Simplicity Now

Meditation can bring the mind to
utter simplicity. Being quiet within is
the ground of simplicity - even
when we have to perform
action in the world.

"All is one"; "feeling the
oneness of all things". Such
expressions are absolutely true.
It's as if you are
at the end of a great
journey - and you come to
a place where you can
absolutely rest in peace;
and all your desires are
fulfilled. You are here; and
that's enough. That's all
there is. That is it.
All is one. Peace. Peace.
Now - extending to
the "next" movement,
the moment no longer in time - so it's
only just this external, eternal moment.
Being mindful of all that
is. Which is just this.
All is one. Simple. Easy.
Ah! Yes! Here! Here
now and forever

"as it was in the
beginning is now
and forever"

Free Medical Care

These days there's much news about health care reform. I walked by one of the best examples of health care reform a week or so ago: the Berkeley Free Clinic. It been offering health care at no cost since 1969. I'm thankful to those who keep it going. There is light and love in this world.

The Green Bible

The Green Bible highlights, in green ink, over 1,000 Bible passages relating to the Earth and our responsibility to care for it. I picked up the hard copy edition in a bookstore. Fell in love with the green passages as well as the introductory articles. This is one of the most important publishing events of our time.
