ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.

need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,

An excessive need-for-approval
is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.

And then meditation is not separate from life.

Looking at a sunset, just for a second
you forget your separateness:
you are the sunset.

you have come back to your separate,
enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.

The River of Life has no meaning, no good, no bad,
no better, no worse, no love, no hate, no fear, no anger, no joy.
The River of Life has no judgment, no expectation.
The River of Life just IS. There is nothing to do.
There is nothing to say.
There is nothing to think.
There is nothing to feel.
The River just flows. The River is the source of all nourishment -
the source of all obstacles.
The River is the source of all life - the source of all death.
The River is the source of all joy - and the source of all sorrow.
Yet the River has no joy - and the River has no sorrow.
The River is just the River.
One can flow harmoniously with the River -
or one can struggle fearfully against the River -
and the River just flows.
One can accept the River - or one can deny the River -
and the River just flows.
One can worship the River of Life - or one can curse the River of Life -
and the River just flows. There is nothing to do - and the River flows.
There is nothing to say - and the River flows.
There is nothing to think - and the River flows.
There is nothing to feel - and the River flows.
The River flows - and all else is our drama.
The River flows - and all else is our invention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

who think with their own mind
and feel with their own heart.

the place we belong - the place of our loved ones.

but, in the long run, it does.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

From far beyond this life,
I hear the call.
From place beyond all place,
I feel the call.

I know the call.
From one before all ones,
I am the call.
