that there is so much more to this life than we can ever know that
itís entirely pointless to try to know much at all. Know your
letters, your colors, your numbers. Be able to recognize the faces
of a few caring people and thatís about it
I believe that the creature pleasures are
generally the best pleasures. If a lizard or a frog or an ocelot or a spider
monkey wouldnít enjoy it, itís probably too complicated and not worth the
I believe in the union of apparent opposites.
Female and male. East and west. Good and bad. Us and them.
I believe in the holy flow of the liquid
I believe in light and sight and insight and
I believe that the best poems are never written.
They are happening to each and every one of us all day long. The most finely
crafted poem pales before a single moment of mindful human experience.
I believe that art does nothing more and nothing
less than to remind us of the sacred places inside.
I believe in questions without answers and
answers without questions.
I believe that we can choose gratitude,
innocence, and reverence.
I believe that we are all much, much more than
we think we are, and that weíll all realize that, in or out of time.
I believe that it doesnít matter what we do,
but that what we do matters.
I believe that we see with other eyes and hear
with other ears.
I believe that joy is inevitable.
I believe that everything important is available
to us right now.
I believe that just being here is more amazing
than anything I can think of.
May we all recognize peace and light and love,
now and forever.
