You don't have a life. You are life." (Guardians of Being)
~ Eckhart Tolleon Facebook
"As your practice becomes more stable, it will no longer be necessary to meditate
intentionally on emptiness; it will be integrated into your understanding. You will reach
a point when you see that emptiness and compassion, emptiness and phenomena, and
absolute and relative truth, are intrinsically one, rather than being in each case two
separate entities like the horns of a goat. The vaster your view of emptiness, the
clearer your understanding will be of the infinite ways phenomena can manifest in
accordance with the law of cause and effect. And it is from emptiness inseparable from
compassion that a bodhisattva manifests."From the book, "The Heart of Compassion," published by Shambhala.

quarrel "real or unreal, form or formless, many or one" is to be blinded by illusion.Self-abidance alone is a miracle.
The other miracles are like dreams which last until waking.
Can those firmly rooted in reality lapse into illusion?Alan Larus Photography

that this, too, was a gift.~ Mary Oliver
"Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being
Something helpless that needs help from us."
~ Rilkevia Daily Dharma http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DailyDharma/Alan Larus PhotographyWords are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.~ RumiEarth Verse
Wide enough to keep you looking
Open enough to keep you moving
Dry enough to keep you honest
Prickly enough to make you tough
Green enough to go on living
Old enough to give you dreams
