The dew drop of a new day.  How much beauty will you miss today while you're busy thinking of a wall or a game or the past or the future or dinner or Monday?  #buddhadharmasangha

Taking a few moments to reflect on the group experience of yesterday. My heart has expanded with the realization that conversations such as this can and should be held in a container where we can stumble as we learn. I’m immensely grateful for the men who have opened their hearts and minds in conversation and practice. #freedomthroughgrowth #undoingpatriarchy #uncoveringthesacredmasculine #buddhadharmasangha #sacredmasculinity #takerefuge #eightfoldpath #disruptingthestatusquo #metta @meditationcoalition @insightlameditation @lamarodowens @eyes_of_daniel

“When a storm hits, an entire ocean of wind and rain is spent upon the land. Leaves are turned inside out, branches are torn, and even hard granite is worn away. But such gales seldom last an entire day. In spite of the tremendous amount of force that is released, the storm cannot last.

If heaven’s works cannot last a day, human works must be even less lasting. Governments barely survive from year to year, the rules of society are constantly being challenged, the family erodes, personal relationships decay, and one’s career topples. Even the monuments of the world are now being destroyed by air pollution and neglect. Nothing lasts. It is simple fact that no event set in motion by human beings lasts forever.

All our efforts are temporary. They borrow from preexisting forces, ride the current of natural events, and disappear according to the dictates of the situation. It is best to realize the transitory nature of things and work with it. Understanding the world’s ephemeral nature can be the biggest advantage of all.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #365tao #mingdaodeng #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #ftwdharmacult #pmaeveryday #sithappens #heavilymeditated #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #soberandfree #soberlife #freedomfromouraddictions #sobrietyrocks #wedorecover #odaat #eightfoldpath #impermanence #buddhadharmasangha #anicca #iedharmapunx

“It is wise to plan each day. By setting goals for oneself and organizing activities to be accomplished, one can be sure that each day will be full and never wasted.
Followers of Tao use patterns when planning. They observe the ways of nature, perceive the invisible lines of destiny. They imagine a pattern for their entire lives, and in this way, they ensure overall success. Each day, they match interim patterns against their master goals, and so navigate life with sureness and grace. It is precisely this ability to discern and manipulate patterns unknown to the ordinary person that makes the follower of Tao so formidable.
When unpredictable things happen, those who follow Tao are also skilled at improvisation. If circumstances deny them, they change immediately. To avoid confusion, they still discern the patterns of the situation and create new ones, much like a chess player at the board. The spontaneous creation of new patterns is their ultimate art.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #365tao #mingdaodeng #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #fournobletruths #eightfoldpath #soberandfree #wedorecover #wisefriends #youdonthavetowalkalone #soberlife #sobrietyrocks #sobriety #makeadifferencetoday #buddhadharmasangha #iloveyoukeepgoing #onedayatatime #iedharmapunx

“Stretching—both literally and metaphorically—is a necessary part of life.

Physically, a good program of stretching emphasizes all parts of the body. You loosen the joints and tendons first, so that subsequent movements will not hurt. Then methodically stretch the body, beginning with the larger muscle groups such as the legs and back, and proceed to finer and smaller parts like the fingers. Coordinate stretching with breathing; use long and gentle stretches rather than bouncing ones. When you stretch in one direction, always be sure to stretch in the opposite direction as well. If you follow this procedure, your flexibility will undoubtedly increase.

Metaphorical stretching leads to expansion and flexibility in personal growth. A young plant is tender and pliant. An older one is stiff, woody, and vulnerable to breaking. Softness is thus equated with life, hardness with death. The more flexible you are, the greater your mental and physical health.” #takerefuge #365tao #mingdaodeng #refugerecovery #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #buddhadharmasangha #rightnowitslikethis #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #wedorecover #odaat #soberandfree #freedomfromaddiction #monkeymind #makeadifferencetoday #dontclingtofixedviews #iloveyoukeepgoing #metta #heavymetta #dietrying #ftwdharmacult #iedharmapunx

“If a fisherman does not have a properly repaired net, then his trip is useless. Preparation is the major part of his endeavor. Only when the fisherman keeps his nets intact, keeps his boat repaired, and studies the conditions of fish and water does going out to fish become a mere formality. Then fish fall into his hands as if guided by invisible lines.

