watcher of the head? Try to meditate over it. Anger
comes: who is
watching? You know perfectly well that there is anger;
perfectly well that it is coming and growing, you know

*** "The hunger for love
is much more difficult
to remove than the
hunger for bread.
If you judge people,
you have no time
to love them." ***
Look at our brokenness.
We know that in all creation
Only the human family
Has strayed from the Sacred Way.
We know that we are the ones
who are divided
And we are the ones
Who must come back together
To walk in the Sacred Way.
Teach us love, compassion, and honor
That we may heal the earth
And heal each other. ***

"And this is the essence of wisdom
- to be in harmony with nature,
with the natural rhythm of the universe.
And whenever you are in harmony
with the natural rhythm of the universe
you are a poet, you are a painter,
you are a musician, you are a dancer.
A Zen Master, Ikkyu, a great poet, has said: I can see clouds a thousand
miles away, hear ancient music in the pines. This is what Zen is all about.
You cannot see clouds a thousand miles away with the logical mind. The
logical mind is like glass, too dirty, too covered with the dust of ideas,
theories, doctrines. But you can see clouds a thousand miles away with the
pure glass of intuition, with no thoughts - just pure awareness. The mirror is
clean and the clarity supreme.
