“If you prefer smoke over fire then get up now and leave. For I do not intend to perfume your mind’s clothing with more sooty knowledge. No, I have something else in mind. Today I hold a flame in my left hand and a sword in my right. There will be no damage control today. For God is in a mood to plunder your riches and fling you nakedly into such breathtaking poverty that all that will be left of you will be a tendency to shine. So don’t just sit around this flame choking on your mind. For this is no campfire song to mindlessly mantra yourself to sleep with. Jump now into the space between thoughts and exit this dream before I burn the damn place down.” ~Adyashanti

Fiery girl

After searching downtown for someone in need to help them out with their downtown performance, this band found Rodney, who had been sleeping in the park for the last couple of nights. It took a little convincing to get him to play the part of hand percussions, but after they finally got him to agree Rodney said, “I guess it wouldn’t hurt to do it. In fact, I think I need to feel better than I’ve been feeling.” Such a beautiful way to elevate someone’s spirit. Love it!
