    The teachings on emptiness help us understand something fundamental about the nature of life, that although we have principles, values, and visions about how the world should be, the world is not a fixable place.

    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.
