Wall Photos So it seems the courage to die to what the personality and the old wounds invest… in when soul and gnosis are not looking, to stand without standing too firm amidst radical self- and other-honesty, to sit softly in the laps of love and vulnerability, to honor equally the needs of the other as sacred and separate from self’s. It is these acts that break open portals to soul and heart–without which conscious juicy love is damn near elusive. ~ La Flamme



Without opening the door,
you can open your heart to the world
Without looking out… your window,
you can see the essence of the Tao.
The more you know,
the less you understand.
The Master arrives without leaving,
sees the light without looking,
achieves without doing a thing.
