Every human has four endowments —
self-awareness,
conscience,
independent will,
and creative imagination.

These give us the ultimate human freedom…
The power to choose, to respond, to change.

Trees, The Stuff of Myths II   2 comments

Getty & Huntington 2011Bonsai Art — Image by kenne

Trees,

are worthy of reverence,
giving us a sense
of the unknown,
becoming the center
of our fascination.

Trees,

are holders of curiosity,
masked in the name
of wisdom,
facility of spirit,
carrying a person’s mind
past himself.

Trees,

are witness to happenings,
generating the stuff
of myths,
upon which we share
he essence and
power of becoming.

“Regarding Wave” In The Zen Garden   6 comments

Regarding Wave

The voice of the Dharma

       the voice

          now

A shimmering bell

       through all.

Every hill,    still.

Every tree alive. Every leaf.

All the slopes  flow.

       old woods, new seedlings,

       tall grasses plumes.

Dark hollows;  peaks of light.

  wind stirs    the cool side

Each leaf living.

       All the hills.

         The Voice

         is a wife

            to

         him still.
