When I say “awaken your heart,” I mean that you’re willing not to cover over the most tender part of yourself. Trungpa Rinpoche often talked about the fact that we all have a soft spot and that negativity and resentment and all those things occur because we’re trying to cover over our soft spot. That’s very positive logic: it’s because you are tender and deeply touched that you do all this shielding. It’s because you’re soft and have some kind of warm heart, an open quality, to begin with that you even start shielding. The Wisdom of No Escape And the Path of Loving-Kindness by Pema Chödrön, page 62

I am the breeze that kisses your cheek. I am the sun that warms your face. When you look at the purple evening sky, it is me. When you see a majestic mountain, it is me.
When the birds sweetly sing, it is my voice. When the water gently laps against the shore, it is my heartbeat.
I am the green grass against your feet. I am the refreshing shade of summer.
In the stars, you see my eyes. In the blue sky, you see my body.
Feel the air that surrounds you, I am there.
Feel the love in your heart, I am there. ... See MoreSee Less
Be careful with a man’s heart. It is a precious thing. Vulnerability lives there in equal measure to courage. Let him show you. Hold him there. Be openness. Be space. Be acceptance. Be love. When he has hopes, say, “Tell me more,” When he has fears, say, “Tell me more.” Let your body be a cradle. When he opens, he may have tears. Welcome each one. Kiss them. When he is weary, say, “Come, put your head in my lap I will stroke your hair and love you.” When he is brave, shine your eyes at him and let him see your pride. Open your heart to him Trust him to feel it. When he loves you, really loves you, surrender. When he is handsome, which is every day, kiss him tenderly, with love. Then lingeringly, with deep passion. Then more. More. More. Know this: His heart is yours. There is no difference. There is no difference. When he gives it to you, treat it like a treasure. There is no difference. <3

Look at what you have, instead of what you have lost. Because it’s not what the world takes away from you that counts; it’s what you do with what you have left.
Don’t sit around feeling sorry about your circumstances or how others have treated you. Instead, take responsibility for your role in life, work on changing what can be changed, and keep in mind that life isn’t always easy or fair. ... See MoreSee Less
Fall in love with the sacred mess of your life - the shattered dreams, the broken promises, the unexpected sorrows and joys, all those hoped-for tomorrows that never arrived, the most beautiful plans that never came to fruition. Sanctify the inconsistency and the wildness of the present moment. Bless this imperfect, unpolished, uncontrollable and spontaneous instant of existence with your loving attention. Dignify today with gratitude, even if you have to do it through a broken heart. Begin again, each Now. - Jeff Foster <3

In a time that would have us believe there is always more to strive for, more to accumulate, more enlightenment to reach – the most radical stance we can take is enoughness. What if we quit trying to be spiritual and aspired to be human instead? What if there is nothing to fix because we are already whole? What if there was no time to prove ourselves, because we're consumed with marveling at life? What if there is no reason to hold back our gifts, because they are meant to be given? What if every morsel, every glance, every moment and every breath is a miracle of enough? ~ Toko-pa Turner: Belonging <3
Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. ~ W. Somerset Maugham <3

In this learning experience called life, there are things that happen that are difficult. It helps a lot to remember that there is always an answer greater than the problem we are experiencing.
We sometimes feel that we have made a mistake and we don’t like the results. Nevertheless, the proper thinking about the 'problem' we have access to the power to receive a useful answer.
Wherever you are right now, take a deep breath and know your greatest answer is seeking to emerge through you.

It has to end, you know. The self-hatred. The collective shaming. The disdain for other. The emotional armor. The buried pain. The displaced humans. The misplaced kindness. The repressed trauma. The fake positivity. The meaningless materialism. The forgotten heart. We’re all tired of these patterns. We aren’t built to carry them. Never were. They are perverting and distorting us. They’re too heavy for our tender hearts. It has to begin, you know. The self-love. The collective healing. The love for other. The emotional release. The liberated pain. The welcomed humans. The perpetual kindness. The honored story. The authentic feeling. The meaningful purpose. The open heart. We are ready to surrender these patterns to a deeper love. Of self. Of other. Of Earth. It’s why we are here. To rejoice in our time together, on our beautiful planet home. It’s time to lay down our weapons and welcome every precious human life into our arms like a new born. Every human cradled in compassion and kindness. Every human honored as a true reflection of the Divine. Every human loved like our life depends on it. Because it does. We are lost without each other. It's time. <3 jeff brown <3
