one with all things and beings in a divine awareness and energy that streams
from the light. It has also brought me closer to the love of the Father-Mother
for all things, and the protective passion that arises naturally from that love. I
at last am really beginning to understand what the Lakota Indians mean when
they say that all living things are their relations, and to feel some small part of
the love that drove St. Francis to love the larks rising from the dawn fields of
Tuscany and pick up the worms from the paths near his hermitage."

wisdom and means: for though they see the highest reality, they don’t cut
themselves off from conventional reality; nor cut themselves off from their
reality. The bodhisattva sets out to serve the aim of beings, led by great
compassion, and without delusion.”Once again compassion is the steering mechanism across the river of life.
How could one know how to help without the wisdom of meditation, and
what enlightenment would be complete without the vow to help all others
enmeshed?"by Wayne Ferguson on Facebook
"The ancient bodhisattvas were not afraid of, but found joy in failure, poverty
and death -- and in doing small things."~Shunryu Suzukiby Tim Gerchmez on FacebookWhen the bud breaks it becomes a flower. When the heart breaks it becomes
divine." ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar"Devotion and Self-Inquiry are one and the same. The Self of the Nondualists
is the God of the Bhaktis." ~Ramana MaharshiTo be a spiritual warrior, one must have a broken heart; without a broken
heart and the sense of tenderness and vulnerability, your warriorship is
untrustworthy. ~Chögyam Trungpaby Fred LaMotte on Facebook
The way of love is not a subtle argument.
The door there is devastation.
Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling, they're given wings.
