in between Easter’s gifts

1-DSC09739

I shift from light to dark,

from fear to knowing,

from separate to whole

and back again a

thousand times

each day, but truth

is patient. It waits,

undiminished by

my circumstances,

not wavering even a

fraction of a degree

from reality. Truth

waits until I wake,

until I leave my

forgetfulness behind,

until I gather all my courage

and look inside. Fear only

seems bottomless;

truth is infinite.

~Danna Faulds

this liminal space of seasons and inner awareness are finely tuned places in our lives where refinement can happen……may the blessings of the Easter and spring invite us to offer our best and kindest offerings……

For a few moments, be aware of your potential for change. Whatever your present situation is, evolution and transformation are always possible. At the least, you can change your way of seeing things and then, gradually, your way of being as well. Resolve deep within to liberate yourself from you present situation and arouse the enthusiasm and the perseverance necessary to develop the good qualities that are latent within you.   ~Matthieu Ricard

Spending all your life trying to achieve ordinary worldly goals (like pleasure, gain, praise, and renown)- would be like trying to net fish in a dry riverbed. Clearly understanding this, make a firm decision not to allow your life to pursue such a useless course.   ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
