whole of spiritual life is to meet our edges and soften.

  ~Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

may we contain ourselves and then jump out like a jack-in-the-box……eating up life as wild and alive as we can be…..

Vulnerability is unbearable, yet it is the only redemption there is. It is the truest source of strength I have found. For we are all fragile, delicate, feebly pretending we are not. We get lost along the way because we are not willing to follow the signs. Some never even notice them. The rushes of adrenaline, the fuzzy headed tingle of shared thought, the energy that moves between bodies heavenly or not, the ache in the gut-pit. The moments of recognition, precognition, superstition, that create volition. The signs are there. The dreamlike path through the buddhaverse traverses and twists and turns. It teaches. So we may evolve. Vanquish fear. Fear is nothing other than uncertainty.   S. R. Atchley

why we are restless

Do not take life’s experiences too seriously. Above all, do not let them hurt you, for in reality they are nothing but dream experiences. If circumstances are bad and you have to bear them, do not make them a part of yourself. Play your part in life, but never forget that it is only a role.   ~Yogananda

    I’m afraid I self protect with humor, but I have progressed from humor at others’ expense, to humor about myself, and even that’s gotten a little softer……but it’s still often a screen for the melting jello that is my inner self.
