The Best Way to Protect Yourself.

LOVE!

Love does not mean the kind of intimate relationship that often comes with more than a few strings attached … not to mention the feeling of attachment itself!

Love at its deepest, and in its purest form, is the wellspring from which all goodness pours into the world. It is universal. It is unconditional. It is for everyone, and it is based in empathy and compassion, which is to say, the genuine desire to see others rid of their suffering.

By bathing ourselves in this kind of love, we also free ourselves from the entanglements of craving, desire and attachment, which means that this kind of love both purifies the self and heals the world.

Today, let’s reach for all-encompassing love, and please share if you feel moved to!

Doll Burning Ceremony

a morning just
before rain,
under a swelling grey sky
an incense dome enfolding
gauzy
hands brushing dreams to face
monks in procession in a
world of honour and
not forgetting

chanting, the souls of
the sweet dead and discarded
my bursting heart
listens to a mournful
purple elegy
little beings piling up below
on the pyre
readying for ascent
