A Dharma Destination
“The purpose of a spiritual discipline is to give us a way to stop the war, not by our force of will, but organically, through understanding and gradual training.”
- Jack Kornfield, A Path with Heart
Many Paths One Truth
“There are many paths to the top of the mountain, but the view is always the same."
- Chinese proverb
Gone But Not Forgotten
RKL: I try to raise conscious awareness daily to realize that every single interaction I have with other people is a chance for enlightenment.
Me: What is the most important thing that people need to know about the Dharma Center?
RKL: I would like people to know that the Dharma Center is an inclusive, welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for anyone wanting to practice the Buddhist tradition, either by itself, or in conjunction with another spiritual path.
Me: What do you think people are looking for in religion or spirituality today? Why?
RKL: I think most people are either looking to maintain a healthy, relevant, spiritual connection or to reestablish one.
Me: What does "life's a journey, not a destination" mean to you?
RKL: I think that hooks back into the earlier mentioning of the continued development of awareness and appreciation.
Me: If you could change one thing in our world today, what would it be? How?
RKL: For me, it's not about focusing on anything changing (because that will occur naturally in this realm). It's more of a wish for all people to acknowledge interconnectedness, and develop insight and compassion to deal with the changes in a healthy manner.
May you be well in body and mind.
And may you be filled with peace.
