|A Cottage by the Sea||
When our lives are active and occupied in the name of doing good, there is little space for violence and doing harm.
Suddenly I realized that Quietude is indeed Joy,
And I felt that my life has abundant leisure.
Wang Wei (699-759
Dive deep, O mind
into the ocean of Divine Beauty.
You will discover a new gem instant after instant.
When you’re not sitting across from someone, you’re sitting across from the world.
You stopped because this moment is unique. Because never again will you see exactly what you are seeing now. Because never again will you experience exactly what you are experiencing now.
Here is this body are the sacred rivers, here are the sun and moon, as well as the pilgrimage places.
I’m a visitor, passing through. I’ve never liked being a travel: I take up residence.
