1/1/2009: Bringing The Mind Home
I am grateful to all my teachers, to all my practices, to all beings everywhere that struggle to become truly free. It is this collective effort of so many that serves to realize the good, the true, the beautiful – and to fulfill the eternal promise of redemption and reunion.
What is peace?
Peace is the still, quiet place when the cacophony of samsara (delusion, pain, suffering) is vanquished.
What is love?
Love is the realization that of all the things, of all the worlds, there is but ONE thing and this means that I will never, ever leave you – and that you will never, ever leave me.
What is mind?
Mind is that which you seek. Some call it God, some call it Brahma/Vishnu/Shiva, some call it ‘Buddha Nature’, some call it Allah, etc. You are mind. You are already home.
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present." ~ Master Oogway in “Kung-Fu Panda”
