No matter how much time you have in an experience or with someone you love, it will never feel like enough. So don’t think about it in terms of quantity—aim for quality, instead. Attach to the idea of living well moment-to-moment. That’s an attachment that can do you no harm. ~Lori Deschene



Truth of Being

Define yourself in fluid terms

We are all constantly evolving and growing. Define yourself in terms that can withstand change. Defining yourself by possessions, roles, and relationships breeds attachment because loss entails losing not just what you have, but also who you are. ~Lori Deschene



Catch yourself before something else catches you...

Call yourself out.

Learn what it looks like to grasp at people, things, or circumstances so you can redirect your thoughts when they veer toward attachment. When you dwell on keeping, controlling, manipulating, or losing something instead of simply experiencing it.. ~Lori Deschene



This is NOW...

Believe Now is Enough

It’s true—tomorrow may not look the same as today, no matter how much you try to control it. A relationship might end. You might have to move. You’ll deal with those moments when they come. All you need right now is to appreciate and enjoy what you have. It’s enough.. ~Lori Deschene



Momentary Lapse of Reason

Accept the moment for what it is.

Don’t try to turn it into yesterday; that moment’s gone. Don’t plot about how you can make the moment last forever. Just seep into the moment and enjoy it because it will eventually pass. Nothing is permanent. Fighting that reality will only cause you pain. ~Lori Deschene

Zen Phrase of the Day
Hundreds of thousands of impressions
from the invisible are wanting to come through...

I get dizzy with the abundance. When life
is this dear, it means the source is pulling us.

The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say,
but what we are unable to say. 
~Anaïs Nin


Open the Window

Zen Phrase of the Day

Keep knocking, and the joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who's there...


Star-crossed and from the beginning once more...

Pic of the day

There is a world, forming out of Nothing,
and out of Nothing will come a tree,
and the tree will sit a bird,
and under the tree there walks a man,
and that man will learn the language of birds,
and find that the buried treasure is really there.
And when he has dug it up, he will spend
the jewels and the gold, and last of all
he will find a bag of seeds and 
when he plants them they will
grow into a forest whose leaves
are a canopy of stars.
And one day
he will climb the tree,
and put his hand out to a star,
and the star will be his home.


Look at me...

Don't turn your head. Keep looking
at the bandaged place. That's where
the light enters you.

And don't believe for a moment
that you're healing yourself...

By Ahimsa

Karma is the law of cause and effect which governs all phenomena.
We are all where we find ourselves because of karma -
because of actions we have performed in the past.
The universe is such a balanced instrument that any act
immediately sets corrective forces into action.
