For fifteen years, I have published a weekly spiritual e-newsletter called Seeds. The idea is to sow seeds of spiritual thought in the reader. Here are some of the best—along with new commentary applying each Seed to the creation of exorbitant well-being.
Buddhists take the Three Refuges. They say, “I take refuge in the Buddha. I take refuge in the Dharma. I take refuge in the Sangha.” Last post, we took refuge in the Dharma.
You will remember that taking refuge is creating an environment where you are safe. Taking refuge in the Sangha is what sanctuary is all about. Sangha means community. To be blessed with a spiritual community within which to practice is indeed precious and very rare in this day and age of busyness.
It is the purpose of sanctuary to be a place (read: refuge) where you know you will always hear Yes in your life of spiritual seeking and finding. Listen closely, carefully and quietly for the Voice from your own inner sanctuary. I know you’ll hear Yes.
Sanctuary, like refuge, is where you make it. It might be at your kitchen table, or in your walk-in closet, or on a tuffet. You decide where you find sanctuary. The point is to find what works for your as sanctuary and use it. An empty sanctuary is no sanctuary at all.