When it seems as if nothing encouraging is happening to us, it is important to remember such perseverance. Work may be drudgery, maintaining a home may be routine, and we may find our goals quite distant. But we must persevere and prepare nevertheless. That will bring a steady pace toward our goals, and buoy our faith in rough and threatening times.

To taste the fruit of perseverance requires maturity and experience. We need to cultivate patience, planning, and timing. We build our resources even when circumstances seem to be against us. We don’t neglect anything we have set in motion. If we nurse our plans through good times and bad, our plans will eventually succeed with the inevitability of fish caught in a net.” #takerefuge #365tao #mingdaodeng #refugerecovery #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #heavilymeditated #sithappens #buddhadharmasangha #makeadifferencetoday #soberandfree #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #everymomentcounts #livefortoday #soberlife #sobrietyrocks #sobrietyisworthit #bethechange #iedharmapunx #odaat #onebreathatatime #rightnowitslikethis #iloveyoukeepgoing

Our are ability to see clearly deepens with this practice and is priceless. It has been called “inner wealth” and is described as timeless, the opposite of material wealth. . We cultivate compassion, kindness and wisdom. To do this,there is a need for solitude for silence. This is the gift we give ourselves when going on retreat. All distractions, as much as possible are removed and the retreat itself becomes a container in which we investigate, sense, experience life as it happens. In this environment, loving kindness, compassion, patience, joy are practiced. And In this supportive environment, we get to know our minds; we get to see whats wholesome and unwholesome in our thoughts actions and behavior without judging it as good or bad. The instruction is to meet whatever arises with an open mind and an open heart, because the only one that is present that we can free ourselves of the patterns and habits that cause stress in our minds and hearts and this is truly a gift. Our next retreat is April 19 to the 23rd, at the Delray Beach Casa san Carlos retreat center. To register click on the link under the bio. Please share this with others who might be interested. #Mindfulness #SpiritualRetreat #SpiritualFriends #Compassion #LovingKindness #patience #Joy #Support #BuddhaDharmaSangha #Buddha #Wakefulness#Practice practice practice #WBMindfulness

“Walking may be a good metaphor for spiritual life, but there are times when simple hiking is literally the best activity. When one walks in the woods or climbs mountains, there is a wonderful unity of body, mind, and spirit. Hiking strengthens the legs, increases stamina, invigorates the blood, and soothes the mind. Away from the madness of society, one is freed to observe nature’s lessons.

Erosion. Gnarled roots. The carcass of a dead deer. A flight of swallows. The high spirals of hawks. Bladed reflections of rushing water. Just budding bare branches. Gray rock, cracked, shattered, and worn. A fallen tree. A lone cloud. The laughter of plum branches. Even a little circle of rocks beside the trail—who put them there, or did any hand arrange them, and no matter which, what are the secrets of that circle?

There are a thousand meanings in every view, if only we open ourselves to see the scripture of the landscape.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #dharmapunx #meditateanddestroy #againstthestream #dharmacult #ftwpma #buddhadharmasangha #sithappens #heavilymeditated #soberlife #soberandfree #sobrietyisfreedom #sobrietyrocks #odaat #makeadifferencetoday #iedharmapunx

“Going to the beach means walking in fresh air, listening to the sound of waves, feeling the grit of sand beneath our feet. The narrow ribbon between land and ocean is a perfect place to understand the mind of wisdom. Just as there is a dynamic balance between sand and water, so too is there a dynamic equilibrium between the quiescent and active sides of our minds. Just as the sand is constantly being washed, so too should we keep our minds free of lingering impressions.
We often let thoughts, regrets, and doubts from past activities carry over into the present. This leads us to conflict. Instead of allowing this to happen, we should act without leaving consequences. This requires great thoroughness. Such completeness is challenging, but to succeed is to live perfectly. By resolving the problems of each day to our utmost satisfaction, we attain the sublime purity of a beach constantly washed by waves.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #freedomfromaddiction #wedorecover #happinessisacollectionofgoodhabits #dharmacult #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #sithappens #heavilymeditated #soberandfree #soberandhappy #agnosticbuddhism #theravadabuddhism #buddhadharmasangha #existentialism #helpeveryone #iloveyoukeepgoing #walkingthetalk #iedharmapunx #bethechange

