Enduring & Real…

To look for a form or search 

for a 

sound

is to stumble down the

wrong path .

The wisdom that cannot be thought,

alone reveals that which

is enduring and

real…

Breathe in…

 

 

Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s

surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SRI_6386-L

 

 

See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the

non-elements.

 

 

JAN_5146-L

 

 

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.

 

 

 

SRI_6397-L

 

 

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 

elements.

 

 

 

 

JAN_5142-L

 

 

Man helps make the other elements possible.

 

( Words : Thich Nhat Hanh  )

Heart Wanders…

 

 

 Clouds heap upon clouds & it
         darkens…
        I keep gazing on the far away gloom
                                of the sky, & my

heart wanders wailing with the
restless mind.

Not the flower but the Fragrance…

 

You ask me ,

 

” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”

 

 

 

 

The world has never been created.

 

It has always been here ,

 

it is eternal.

 

 

 

There is no creator of the world :

 

God is not the creator of the world …

 

 

 

 

god is the

very creative energy of existence —

 

creativity rather than a creator.

 

 

 

He is not the poet but

 

 

the poetry…

 

 

 

Not the dancer

 

but the dance….

 

 

 

 

not the flower but

 

the fragrance…
