 Fundamental Steadiness:                                      As all things change and fall away, there has to be a fundamental steadiness underneath it all.

This steadiness is powerful as it is a reliable source of safety.

This is what beings recognize as your true nature and genuine character.  It is visible and trustable.

It is a solid example of one’s intention, one’s heart, and the dedication required to make it real in the world. 

Then, when steadiness combines with consistency there is a strength that is obvious and powerful beyond words.

It is rooted in devotion, compassion, and kindness yet requires strength and loving perseverance. It is very powerful to observe, and it inspires others to believe in their own potential and have faith in the fundamental goodness of things. This is very important.

Beings want and need to trust and believe in the goodness of humankind, again.... And so...      Steadiness and Goodness need to live together in the same practice.            

This is the "medicine " that is sorely needed right now...and always

 Cutting Through:

There is so much misdirected energy and deception going on in this world that beings actually start to believe that crap...


Half the world says they're enlightened, and the other half creates all the suffering without owning it and without even blinking an eye.

This is the Darkside of manipulation and deception. These are the demons of toxic government, society, and social media. No one has the willingness to be wrong and see the truth clearly.

Most beings don't have any self-discipline and their lack of consideration for others is appalling.

At some point, there must be a reckoning and a purification.

But...first, there must be clarity about what is true and proper and what is false and unjust.

However, The Revolution first starts on the inside... Often, we have to cut through the bullshit, get a little messy and handle the obvious and uncomfortable.

Thats Radical.

That's what the true realized Masters did back in their day. They came to terms with the harsh reality of what was and were fully present for what was to come.

Thats Revolutionary.

That's enlightenment...and then some.

 The Path to Peace:                                              Everything in the world has a cause and a reaction starting from somewhere. (causes and conditions). As we view the outer world and its situations they all come from some circumstances (root cause) and beings' response to them. Our responses either come from a deep place of understanding and clarity or from a place of fear and attachment.

There is nothing in this world that we ourselves don't have a part in. 

Good or bad, all decisions and actions arise from our belief systems and are influenced by the inner lens with which we view things. So the the path of balance and benefit is to see things clearly and act as skillfully and gracefully as possible in the middle of it all. This comes from the inner work of the heart and a healthy benevolent spirit. 

Until inner transformation happens all external actions will be based on fear, misunderstanding, and confusion. 

The Path to Peace is based on the Inner Freedom of the heart and mind.  May we all be kind to each other on the way.

 The Mind…

The mind is a tricky animal...

It seduces you with future fantasy, binds you with past memories, and steers you away from the awareness, absorption, and appreciation of the present moment..

It distances you from the pureness of the Heart, the vitality of spirit, and the higher intelligence of your body...

It is NOT consciousness....and the mind is NOT you...

when one sits in stillness one can see it clinging, projecting, and creating stories that don't even exist yet...

The Heart feels and absorbs...

the spirit activates and mobilizes...

the mind creates and distracts...

Do not be fooled by the difference

 Cutting Through Delusion / The Blade of Clarity:

Do Not be fooled. There is NO one magic formula or secret.  

Right Mind, Right Attitude, and Right Effort are the essentials.  

Self-respect contains Self Discipline and action is the change agent.  

Do not avoid these truths.             

Consistent effort and Clarity develop focus and keep the mind steady.

That is the alchemical engine....

Then...Working consistently from the Heart and treating all beings with respect and love is the whole package.

Don't overthink everything, stay steady, and don't expect the unreasonable....                                                   Your happiness does NOT live in self-criticism

 The Essence of the “Boddhisattva Path”          (in real-time ) 

The Bodhisattva is a being who has vowed to bring about the relief of sufferings for all beings, not just themselves. So, when they achieve enlightenment, and it is time for them to ascend to the Heavens they make a conscious, intentional decision to stay on Earth to achieve their goal.

Bodhisattvas manifest where they are needed in many forms. They might be bums or babies, friends or strangers, teachers, firemen or used car salesmen. They might be you. Whenever needed help is given without selfish attachment, there is the hand of the bodhisattva. When we see and hear the suffering of others and respond to that suffering, WE are the hands of the bodhisattva.

People understand the Dharma [ the divine instructions ] as best they can, and as understanding grows, limitations are discarded and flexibility of application develops using the essential core principles. We're all works in progress.

Our actions and behaviors are the examples others will follow. Not our words 

May I be a source of safety to all those without protection
