Bodhissatva vows (Martin’s version):

Countless are living beings
I vow to row them all to the further shore

Countless are the poisons
I vow to purify them all

Countless are the teachings
I vow to understand them all

Countless are the blessings
I vow to bow my heart to them all

And though the road is endless
I vow to walk it to the very end

Yes though the road is endless
I vow to walk it to the very end

It’s what we bring to it. What shifts when we focus on creating a life of certainty? A life of certainty that whether you are…

When we make not-knowing an intentional action, the barriers that hold us back from true intimacy begin to dissolve, offering much deeper connection with each other, and with the entire universe.
