A Quote by Alan Clements on acceptance and surrender

In one breath we are drowning in the despair of unmet expectations and in the next we're drinking a toast to the angel of destiny--pleading, fighting, compelled to surrender to the awe-filled-truth that we are clueless to who and what we are. Except, that we can enter this never-ending vastness-- reaching into the heart of each and every encounter --and give it our most human touch -- the warmth of honest communication.

A Quote by Alan Clements on life, consciousness, revolution, dharma, and freedom

The Dharma life is a daily reawakening to explore and map the Mystery. Turning our lives into an epic adventure, we blaze our own trails, even if it means defying social mores or breaking taboos that attempt to suppress and control our impulses. This revolution will not be won or lost in a meditation retreat, a city street, a living room, or a monastery alone. It will happen on the front lines of the human heart - that stormy region where good and evil, genius and madness, peace and war, battle for dominion over conscience, freedom, and love. When compromise, doubt, or hesitation no longer hold appeal, it is my belief that you will inevitably encounter a glimpse of the holy unexpected. You will begin listening to your instinct for freedom - what you really love - and leave the rest behind.
