The Silver Thread – Iron Bird Dharma; Dharma for the New Era


There’s a silver thread, literal or figurative, that ties together all the paths in all the worlds. Not unlike Zen’s Searching for the Ox, we search high and low for commonality, for clarity, and for understanding in the many events our complex lives. Over time, and with increasing awareness, we see that everything becomes a possible source of guidance, leading us closer to the inner wisdom which was there all along. With that, the countless innumerable paths dissolve into the pathless path, the empty mirror of Self.
