Words of Wisdom for June 22, 2024

Dear Friends:
Embodying ourselves fully is key to developing the capacity to meet this moment. The entirety of this precious human body is the instrument of perception the Awakened Mind has to experience itself through physicality. Turning our attention to the nature of our own mind, feeling our bodies completely awake and aware, facilitates the recognition of the timeless, nonconceptual ground within which all experience arises. When this recognition begins to open, it empowers us in a way that nothing else will.

– Margarita Loinaz, Spirit Rock

Words of Wisdom for June 20, 2024

Dear Friends:
“Gratitude is vulnerability. I’ve had the honor of sitting across from people who have survived tremendous things. No matter what the trauma was, they said: “when those around me are grateful for what they have, I know they understand the magnitude of what I’ve lost”. So often we’re afraid to be grateful for what we have because we think it’s insensitive to those who have lost. However, I think gratitude, in some ways, is healing for people.”

Words of Wisdom for June 13, 2024

Dear Friends:
Writers and the War Against Nature

For a writer or an artist to become an advocate for nature, he or she must first stumble into some connection to that vast world of energies and ecologies. Because I was brought up in a remote rural district, instead of having kids to play with, I had to entertain myself by exploring the forest surrounding our farm, observing the dozens of bird species and occasional deer, fox, or bobcat; sometimes hunting, sometimes gathering plants that I could sell to herb buyers for a few pennies, and camping out alone for several days at a time. Heavy logging was going on in the nearby hills. Even as a boy I was deeply troubled by the destruction of the forests and the careless way that hunting, both of waterfowl and deer, was conducted.
