Remember these teachings, remember the clear light, the pure bright shining white light of your own nature. It is deathless.
—The Tibetan Book of the Dead
A straight road would take no time at all.
It would be too easy, too direct.
A road with many twists and turns, ups and downs,
this is one filled with adventure and change.
It is one that will challenge us and enable us to grow wise with experience.
Believe in the whispers of your heart,
Listen to the little details.
Open your ears and ultimately your soul.
Silence engulfs me,
Sometimes we forget to look around at what we have; what we are so lucky to have. So I have to remind myself to look again. Shut my eyes, breathe, contemplate the life that I have and all that is in it.
It is amazing how this can rejuvenate your life and give you a new sense of want, of desire, of love.