The Buddha was a person who advocated a virtuous, compassionate and wise approach towards life. He wasn’t a God...he was an awakened person whose teachings apply to our life today. I feel blessed to have learned about this wise and compassionate path to life🙏❤️#realife #buddhadharmasangha #meditation #mindfulness #wbmindfulness

“Meditation opens seldom glimpsed areas of our subconscious. When that happens, extraordinary thoughts and awareness come to us with seeming spontaneity. We realize truths that were opaque to us before; we perceive events that were previously too distant. But no one ever became superhuman because of meditation. They only opened their own latent potential. Everything is locked inside of us and need only be opened. That is why it is said that heaven is within us.
In the same way, the pains and the struggles of the past sometimes haunt us with astounding vehemence. Problems and conflicts are difficult to exorcise. Although we may practice spirituality and move on to new endeavors and relationships, past hurts still come back in our memories and dreams. These are not demons from another world, nor are they karmic manifestations of previous lives; they are scars in our subconscious. No matter how diligently we try to make progress, there still are pains that curse us day after day. This is why it is said that hell is within us.
We ourselves are the battleground for good and evil. There is no need to look beyond our world. Everything to be understood is within us. All that must be transcended—the pains and scars of the past—is within us. All the power of transcendence is also within us. Tap into it and you tap into the divine itself.” #takerefuge #365tao #mingdaodeng #refugerecovery #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #heavilymeditated #ftwdharmacult #freedomthroughwisdom #freedomfromaddiction #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #neverboring #soberlife #soberandfree #mettameditation #odaat #moralcompass #sobrietyrocks #doitforyourself #doitforallbeings #iloveyoukeepgoing

Spirituality means returning to your true nature of harmony, peace & bliss.

You have to grow from inside to surface to reach that beauty.

No one can teach you, no one can make you spiritual. 
There is no other teacher but your own soul. You have to become your own master🕯️🔥 ————Spiritualitas berarti kembali ke sifat sejati Anda yaitu harmoni, kedamaian & kebahagiaan.

Anda harus tumbuh dari dalam ke permukaan untuk mencapai keindahan itu.

Tidak ada yang bisa mengajarimu, tidak ada yang bisa membuatmu spiritual.

Tidak ada guru lain selain jiwamu sendiri. Anda harus menjadi tuanmu sendiri🕯️🔥 #namasté #spiritual #spiritualawakening #healingvibes #soul #bodyandmind #buddhateachings🙏 #dhamma🌟 #buddhadharmasangha 🙏🏻😇 #salamcintakasihdankedamaian

“...When, having gone
to the Buddha, Dhamma,
& Sangha for refuge,
you see with right discernment
the four noble truths —
stress,
the cause of stress,
the transcending of stress,
& the noble eightfold path,
the way to the stilling of stress:
that’s the secure refuge,
that, the supreme refuge,
that is the refuge,
having gone to which,
you gain release
from all suffering & stress.”
~Buddhavagga: Awakened (Dhp XIV), translation by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

“It is often superstitiously said that one who follows Tao knows magic. This is nonsense. Superiority is simply a matter of using the best of one’s abilities and being in the right position. For example, a wise person who lives high in the mountains and who is not blinded by wine, sensuality, intellectuality, poor health, or greed will be better able to see events in the distance than one who lives in a closed room, eyes on some obscure project.

