stars resisting night

When we learn to bear our own pain and face our own fears, we will no longer blame and inflict it on others, neither family members nor other tribes. With mindfulness, instead of reacting, we can respond with spacious clarity, purpose, firmness, and compassion. A wise response includes whatever action, fierce at times, is the most caring toward life, our own and others’.    ~Jack Kornfield

these tiny fears become too big to manage….like how the longest night becomes too rich for wonder….

inquiry for today~   stay…..simply stay and ride out the night…….may your dark nights linger lightly…..

the wide, dark night

The absence of self—this emptiness—is not a thing that we can feel. It is, rather, more of a vehicle to help us understand our intrinsic connectedness with all things. This teaching can remind us that even though we may feel alone or isolated at times, we are not.        ~Lauren Krauze
