  • 23. Sadness and joy are one in basic goodness.Don’t try to push out the nightmare,Don’t try to bring in the bliss.Just rest in basic goodness.
  • 24. “As the warrior proceeds on the path, he orshe may go through phases of intense fear.Frequently, such fear comes out of nowhere.It just happens; it just hits you.It may cause you to question everything inyourself: everything you have studied,everything you have learned and understood,as well as your general life situation.You feel the wretchedness of the worldaround you, as well as within yourself.” in Smile at Fear Chögyam Trungpa

  • 27. The basic wisdom of Shambhala is that in this world, as it is,we can find a good and meaningful human life that will also serve others. That is our richness. Chögyam Trungpa
  • 28. Who do I choose to be for this world?
  • 29. I stand among you as one who offers a small message of hope. . . there are always people who dare to seek on the margin of society, who are not dependent on social acceptance, not dependent on social routine, and prefer a kind of free-floating existence under a state of risk. Thomas Merton
  • 30. Again and again,some people in the crowdwake up .They have no ground in the crowdand they emerge according to broader laws. They carrystrange customs with them,and demand room for bold gestures.The future speaks ruthlessly through them.Ranier Maria Rilke
  • 31. Beyond Hope and FearDo not depend on the hope of results. When you are doing the sort of work you have taken on, essentially an apostolic work, you may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect.
  • 32. Beyond Hope and FearThe range tends to narrow down, but it gets much more real. In the end, it is the reality of personal relationships that saves everything. Thomas Merton
  • 33. Beyond Hope and FearAs you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself. And there too a great deal has to be gone through, as gradually you struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people.
  • 34. Per sever ance
  • 35. A knif e suspended over a hear t
  • 36. A Prophecy from the Hopi Nation EldersHere is a river flowing now very fast.It is so great and swift that there are those who will beafraid, who will try to hold on to the shore.They are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.Know that the river has its destination.The elders say we must let go of the shore.Push off into the middle of the river,and keep our heads above water.
  • 37. And I say see who is there with you and celebrate.At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally,least of all ourselves,for the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journeycome to a halt.The time of the lone wolf is over.Gather yourselves.Banish the word struggle from your attitude andvocabulary.
  • 38. All that we do now must be done ina sacred manner and in celebration.For we are the ones we have beenwaiting for.from the Hopi Elders
  • 39. A Path for WarriorsWe are grateful to discover our right work and happy to be engaged in it.We embody values and practices that offer us meaningful lives now.We let go of needing to impact the future.We accept that we cannot change the systems of power that haveemerged.We refrain from adding to the aggression, fear and confusion of thistime.We welcome every opportunity to practice our skills of compassion andinsight, no matter how challenging they may be.We resist seeking the illusory comfort of certainty and stability.
  • 40. • We delight when our work achieves good results yet let go of needing others to adopt our successes.• We understand that all problems have complex causes. We refrain from placing blame on any one person or cause, including ourselves and colleagues.• We are vigilant with our relationships, mindful to counter act the polarizing dynamics of this time.
  • 41. • We embody the confidence that humans can get through anything as long as were together.• We stay present to the world as it is with open minds and hearts, knowing this nourishes our gentleness, decency and bravery.• We care for ourselves as tenderly as we care for others, taking time for rest, reflection and renewal.• We are richly blessed with moments of delight, humor, grace and joy. We are grateful for these.
