Sunday Quote: love casts out fear

Will visit  the small 12th Century church in the countryside this morning, where one can see this statue of Saint Francis meditating. He had an inner freedom, similar to this quote.  Things arise and pass away. We are the ones who make a big fuss over them.  There is no need to shut down or contract in fear.

When you realize emptiness,

there is no fear.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche

    1. Thanks Linda. One needs all the encouragement one can get in these days when we seem to be taking steps backwards, not forwards. The quote might help us to deal with what arises in the face of these realities, as it seemstands they will be with us for the foreseeable future. Karl
