The love that we start with.



The powers of a poet 

Are immense. 

Why, I can fit the entire earth 

In the body of my poem. 

Every rock, every grain 

Of sand, every drop of water. 

I capture them all, 

And I deliver them to you, 

Dear reader.

We rest 

In the love 

We are blessed 

With 

We rest 

In the love 

That we nest 

With 

Open your heart 

To the love 

That we start 

With

Beyond random acts of kindness comes perpetual kindness.

-B. D. Schiers


To cut through the mind’s clinging, it is important to understand that all appearances are void, like the appearance of water in a mirage. Beautiful forms are of no benefit to the mind, nor can ugly forms harm it in any way.

-Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche


Be true to your teeth and they won't be false to you.
