I can easily say this, because it is not happening right now: I am the cause of my own suffering. Always! And when I do experience suffering, it is because I am resisting what is–what has already been welcomed by awareness.

Does the tree struck by lightning complain or resist? It simply leafs out in the new season, not even aware of its new form of beauty and tenderness.

  1. Perfect reminder for me today. Holding fast to the perfect present moment in the midst of chaos and what looks like pain. A simple breath brings me into the peace that’s always present. Blessings to you

  2. I know that you are able to provide that breath for your family. Your presence must be an immense blessing. It surely has been for me!
    I hope that this resolves in the best way for everyone involved. I suppose, how could it not?
    With love,
