there is reason to hope.
“The essence of Buddhist practice is not so much an effort at changing your thoughts or your behavior so that you can become a better person, but in realizing that no matter what you might think about the circumstances that define your life, you’re already good, whole, and complete. It’s about recognizing the inherent potential of your mind.
In other words, Buddhism is not so much concerned with getting well as with recognizing that you are, right here, right now, as whole, as good, as essentially well as you could ever hope to be.”
Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
our power is love. inexhaustible. found in our open hearts. vulnerable, tender, brave, and strong beyond measure.no one can take this away. it is the weapon of the oppressed, that eventually defeats the oppressor, who in ignorance underestimates its power. it is the long arc. ~j

it is just enough to know
you have the capacity to love,
to be moved by someone,
even that can be a window
to the deeper love,
the love that carries us all.
may you know
you are worthy of such love
and that your love
is a gift to this world.
you wouldn’t be here
if it wasn’t.

may our love include everyone ~j

remember, our resistance is not to people, but to the harmful ideology that is being pushed and enacted. an ideology of separateness, scapegoating, ignorance, fear, and aggression.
the antidote to these is inclusivity (a recognition of our interdependence), community (and equanimity), truth and awareness (or wakefulness), courage, lovingkindness, tenderness (open heart), and compassion.

love is inexhaustible.
love works tirelessly toward equality and justice, toward an end to suffering.
you don’t have to go far to find it.
love resides in the core of your being, in the deepest places of your heart, waiting to be discovered and set free.
so let your heart break open, dear friends, during this challenging time.
allow your love to flow and fuel your good work, your voice, and your art for the benefit of all.
