We are intended to be in relationship with the ongoing movement of life. But when you look at life as though nothing will change, it won’t. The more you push away what you don’t want, the more you keep it in place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xn8iQ8D8H_o&t=14s

Life, in creation, is ceaseless change: (it is) a visible manifestation of an invisible Divine principle revealing itself through rebirth. We can either realize our existence within this eternal movement — as a designated part of its everlasting design — or we can continue to struggle with unwanted moments in the false belief that our…

The fact that we always want something from the moment — even if it’s to not want what it offers, or has otherwise come to reveal — blinds us to the fact that every moment is always giving us… showering us with the Light of a Life that wants for nothing.

It wasn’t terribly long ago, before this world got as sick as it is now, that men and women were dedicated to the preparation of the soul, to an understanding that when the time came to leave the body, they wouldn’t be afraid or wondering if they had misspent their life.

For example, let’s look at the life of a simple leaf. As it’s born and slowly unfolds, it captures the soft light of spring…

What good is the love of Truth without agreeing to embody the freedom it promises? This means that from this love — daring to embrace what is light, right, and true even in the midst of all that seems wrong within and around us. We must bring its flame into the midst of our storms…

A pair of brothers set out for a day of extreme climbing on a mountain with steep rock faces and dangerous icefalls. They take nothing with them save for the gear they will need to enjoy an afternoon of climbing. But three hours into their ascent, they’re caught off-guard by a totally unexpected storm of…
