On Duality

Because suffering is impermanent, 
that is why we can transform it.
Because happiness is impermanent, 
that is why we have to nourish it.

On Duality

How does a part of the world leave the world?
How can wetness leave water?

Do not try to put out a fire by throwing on more fire.
Do not wash a wound with blood.

No matter how fast you run, 

your shadow more than keeps up.
Sometimes it's in front.

Only full, overhead sun diminishes your shadow.

But that shadow has been serving you.
What hurts you blesses you.
Darkness is your candle.
Your boundaries are your quest.

On Healing

Last night as I was sleeping
I dreamed - blessed illusion -
That I had a beehive 
Here inside my Heart
And the Golden Bees
Were making
White combs and sweet honey
From my old failures.

On Courage

The bravery is believing in yourself.

And that nobody can teach you.
