To arrive at such a place is no small feat. It seems that we are not delivered here by chance, but somehow through destiny. Making it to such a place would not often be described as ‘easy.’ There were likely hurdles to leap over, storms to pass through, and perhaps even the mirage of many barriers to dissipate.
Yet, here we are. The subtle winds of dharma have brought us together. For that, I am grateful.
It is possible that the lives of each and every one of us are intertwined through a transcendent web. What we do to each other, we do to ourselves. The smallest offering may send ripples across the net of time and space, affecting that which is beyond the scope of normal perceptions. To access that which is beyond our ‘normal perception’ is, in part, why we are here. To experience the interconnectedness of all things is the ground on which compassion rests. If we are to arouse the subtle heart of compassion, we must learn to reside within that space.
It is a space of wonder and magic, a space where truth is seen and clarity is gained. It is a space where courage is born, conviction is strengthened, and a mission is ignited.
To warrior for something, or someone, is an extension of interconnectedness. When we warrior for the happiness of others, we warrior for ourselves. To transmute our connectivity from the theoretical into the experiential is the task at hand. Only then, may we draw the true sword of Dharma Warriorship.
And so it begins, the practice of the Dharma Warrior. The work of a lifetime. A simple offering of our lives that may reverberate through time and space, affecting our lives forward and behind, into the past and the future.
It is with love and gratitude that we welcome you and give thanks for your being here. May this time together add love to your life and to all the lives you are connected to.
