The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.
-Atisha (11th century Tibetan Buddhist master)
"When you long for someone to love you, a madness grows that shakes all the sense from the trees and the water and the earth. And nothing lives for you except the long, deep, bitter want, and this is what everyone feels from birth to death." -Denton Welch
I'm crying out for a life outside the matrix of numb efficiency. I want a better, a more meaningful way of life. I want people to see that life isn't about money, about property, it's about love and and friendship. The population groans for liberation, the echoes of that groan can be heard from the slums of Africa to the condos in Malibu. But no one does anything about it. I'm going to change that.
