Thoughts: Nearly spring….

treeHave you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky, How beautiful it is? All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness there is a poem, there is a song. Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.

When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with the music of many leaves, which in due season fall and are blown away. And this is the way of life.
~ Krishnamurti

Thoughts: Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light…

I came across a poem this week that stopped me in my tracks. I was reading the Tibetan Book Of The Dead when the eight lines below jumped off the page.

I’ve never seen a description of “source” written on paper so succinctly. This is the epitome of what we are touching at the height of ceremony and deep meditation – when we are truly awake.

These words are now printed on the wall next to my desk:

Remember the clear light,
The pure clear white light
From which everything in the universe comes,
To which everything in the universe returns;
The original nature of your own mind.
The natural state of the universe unmanifest.
Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it.
It is your own true nature, it is home.
– The Tibetan Book Of The Dead

Never forget who you really are.
Stay curious,

Thoughts: We’re in it, together….

Even tiny insects survive by mutual cooperation based on innate recognition of their interconnectedness. It is because our own human existence is so dependent on the help of others that our need for love lays at the very foundation of our existence.

Therefore we need a genuine sense of responsibility and a sincere concern for the welfare of others.
— Dalai Lama
