Today's Daily Dharma: Refuge in the Night

Refuge in the Night
Intimacy is a principal benefit of reclaiming the twilight hours of each day: intimacy with nature, intimacy with others, intimacy with ourselves. Darkness is good therapy. It unwinds the springs that daylight tightens and opens doorways onto eternity that are made invisible by light.
—Clark Strand, "Finding a Shallow Cave"

Via Sri Prem Baba: Flor do Dia- Flor del Día - Flower of the Day 04/10/2015

“Movidas pelo medo e pelo ódio inconscientes, as pessoas se encontram, mas não sabem o que de fato querem umas das outras. Elas estão buscando algo, mas não sabem o que é. Elas ignoram que estão procurando uma parte de si mesmas no outro, e se iludem com a ideia de que o outro é a fonte da felicidade. Mas essa ideia é a fonte do sofrimento nas relações.”
“AMAR E SER LIVRE - As bases para uma nova Sociedade.”

“Movidas por el miedo y por el odio inconsciente, las personas se encuentran, pero no saben lo que realmente quieren unas de otras. Ellas están buscando algo, pero no saben qué es. Ignoran que están buscando una parte de sí mismas en el otro, y se ilusionan con la idea de que el otro es la fuente de la felicidad. Pero esta idea es la fuente del sufrimiento en las relaciones.”
“AMAR Y SER LIBRE - Las bases para una nueva Sociedad.”

“Motivated by fear and unconscious hatred, we interact with one another without even knowing what we truly want from each other. We are all searching for something, but we don’t know what it really is. We forget that we are actually looking for a part of ourselves in the other, and we delude ourselves into thinking that the other is our source of happiness. This very idea is the source of suffering in our relationships.”

Today's Daily Dharma: Embrace Imperfection

Embrace Imperfection
My practice is teaching me to embrace imperfection: to have compassion for all the ways things haven’t turned out as I’d planned, in my body and in my life; for the way things keep falling apart, and failing, and breaking down. It’s less about fixing things and more about learning to be present for exactly what is.
—Anne Cushman, "Living from the Inside Out"