A storm does not happen abruptly; it takes hours, sometimes days, to develop. Travelers do not arrive suddenly; they can be seen in the distance. Knowing things in advance is possible with a high vantage point. For this reason, the follower of Tao appears to know magic.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #buddhadharmasangha #meditateanddestroy #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #straightedge #dharmacult #neverboring #freedomfromaddiction #dharmapunx #againstthestream #soberlife #soberandfree #sobernotboring #freedomthroughwisdom #ftwdharmacult #iedharmapunx

“A person with a kite can make it dip, turn, and flutter at will. An expert can even use a fighting kite and engage another’s until one is cut loose. It’s fun flying a kite, feeling the gigantic tug on the end of your line. 
Sometimes the wind is so strong that it will nearly lift you off the ground. When you harness the forces of nature, you harness something quite powerful.

This is an example of the proper utilization of Tao. It is taking advantage of natural forces. It means accepting the way they work, and then finding a way to borrow their power. It does not mean trying to change or circumscribe things. If the wind is not blowing our kite the way we want, we cannot change it. We can only borrow its energy. When initiative and natural forces are combined, there is true harmony.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #wedorecover #freedomfromaddiction #freedomfromdelusion #dharmacult #surviveandthrive #pmaeveryday #buddhadharmasangha #iedharmapunx #sobrietyrocks #heavilymeditated

“Life is a constant series of opportunities. If we don’t reach out for things, if we don’t take advantage of what comes our way, then we cannot be in harmony with the essential nature of life.

The tiger is the same way. He conforms to every situation that comes. If he spots prey and is not ready to hunt, he will let it go. But he has not failed to act. He has knowingly let the prey escape, and this is much different from someone who loses a situation through slow reflexes or inability. When the tiger wants his prey, he pounces upon it without any thought or hesitation. There are no morals, no guilt, no psychological problems, no ideologies to interfere with the purity of his action. This undiminished grace in action is called nonaction.

This is engagement. Whatever comes to you, you must engage it somehow. You receive it, you may alter the circumstance and let it go, you may interject something of your own into it, or you may knowingly let it pass. Whatever you do, there is no need to be apathetic toward life. Instead, full participation in all things is the surest way to happiness, vitality, success, and a deep knowledge of Tao.” #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #365tao #mingdaodeng #againstthestream #dharmapunx #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #soberandfree #pmaeveryday #ftwpma #wedorecover #soberlife #freedomfromaddiction #freedomthroughwisdom #dharmacult #straightedge #neverboring #iedharmapunx

“No matter what world you walk in—office, school, temple, prison, or the streets—there is an underworld populated with demons. These are people who are avaricious, aggressive, sadistic, and cynical. They not only take advantage of others without compunction, they delight in it. They find pleasure in seeing others suffer.
The why of it cannot be answered. There is only the fact, with no metaphysical meaning or other ramifications. It is not karma, it is not fate. If these people decide to attack you, it is circumstance. You must fight or be mowed down.
Compassion and humility may be among the most treasured of human virtues, but they are not useful in conflict. A beautiful gold statue of your most adored god is a treasure, but you would not use it as a weapon. Virtue is to be valued in the proper context; only a sword will do in battle.
Whether an attack is physical—assault, rape, murder—or whether it is mental—business intrigues, emotional abuse—you must be prepared. It is best to prepare for conflict by learning as much self-defense as possible. You will not become a bully or a monster, but instead, you will learn that you can respond to any situation. If you are never attacked, that will be wonderful. Training will still help you work out your fears, inhibitions, and anxieties. In the case of conflict, no one, not even a veteran, is ever sure that they will come out alive from a confrontation. But they resolve to go in there and give themselves a fighting chance. This in itself is a triumph over evil.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #wedorecover #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #soberandfree #heavilymeditated #iedharmapunx

“Most of us embody disparate aspects in our personalities; these are our forms, the way we take shape. If we aren’t careful, we can become confused by such complexity. We should not deny any part of ourselves. We should arrange them. All elements are valid—they must simply be placed in the right context. 
Those who follow Tao understand that a diverse personality is problematic only if some aspects dominate to the exclusion of the others. This is unbalanced. If there is constant alteration between all aspects, then equilibrium is possible. Like the planets, feelings, instincts, and emotions must be kept in a constantly rotating order. Then all things have their place and the problems of excess are avoided.
Just as the sun is at the center of our solar system, so too must the mind of wisdom be the center of our diverse personalities. If our minds are strong, then the various parts of our lives will be held firmly to their proper courses, and there will be no chance of deviation.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #soberandfree #wedorecover #iedharmapunx

