Sunday Topics for May

Theme: BEFRIENDING THE LIFE WE’VE BEEN GIVEN
“Let yourself look back on life with the questions: “What have I truly loved? What has drawn my soul aloft? What has mastered it and at the same time blessed it?” -Nietzsche
Let us enter the radiant flow of life and inhabit our moments with curiosity, fascination, gratitude and awe.

May 5    ONLY THE HEART CAN ENTER
The mind can lead us to the threshold of Wisdom, but only the heart can Enter. The mind weaves meaning like a Spider, but only the heart can leap into the Stream. We are given a mind to navigate Life, and we are given a heart to be Alive. (Zen saying)

May 12    TRUSTING LIFE TO GIVE US WHAT WE NEED
I never stop trusting that life will give me exactly what I need. It is then my privilege to work what I have been given. Reaping the blessings is the art of gratitude and trust.

May 19    NAVIGATING TROUBLE
What if in the midst of our troubles we are given the gift that we need? Every circumstance incubates the soul so it might germinate while we are here. By entering where we are, thoroughly, we see a way to navigate life.

May 26    THE REACH OF KINDNESS
The Dalai Llama has said that “My religion is kindness.” Kindness is the antidote to everything. It’s the kindness and wisdom we encounter beyond our fears that brings us together, that brings us alive.
