And we pray, not
for new earth or heaven, but to be
quiet in heart, and in eye,
clear. What we need is here.
- Wendell BerryWhen the earth is dying there shall arise a new tribe of all colors and all creeds.
This tribe shall be called The Warriors of the Rainbow
and it will put its faith in actions not words.

Marianne Williamson shares with us: "I think that what we are called upon to
do in a time when we see so much evil, is to have the moral grandeur and
spiritual audacity to believe in good, to proclaim it, to stand in
conviction. To take the people who truly do evil and yes, to hold them
accountable in appropriate ways, that goes without saying. But to
nevertheless stand for the possibility of human redemption that turns even
the hardest hearts."
Thich Nhat Hanh says:
"According to the Buddha's teachings, the most basic condition for happiness
is freedom. Here we do not mean political freedom, but freedom from the
mental formations of anger, despair, jealousy and delusion. These mental
formations are described by the Buddha as poisons. As long as these poisons
are still in our heart, happiness can not be possible.

"The everyday practice of dzogchen is just everyday life itself. Since the undeveloped state does not exist, there is no need to behave in any special way or attempt to attain anything above and beyond what you actually are. There should be no feeling of striving to reach some 'amazing goal' or 'advanced state.'
To strive for such a state is a neurosis which only conditions us and serves to obstruct the free flow of Mind. We should also avoid thinking of ourselves as worthless persons - we are naturally free and unconditioned. We are intrinsically enlightened and lack nothing."

[photo by Alan Larus on Facebook]Now I become myself. It's taken
Time, many years and places,
I have been dissolved and shaken,
Worn other people's faces,
Run madly, as if Time were there,
Terribly old, crying a warning,
"hurry, you will be dead before -----"
(What? Before you reach the morning?
or the end of the poem, is clear?
Or love safe in the walled city?)
Now to stand still, to be here,
Feel my own weight and density!.....
Now there is time and Time is young.
O, in this single hour I live
All of myself and do not move
I, the pursued, who madly ran,
Stand still, stand still, and stop the Sun!~ May Sarton ~(Collected Poems 1930-1993)Web version: www.panhala.net/Archive/Now_I_Become_Myself.html
