In these last few years I have unwittingly taken on an adventure that akin to all the most thrilling tales if the adventurer only knew what was involved from the outset they would not have left the safety of home. And yet the adventure brings with it such experiences that they could never wish them away.
Driven by some kind of unrelenting force I have gathered new knowledge and qualifications in pursuit of a long held yearning to combine art, spirituality and healing. Now, as I watch this year flow through my finger tips like water I am beginning to hear and feel the call to settle and be still. Ah ha...she thinks..if I put the cup down, it will not spill.
Still there are final dissertations to write and a few more months to go but I can feel the beginning of the end.
In a small moment I stopped and allowed myself to paint - just a little one....
It has occurred to me that there may be nothing more beautiful than the deep, still wisdom that arrives in moments of great compassion for others. Suddenly our hearts meet the world, the universe and life itself. There is no space between the I and the We and a spontaneous joy arises .
Tulku's embody this compassionate wisdom - it is their love that brings them back to us in human form over and over. Their only desire is to help and teach so that all living things may be relieved from suffering.
