Truth, Beauty, Power: Finding Refuge in the (Sh*t)storm
The only thing we know for sure is that we don't know what will happen next. Our nervous systems aren't really trying to hear that, though. While groundlessness is our ultimate reality, it doesn't offer much in the way of shelter when the world is quite literally on fire. If this year has taught us anything, it's that we need places of refuge in ourselves and in the world where we can touch truth, enjoy beauty, and access the power that will sustain us in showing all the way up for liberation. Come reflect on the Buddha's teachings and build your shelter in the (sh*t)storm.