We should not deny any part of ourselves. We should arrange them. All elements are valid—they must simply be placed in the right context. Those who follow Tao understand that a diverse personality is problematic only if some aspects dominate to the exclusion of the others. This is unbalanced. If there is constant alteration between all aspects, then equilibrium is possible. Like the planets, feelings, instincts, and emotions must be kept in a constantly rotating order. Then all things have their place and the problems of excess are avoided. Just as the sun is at the center of our solar system, so too must the mind of wisdom be the center of our diverse personalities. If our minds are strong, then the various parts of our lives will be held firmly to their proper courses, and there will be no chance of deviation.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #soberandfree #wedorecover #iedharmapunx - 18 days ago

“Making love is natural. Why be ashamed of it?
That seems simple, but it is actually a great challenge in these complex times. Too many other layers of meaning have been imposed upon sex. Religions straitjacket it, ascetics deny it, romantics glorify it, intellectuals theorize about it, obsessives pervert it. These actions have nothing to do with lovemaking. They come from fanaticism and compulsive behavior. Can we actually master the challenge of having lovemaking be open and healthy?
Sex should not be used as leverage, manipulation, selfishness, or abuse. It should not be a ground for our personal compulsions and delusions.
Sexuality is an honest reflection of our innermost personalities, and we should ensure that its expression is healthy. Making love is something mysterious, sacred, and often the most profound interaction between people. Whether what is created is a relationship or pregnancy, the legacy of both partners will be inherent in their creation. What we put into love determines what we get out of it.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #soberandfree #buddhadharmasangha #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #iedharmapunx

Scars “Throughout our life, but especially during our youth, many scars are inflicted upon us. Some of them are the results of violence, abuse, rape, or warfare. Others arise from bad education. A few come from humiliation and failure. Others are caused by our own misadventures. Unless we recover from these injuries, the scars mar us forever.
Classical scriptures urge us to withdraw from our own lusts and sins. But scan that have happened through no fault of our own may also bar us from spiritual success. Unfortunately, it is often easier to give up a bad habit than to recover from the incisions of others’ violence. The only way is through self-cultivation. Doctors and priests can only do so much. The true course of healing is up to us alone. To do this, we must acquire many methods, travel widely, struggle to overcome our personal phobias, and perhaps most importantly of all, try to acquire as few new problems as possible. Unless we do, each one of them will bar us from true communion with Tao.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #buddhadharmasangha #soberandfree #meditateanddestroy #iedharmapunx #heavilymeditated

“We look up to our parents, our teachers, and our leaders with trust and expectation. Their responsibility is to guide us, educate us, and even make judgments on our behalf when circumstances are uncertain. Ultimately, they are to bring us to the point where we can make our own decisions, based on the wisdom that they have helped us develop.
But the potential for abuse and mistakes is very great. What person can be right all the time? A simple lapse at the wrong time can cause confusion, psychological scars, and even great disaster. Harsh words during a child’s impressionable moments can engender years of problems. That is why we need a parent for the parent, a master for the master, and leaders for the leaders. This prevents errors of power. In the past, even kings had wise advisers. Every person who would be a leader should have such assistance.
Eventually, someone has to be at the top. And who will that person turn to? Let us invoke not deities but pragmatism. It is experience that is the ultimate teacher. That is why wise people travel constantly and test themselves against the flux of circumstance. It is only in this way that they can truly confirm their thoughts and compensate for their shortcomings.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #dharmapunx #wedorecover #soberandfree #pmaeveryday #iedharmapunx

"The process of recovery will slowly transform us, stirring up all our impurities, bringing all the muck to the surface, where it can finally be healed. This is a path that heals the heart and transforms the mind, leaving us with an'awakened heart and mind.' We have always had good hearts. They were just so badly covered and obscured they were lost to us. By returning to this lost aspect of ourselves, we recover. Many would call this a spiritual awakening, enlightenment, or liberation. Although it may be all these things, it is also just a simple psychologically based process of seeing clearly what is true and, then, learning how to respond appropriately. The appropriate response ends suffering. The appropriate response allows us to recover our freedom."

