integration

To eat when you eat and sleep when you sleep means to be completely present in all your actions, with none of the distractions of ego to stop you from being there. This is integration.

in my heart

Since pure awareness of nowness is the real buddha, in openness and contentment I found the Lama in my heart. When we realize this unending natural mind is the very nature of the Lama, then there is no need for attached, grasping, or weeping prayers or artificial complaints. By simply relaxing in this uncontrived, open, and natural state, we obtain the blessing of aimless self-liberation of whatever arises.

those who love you

Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.

unafraid

Spirit
is life
It flows thru
the death of me
endlessly
like a river
unafraid
of becoming
the sea

attached

When we are really attached to something, it is very difficult to separate our mind from it.
