how it is

We’re talking about timeless qualities that are there in every human being. When you come to sit in meditation the game is to sit, let the mind quiet, tend to the heart and begin to listen to the mystery of life. You are not meditating to fix yourself – you may have had some success in that, but it isn’t the point. The point instead is to become present for the mystery of your life.   ~Jack Kornfield

when your heart feels timeless but the day is too long with drudgery….

inquiry for today~   forget how to be and get on with the longing…….

delicate longing

Blessed be the longing that brought you here
And quickens your soul with wonder.

May you have the courage to listen to the voice of desire
That disturbs you when you have settled for something safe.

May you have the wisdom to enter generously into
your own unease
To discover the new direction your longing wants
you to take.

May the forms of your belonging — in love, creativity
and friendship —
Be equal to the grandeur and the call of your soul.

~John O’Donohue
