Wind Rock Wave

Endlessly, one after the other,
The waves hurl themselves
And shatter into spume at its feet,
And disperse…

Its face and body are scored
With cuts and wounds,
But it stands intact,
Smiling, gazing far out
To sea…

Buddha’s Garden

Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.

Compassion is the radicalism of our time.

Choose to be optimistic, it feels better.

True change is within; leave the outside as it is.

~ Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama
