compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion

“[IT] IS ONE THING to study the texts ..

  OR to DO various practices or come on a retreat to learn the Dharma
  tradition, but the most important kind of communion is to experience it;
  to embody it and discover it in your own heart, mind and being. Of course,
  the essence of the Buddhas teaching is that of liberation, that the heart
  and mind can be free wherever we are and under whatever circumstance.
  To be liberated in this human incarnation means also to recognise that
  EveryTHING IS BORN out of EMPTINESS. Through creative spirit, we can
  move and shape our lives. Not always our circumstances, we have our   
  karma, we were born into a certain culture and body, but given the palette
  you can do anything; that’s really the Third Noble Truth – the non-clinging
  of becoming the loving-awareness that is free.

  Our education is a very rote system, it doesn’t really teach us to think or
  be ourselves so well. WE FORGET that CREATIVITY IS what WE ARE.
  WE ARE loving-awareness EXPRESSED through THIS LIFE.”
