2399Re: [VoicesOfThePhilosophersStone] Falling Upwards
- Jul 2, 2006What a poignant reminder to savour each moment. Love it, with a bursting heart, and yet without binding to it. The Buddhists call this non-attachment. What a challenge this is sometimes when there is so much beauty.thank you EricNancy
