Without any split or break, or separate parts.
The idea of 'Maya' is itself the great delusion;
Duality and Non-duality are merely concepts of the mind.~ Dattatreya's Song of the Avadhutby Jacque Collier on FacebookTo protect what is wild is to protect what is gentle. Perhaps the
wilderness we fear is the pause within our own heartbeats, the silent
space that says we live only by grace. Wilderness lives by this same
grace.~ Terry Tempest WilliamsFalling asleep watching the waxing moonweave so freely through the dark clouds ~I later dream I am forever ravelled in its wake.White Line Reflected In Wind-Waved Water, Nightfall At The Boathouse, Far Away Point, Maryland

conscious of our treasures.~ Thornton Wilder
I have lived with several Zen masters – all of them cats.~ Eckhart TolleIn this passing momentBy Shodo Harada Roshi
(1940 - )"In the presence of Sangha, in the light of Dharma,
in oneness with Buddha -- may my path
to complete enlightenment benefit everyone!"In this passing moment karma ripens
and all things come to be.
I vow to choose what is:
If there is cost, I choose to pay.
If there is need, I choose to give.
If there is pain, I choose to feel.
If there is sorrow, I choose to grieve.
When burning -- I choose heat.
When calm -- I choose peace.
When starving -- I choose hunger.
When happy -- I choose joy.
Whom I encounter, I choose to meet.
What I shoulder, I choose to bear.
When it is my death, I choose to die.
Where this takes me, I choose to go.
Being with what is -- I respond to what is.This life is as real as a dream;
the one who knows it can not be found;
and, truth is not a thing -- Therefore I vow
to choose THIS dharma entrance gate!
May all Buddhas and Wise Ones
help me live this vow.
Accept - then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if
you had chosen it. Aways work with it, not against it. Make it your friend
and ally, not your enemy. This will miraculously transform your whole
life.~ Eckhart Tolle
Look, it cannot be seen -- it is beyond form.
Listen, it cannot be heard -- it is beyond sound.
Grasp, it cannot be held -- it is intangible.
These three are indefinable;
Therefore they are joined in one.From above it is not bright;
From below it is not dark;
An unbroken thread beyond description.
It returns to nothingness.
The form of the formless,
The image of the imageless,
It is called indefinable and beyond imagination.Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.Knowing the ancient beginning is the essence of Tao.- Lao-tzuTao Te Ching
