Enlightenment -

I come across this quote today, and sit in delight.

Anthony de Mello - Enlightenment is absolute cooperation with the inevitable.

Somehow that is something I can understand.   My sensing group has been working with Tonglen meditation.  Many of us do not find it an easy practice to breathe in pain and suffering and breathe out pain and suffering transformed, but one woman spoke of taking a "sky-pause".  She is embraced by the spaciousness of blue sky.

She quotes the Dalai Lama:

Dalai Lama.  “As you breathe in, cherish yourself.  As you breathe out, cherish all beings.”

That seams possibility for me.
