We cannot force awakening in others.
We can only practice to awaken ourselves and in our practice make ourselves available to benefit others though the benefits of our practice.
In this way, we are planting seeds of loving kindness, compassion, open heartedness, and wisdom. Then when the right conditions arise, these seeds are nourished and grow manifesting awakening in others as well.
Just shine your light. And your light, like the sun, will give life.
Wishing everyone all that is beneficial and all that brings happiness on this Tibetan New Year, Losar.
when the narrative is dark and foreboding, when the banner of fear is waved gathering the masses under it, and what is said divides us, denying our interdependence – look to nature to regain your balance. sit with her, resting in her silence, aligning yourself with the Way, and remember there is always Light.
sitting with stars…
when you miss the Sun
look to the Moon
when you miss the Moon
then you shall see
all of the suns
have come out to play
