Saturday morning's playlist: Fire
The wound is the place where the light enters you.
There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Saturday afternoon's playlist: Water
All things arise, suffer change, and fade away. This is their nature.
When you know this, you become still. It is easy.
The Ashtavakra Gita
May we live like the lotus, at home in the muddy water.
Sunday morning's playlist: Air/Ether
