Inuit Traditional Song

September 25, 2013

I think over again my small adventures, my fears, those small ones that seemed so big, all those vital things I had to get and to reach, and yet there is only one great thing; to live and see the great day that dawns, and the light that fills the world.

I want first of all to be at peace with myself.
I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention,
A central core to my life that will enable me
To carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can.
I want, in fact, to borrow from the language of the saints :
To live ‘in grace’ as much of the time as possible.
I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense.
By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual,
Of which can be translated into outward harmony.
I am seeking perhaps what Socrates asked for
In the prayer from the Phaedrus when he said,
“May the outward and inward man be One.”
I would like to achieve a state of inner spiritual grace
From which I could function and give
As I was meant to in the eye of God.

Sutta Nipata

September 11, 2013

The one who wanders independent in the world,
free from opinions and viewpoints,
does not grasp them and enter
into disputations and arguments.

As the lotus rises on its stalk
unsoiled by the mud and the water,
so the wise one speaks of peace and
is unstained by the opinions of the world.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

Ignorance can be compared to a dark room in which you sleep. No matter how long the room has been dark, an hour or a million years, the moment the lamp of awareness is lit the entire room becomes luminous.

You are that luminosity. You are that clear light.

Throw yourself like a seed.

Shake off this sadness and recover your spirit.

Sluggish you will never see the wheel of fate

that brushes your heel as it turns going by.

I have come to drag you out of yourself and take you in my heart. I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had and lift you like a prayer to the sky.

May my life be one of gratitude and joy. May I never become the story of past injustices done to me or my people, but surviving and thriving despite injustices done to me and my people. May I live a life of healing and may I wake up seeing the world anew each day. May I always remember that I am taken care of, watched over and loved. May my life be a song and a memory of love when it is over.

What you do with what you have been given in life is entirely up to you. You are free to move in any direction you choose, at any time you like. Keep in mind that once you start the journey you can change your mind about the direction in which you want to go.

May you awaken to the mystery of being here
and enter the quiet immensity of your own presence.
May you have joy and peace in the temple of your senses.
May you receive great encouragement when new frontiers beckon.
May you respond to the call of your gift and find the courage to follow its path.
May the flame of anger free you from falsity.
May warmth of heart keep your presence aflame and may anxiety never linger about you.
May your outer dignity mirror an inner dignity of soul.
May you take time to celebrate the quiet miracles that seek no attention.
May you be consoled in the secret symmetry of your soul.
May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven around the heart of wonder.
