    The Shambhala teachings are like the food we eat and the air we breath……I don’t agree though that life is richer with a partner….life is incredibly rich and that has no qualifier…….when someone asks me if I have fallen in love my answer:
    “I am ALWAYS in love”….

    with respect and gratitude –

    Thank you for the reminder that communication is a reciprocal process–one that takes mindfulness, compassion and to a degree, genuine, (yet with loving kindness,) work or effort.

    For whatever reason, i find forgetting about effort is where I need to take my practice in order be more present to myself and to others.

    With love and gratitude, deb Trinle Palmo Houston
