The Only Freedom

IMG_1261

Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates
the spirit that the laws of humanity and the phenomena
of nature do not alter its course.

The Essential

Flowers of Love

Brother and Sister Running

The flowers of the field are the children of sun’s affection
and nature’s love; and the children of men are the flowers
of love and compassion.

Don’t Meddle with It

IMG_1232

Learning builds daily accumulation,
but the practice of the Way of spiritual integration
with the subtle essence of the universe
builds daily simplification.
Simplify and simplify, until all contamination
from relative, contradictory thinking is eliminated.
Then one does nothing yet nothing is left undone.
One who wins the world
does so by not meddling with it.
One who meddles with it loses it.

Lifetime to Lifetime

IMG_1230

Pleasures in life are like a flowing river. You float
away on them and are carried from lifetime
to lifetime. They pursue you like a hunter
pursues his prey. The cycle of birth, death, and
rebirth goes on and on. It is a long journey
for those who do not know the dharma.
