This moment is pure blessing

Looking up into the sunset on a luminous autumn afternoon, we know that at any moment our world may come apart, we may fall in love in the most aching, excruciating way, or that we may be met with deep waves of the most tender feelings and sensations.

As we peer behind the veil and step into the mandala of the beloved, it becomes clear that, without our conscious knowing, we have taken a vow to enter into intimacy with all things. This moment is pure blessing.

Setting aside the ancient, habitual movement to change, transform, shift, or even "heal" our present experience, we make the unconditional commitment to space and to kindness, opening these precious hearts so that they may be polished by light.
