‘The practice of virtuous or wise actions begins with our deciding what we will return to matter what life brings to our way – joy, happiness, sadness, sorrow , or sickness. Buddhist teachings call this “taking refuge.” A place of refuge is a place of security and sanctuary, but more than just a haven of safety, it is also where we find the strength and energy to support us in living a happy life.’ (Deep Hope)
One thought on “Diane Eshin Rizzetto”
Taking refuge. Is my house built of sand or is my house built of stone? When the rain pours down and the winds lash about where will you take refuge? Because the rain will pour down and the winds will lash about. Better to be safe and secure in a clunky stone house than to be “looking sharp” in a sand castle.
