  • “When we question openly, our spiritual practice becomes a living experience, without dogma or fixed ideas.”
  • Musings

    I notice when I fall in love – which happens all the time! – I feel appreciation for and openness toward that being. The feeling of being in love, to me, means that I haven’t decided who someone is or what I want them to be.

    Emptiness & Interdependence

    “If you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper. Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow; and without trees, we cannot make paper.”

    Try With All Your Might

    When you give, it always feels like you are the one getting the offering, because you get to serve.
