Peace comes when our hearts are open like the sky,
vast as the ocean.

The Wisdom of Insecurity

The Wisdom of Insecurity

We can plan, we can care for, tend and respond. But we cannot control. Instead we take a breath, and open to what is unfolding, where we are. This is a profound shift, from holding on, to letting go.

Heart Wisdom – Ep. 132 – Finding Your Own Goodness

Part of the process of meditation and spiritual practice is to come to rest in our being, to a center that is unshakable. It doesn’t mean that it doesn’t move in the wind, but that there’s a place in the heart where we’ve touched an ability to feel all the things of life, of death, of birth—and to accept every one of those.

Mindfulness and Compassion

Compassion is most real in the particulars, in our response to the immediacy of this moment. Every conscious act contributes to the healing of the whole.
