“The Womb of Space… dwell within the silence, a light clear awareness… a foundational ‘place’… the zero-point… Each point is a singularity, akin to the ‘black holes’ of physical space.

…… Dynamics of Time and Space, and Sacred Dimensions of Time and Space, Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche

Into a blur of sound,
A cello,

It is the heart,
A beating warmth,
The body smiles,

A friend welcomes me back
By ringing a bell,
Beginning the day.

As a volunteer for the past several years, I've been curating the often TSK focused, CCI Facebook page at...
