Dana: The Pali Word for Generosity

Awakening Truth has adopted the practice of “Dana” (giving) as both a spiritual practice and a practical way to meet the financial needs of the learning center. Dana is a Pali word for generosity. Throughout Buddhist history, spiritual teachings have been offered to people free of charge. This practice links the community of teachers, students, and centers through the spirit of generosity.

In the Eye of the Storm

 

Small Rock

 

In the Eye of the Storm

 

 

Feel it.

Let it in.

Breathe the reality of dreamer’s dreams taken from them. Living here.

Told they have to leave, return to a place they have never been.

 

Feel it.

Let it in.

Flood waters, structures and lives torn asunder first with Harvey then Irma.

 

Feel the heat waves torch

The fires burning up land, and homes

Leaving ash where communities and animals lived.

 

Feel it.

Let it in.

White Supremacists hate

 

I quiver and shake.

Mind spins with ideas

Collapses under the weight

 

Embedded in the horror

An invitation

 

Breathe

Breathe into sacrum

Ride the breath with the belly

 

Time to hand over

Lifting up

Not holding on

Transformation

 

Breathe it into the pervasive where it can be transformed

It’s not yours or mine to own

 

Open to Big Mind

Be Zero

Be everything

Return to torus

 

Horrors are held

 

The anchor

The Rock

Love

Awareness

Breath

Community

We’re alone in this together
