Starting with your own heart…

Gentleness and kindness start at home. We begin with our own heart. When we are kind and gentle with ourselves, we naturally offer this gentle kindness to all beings we meet.

How do you remember to be present and loving with yourself?

Right Action is Showing Up

Softness prevails here on the back portal.
The prayed for rain filters through the dark night..
There is trust. There is peace.
There is loving engagement for each living body.

Mother Nature Abides here in Right Action.
She continuously shows up 100% no matter what.

A suggestion:
Live today with no excuses.
Within each moment show up 100%.
Bear witness and continue showing up!

Right Action Magic

Steam from hot miso
Moves into steady rain
Dissolving…
Becoming invisible,
But not gone.

Aroma lingers
As does its’ magic.

What Right Action are you putting forth?
What magic lingers?

Right Action Rising

Cultivate and manifest Right Action…
Because, like a terma, it is time.

Act not because of duress ~
Act to serve, to care, to love, to connect
And to remember we are one family.

In this moment determine your Right Action.
Act then without hesitation
And take it to the streets.

Where is your family?

“Where is your family?” the young monk asked the old woman.

“Here, there and everywhere,” she answered slowly.

Then she motioned to the ground beneath her barefeet, the skies above her head, the tall trees and the high desert mountains surrounding her. She pointed to Raven flying the thermals, Mama Bobcat hunting for her kits, Quail Family strutting across the land.

“My family is everywhere.”

Where are your teachers?

“Where are your teachers?” the young monk asked the old woman.

“Here, there and everywhere,” she answered slowly spinning the globe pointing to Wuhan, New York City, Seoul, Minneapolis, Milan, Flint, Paris, Los Angeles.

“My teachers are everywhere,” she said, “everywhere. Most wouldn’t recognize me.”

Keep your awareness strongly steeped in Love
As you move forward with intention.

Do not squander your life nor another’s
Through inactivity and paralysis.

This is not a time for lassitude.
