So many words, useless thoughts; 10,000 dharmas in your face. Google+ is playing silly buggar; can't join the hangout. It's ok to be fat, overweight, diseased, depressed, happy, exuberant, mellow. All the while, the kids had a good week-end. Someone said, "It's ok to be not ok!" It doesn't matter. Traffic sounds abound. The cardinal doesn't care. He sings a song each morning. In the now cool air it carries for city blocks. A train hurtles from the under-river tunnel bursting into a rainbow of sound. A new hibiscus bud blossoms; astounding beauty. Death awaits; life is good. Four hours of cutting brush makes every muscle scream for relief. A hot bath suffices. A full night's sleep rejuvenates. Life is good; death awaits. Is there an echo here? Inside, the world is vast. A heart beats in the palm of a hand. There are clouds in the sky but they move quickly and silently. None of the useless words or countless dharmas. A gong sounds; it's all good!
Have a great day. gassho,
