Group Description

Quotations and poems from various sources (primarily Buddhist) for inspiration and guidance. Most of the quotations are hand-copied, which the moderator does as a form of spiritual practice. The Dharma for Today is posted once a day. This is read-only group; you will not receive postings from other members.

"Once you start to awaken, no one can ever claim you again for the old patterns. Now you realise how precious your time here is. You are no longer willing to squander your essence on undertakings that do not nourish your true self; your patience grows thin with tired talk and dead language. You see through the rosters of expectation which promise you safety and the confirmation of your outer identity. Now you are impatient for growth, willing to put yourself in the way of change. You want your work to become an expression of your gift. You want your relationship to voyage beyond the pallid frontiers to where the danger of transformation dwells. You want your God to be wild and to call you to where your destiny awaits."

John O’Donohue (1956-2008), poet and author, from "The Question Holds the Lantern"