“In the past, feasting was a way to bind the community closer together. The same is true today. Whether they are cultural gatherings, times of group worship, or even special dinners with friends, we all need moments where we come together and reaffirm the importance of our group.
The cheer that we feel is essential both to the collective and the individuals involved. The affirmation of the group should not be a sublimation of the individual but rather a framework for involvement. A good gathering requires participation—the efforts of organization, work, and attendance—and in turn gives back sustenance for body and soul, a sense of belonging, and the accomplishment of something that could not be done by the individuals alone.
Like any other human endeavor, the feast is vulnerable to manipulation and politics, the selfish maneuvering of cynical individuals. This is difficult to avoid completely, for it is impossible for any group to truly be united. The only way to mitigate this is for the collective to keep its intentions strictly on its purpose, to select its leaders wisely, and for those leaders to be as enlightened as possible.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #meditateanddestroy #wedorecover #soberlife #buddhadharmasangha #iedharmapunx

When we suffer or see suffering, we often react This is an automatic reaction to pain. We are wired to avoid pain as a survival response. While it does keep us alive, it also restricts our ability to live wholeheartedly.  when we’re able to be stay present, open hearted, our mind free from aversion, we are able to help ourselves and others meet pain of life, with compassion and wisdom. It is a skill we develop through the practice of meditation and mindfulness. It helps us awaken the heart of compassion and wisdom. 🙏#wbmindfulness #compassion #meditation #learningtostay #wisdom #awakenedheartmind #aversion #buddhadharmasangha

USELESSNESS “Loggers delight in straight-grained, strong, fragrant wood. If the timber is too difficult to cut, too twisted to be made straight, too foul-odored for cabinets, and too spongy for firewood, it is left alone. Useful trees are cut down. Useless ones survive.
The same is true of people. The strong are conscripted. The beautiful are exploited. Those who are too plain to be noticed are the ones who survive. They are left alone and safe.
But what if we ourselves are among such plain persons? Though others may neglect us, we should not think of ourselves as being without value. We must not accept the judgment of others as the measure of our own self-worth. Instead, we should live our lives in simplicity. Surely, we will have flaws, but we must take stock in them according to our own judgment and then use them as a measure of self-improvement. Since we need not expend energy in putting on airs or maintaining a position, we are actually free to cultivate the best parts of our personalities. Thus, to be considered useless is not a reason for despair, but an opportunity. It is the chance to live without interference and to express one’s own individuality.” #365tao #mingdaodeng #takerefuge #refugerecovery #recoveryispossible #dharmapunx #againstthestream #wedorecover #rightnowitslikethis #meditateanddestroy #buddhadharmasangha #soberlife #addictionrecovery #heavilymeditated #iedharmapunx

Judgment comes up when we feel in someway threatened. It’s a defensive move towards protection that imprisons the mind and heart. And the move towards protection is usually automatic so access to wisdom is limited. When we’re present we have access to the wisdom of the heart/mind...we slow down the reactivity and move towards understanding wisdom and compassion. It is a completely different way of meeting experience and we can become that space that welcomes all experience without judgment. #ShiftFromReactingToResponding #Compassion #Wisdom #Kindness #AppreciateLife #TrueRefuge #BuddhaDharmaSangha #wbmindfulness

We can never know what is going to happen moment to moment. Yet we search for safety and security in an ever changing world. It’s when we accept impermanence that we once again flow with life instead of resisting. For me, it’s taken bringing compassion to the times that are challenging and knowing that I plan ahead as best I can and then let go. #uncertainty #dontknowmind #pemachodron #wisdom #vulnerability #patience #courage #buddhadharmasangha #wbmindfulness
