What beauty is- beauty isn’t all about just niceness, loveliness. Beauty is about more rounded substantial becoming. And when we cross a new threshold worthily, what we do is we heal the patterns of repetition that were in us that had us caught somewhere.
So I think beauty in that sense is about an emerging fullness, a greater sense of grace and elegance, a deeper sense of depth, and also a kind of homecoming for the enriched memory of your unfolding life.
kindness isn’t about being nicey nice…..it’s about fierce and bold remembering…

A spiritual practice enables a decrease in the “Dharma Lag”: the time passing between the arising of a thought, a word, a behavior, an attitude, and the fear and mindful awareness of the arising. Sadly, we may have Dharma lags the are 50 or 60 years old. It is certainly possible with practice and with intention, to duress the lag time. With that growing diminution of the Dharma lag, we begin to be in the present moment, the arising and the recognition occurring simultaneously. We can begin to experience the completeness, the wholeness, the refuge of presence as it unfolds each arising appearance.
We may have stalled in whatever spiritual aspirations we’ve had earlier I our lives, waiting for the right time or for someone to point out the way. But the time is now and the way is right here. Walking the path is simply a matter of showing up. We just beri looking, exploring where we are in our mind body and what is actually happening in this moment. Then, we explore where we are and what is actually happening in the next moment, and then where we are and what is actually happening in the moment after that, the next unfolding of now.
The mindful recognition of option, this particular opening of seeing a moment of choice and allowing the wisdom of awareness to discern the most beneficial view, enables transformation.
