Two realms

There are two realms in spirituality, not one. We long for a vision of our destiny and equally for a way to carry out that vision as a gift to others.



"Center of all centers, core of cores,
almond self-enclosed and growing sweet-
all this universe, to the furthest stars
and beyond them is your flesh, your fruit.

Now you feel how nothing clings to you;
Your vast shell reaches into endless space,
And there the rich, thinck fluids rise and flow.
Illuminated in your infinite peace,

A billion stars go spinning through the night,
blazing high above your head.
But in you is the presence that
will be, when all the stars are dead."
-- Rainer Maria Rilke



"Trust is the crucial test of all creatures. Trustworthiness is the true measure of self-mastery, character."


God becomes the devil

Look for God outside your own mind, and God becomes the devil.
Dogen Zenji


Love Is

Love Is. At the center of Love is the Fire of Life. At the center of the Fire of Life is the Flow of Breath. At the center of the Flow of Breath is Truth. At the center of Truth is Love. Love Is


teaching others

"In seeking knowledge, the first step is silence, the second listening, the third remembering, the forth practicing, and the fifth - teaching others."
-- Ibn Gabirol


longer and quieter

"I discovered the middle path of stillness within speed, calmness within fear and I held it longer and quieter than ever before"
-- Steve McKinney when he broke the world downhill ski record.
