"I found love at Whole Foods Market...
All I wanted was some cashew butter and kombucha tea, but i also had another joyous discovery. This was at the whole foods market in California. We were on the way to the retreat center and I was in a timezone change induced haze, when I found myself lingering at the checkout. There it was- I finally got to see my article in the August edition of Lion's Roar- an issue devoted to *Love* This article meant alot to me- the inspiration for it came from a translation I was doing of Patrul Rinpoche's 'Drama in the Lotus Garden.' Here's a favorite passage from the article...
'This practice goes against our usual self-protective instinct. Yet it turns out that when we contemplate the suffering of others and open our hearts further, it actually gives us more strength. It gives us purpose and endurance. Opening our hearts awakens our intrinsic courage because our compassion and natural heroism are connected.'"

A while ago, we posted a shot of this note in the Lion’s Roar office kitchen. The note turned out to be controversial, garnering a slew of anonymous responses. Here, you can see the final word, posted above the original comment. It’s an excerpt from a teaching by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, “Conguering Fear”:
“We run up against our hesitation to get fully into things all the time, even in seemingly insignificant situations. If we don’t want to wash the dishes right after we’ve eaten, we may tell ourselves that we need to let them soak. In fact we’re often hoping that one of our housemates will clean up after us. On another level, philosophically speaking, we may feel completely tuned into the warrior’s world. From that point of view, we think that we can quite safely say, “Once a warrior, always a warrior.” That sounds good, but in terms of the actual practice of warriorship, it’s questionable. “Once a warrior” may not always be a warrior if we disregard the beauty of the phenomenal world. We prefer to wear sunglasses, rather than facing the brilliance of the sunshine. We put on a hat and gloves to shield ourselves, fearing that we might get burned. The colourfulness of relationships, household chores, business enterprises and our general livelihood are too irritating. We are constantly looking for padding so that we don’t run into the sharp edges of the world. That is the essence of wrong belief. It is an obstacle to seeing the wisdom of the Great Eastern Sun, which is seeing greater vision beyond our own small world.”
