Honoring Complexity, Being Rooted in Simplicity, by Richard Powell

 Reading this beautiful essay today, I took a deep, long, relaxing breath and just let it out slowly.  I read these words over and over and they have become a new talisman to me, a great truth in simple words:   "..three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect."  ♡.

 

Why I Make Movies, by Mickey Lemle

"Can you share an experience when the honest witness deep inside you tingled?"  Yesterday in a conversation with my mom, I was telling her what I believed was happening in a place I had never visited.  Yet based on listening, reading and watching, I came to a truth.  Actually, it felt more like I was gifted with a truth.  As I spoke, I felt "honest witness deep inside" agreed -- I felt a Presence, a chilling/warming, all-encompassing "yes, this is true" confirmation.  I don't usually feel that Presence unless I'm meditating.  It was startling and really awe-some to feel it while speaking from my heart.

 

Three Kinds of Laziness, by Tenzin Palmo

 I was recently given a beautiful truth during meditation that resonates with this:  "Explore the nuances of silence."  Facing now one of the worst things a parent must face, a missing child, I have been unable to meditate. I have been doing everything possible to find him, filling my days with "doing."  Thank you for this gentle reminder to take time be still again, to breathe out as well as in.

Who are you, really?, by Kosi

 Hi thank you so much! I am so sorry about the double posting.  I tried to copy and pasted the quote into my comment because it really spoke to my heart.  But I didn't see any text, so I didn't know it went through.  Again, apologies for any misunderstanding. This article is wonderful.  I hope I can do as well when my turn comes on Saturday.

 There is so much Truth here.  It's a bit hard to get my brain around it.  I only came to a glimpse of this Truth recently.  I spotted Ego, the storyteller in my head.  Ego spins nightmares and beautiful fantasies equally well.  I began to feel free when I told Ego to be quiet, and called it a liar.  My sacred self (connected with Source and with your sacred self) is where I go to find the Truth, now.  I still forget, but not as often.  This concept of attachment will take practice.  Thank you for this beautiful article.

You are already free and all that blocks your realization of that freedom is your own attachment to some thought of who you are. This thought doesn’t keep you from being the truth of who you are. You already are that. It separates you from the realization of who you are. - See more at: http://www.awakin.org/read/view.php?tid=1055#sthash.0wfDFr5h.dpuf
