Christmas 2011

This is Christmas 2011 at my new home. Oh silent night, crispy cold, making the heart warm inside.

My entry to paradise.

Tea is a cup of life.
Why am I here? To help others?
Why are others here? To be helped?

The first bowl sleekly moistened throat and lips,
The second banished all my loneliness
The third expelled the dullness from my mind,
Sharpening inspiration gained
from all the books I've read.
The fourth brought forth light perspiration,
Dispersing a lifetime's troubles through my pores.
The fifth bowl cleansed ev'ry atom of my being.
The sixth has made me kin to the Immortals.
This seventh...
I can take no more.
- Lu Tung, Chinese Poet

Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

Be true to your work, your word, and your friends.

He that can have patience can have what he will.

It is never too late to be what you might have been. It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.

A state of mind

Mind is all that counts. You can be whatever you make up your mind to be.
More powerful than the will to win is the courage to begin.

Life is only a state of mind

I have three precious things which I prize and hold fast. The
first is gentleness; the second is economy; and the third is shrinking
from taking precedence of others.

With that gentleness I can be bold; with that economy I can be
liberal; shrinking from taking precedence of others, I can become a
vessel of the highest honour. Tao Te Ching ~ Lao-tzu

Wheresoever you go, ... go with all your heart.
The perfecting of one's self is the fundamental base of all progress and all moral development.
