Dont Be Burden by Your Gift

“You cannot turn away. Your destinies are bound to the destinies of others.  You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it.  You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enought to sit down with its worst horror.  To seek enlightenment is to seek annihilation, rebirth, and the taking up of burdens.  You must come prepared to otuch and be touched by each and everything in heaven and hell” – Andrew Boyd

I am One with the universe and it hurts was the though I had before I fell asleep last night and dreamt of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje came to bless me in my dream; steady in your practice he said, readjust the compass of your heart and be ready to surrender to let go of everything in cultivation of your highest potential.  I woke up at 5am today to a quote by Andrew Boyd sent by a dear friend, with a message “don’t be burden by your gift’

I lay in bed listening to the sound of the Universe, the animals, the wind, the ocean, the trees..everything beats along with y own heart and because of that I need to protect it, love it and be the voice for it.
