be luminous, as you are!

O Nobly Born, O you of glorious origins, remember your radiant true nature, the essence of mind. Trust it. Return to it. It is home.

~

The Tibetan Book of the Dead

we stop. we breathe. we rest with an open heart and calm mind free from clinging.

in that rest, that place of silence, we reconnect with life, we reconnect with our tenderness of heart. in Buddhism this is called buddha-nature. in Christianity you might say it is who we are in God. in other practices one might say it is our deepest, authentic self beyond the layers of ego and suffering.

this is our practice, over and over again, so that we may be of benefit to others, filled with love and free in our openness.

you are a unique expression of life and love in this place and at this time. what a gift! act from that place of love and life – be luminous as you are!
