the bellows of my throat,
and the light inside grew
and filtered out through
the dark, so that within
even it, I saw the truth.

'To love is to recognize yourself in another.'
~Eckhart TolleAlan Larus Photography"Mindfulness is mirror-thought. It reflects only what is presently happening and
in exactly the way it is happening. There are no biases."
~ Bhante GunaratanaFrom the Facebook group 'Serious Doubt.'
"Silent and serene,
Bright clarity appears before you.
When you reflect it,
You become vast,
Where you embody it,
You are spiritually uplifted.
Spiritually solitary and shining,
Inner illumination inspires wonder,
Dew in the moonlight,
A river of stars,
Clouds enveloping the peak...
What is this wonder?
Alertly seeing through confusion
Is the way of silent illumination and
The origin of subtle radiance."
From "Cultivating The Empty Field," published by North Point Press.via Daily Dharma by anipachen
"Q: This is not a one-shot deal, is it? I mean you can open yourself in one context,
and yet when you find yourself in some other situation suddenly you take hold of a
mask and put it over your face, even though you really do not want to do it. It
would seem that achieving complete openness is a difficult thing.A: The whole point is that struggle is irrelevant to opening. Once you have stepped
on the path, if you give up the struggle itself, that takes care of the whole
problem. Then there is no longer any questions of wanting or not wanting to be
involved with life-situations. The ape instinct of ego dissolves because it is based
upon secondhand information rather than upon direct experience of what is.
Struggle is ego. Once you give up struggle, then there is no one left to conquer
struggle; it just disappears. So you see, it is not a matter of achieving a victory
~ Chogyam Trungpa RinpocheFrom the book, "Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism," published by Shambhala.

a song entitled, "Sarvesham svastir bhavatu" and I wanted to share it with you. Ms.

enjoy it!The direct Youtube link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XP-f7wPM0AThe blog I discovered it at is:
