the treasure of the evening sky

Watching that magpie, 

does she feel this heat? 

I’ll go ask her. Midday, 

and not a breath of fresh air 



O suffering life, what right 

do you have to reward me 

with the treasure of the evening sky? 

And by what insolence do I accept it?


Placing all our hope on material development is clearly mistaken; the ultimate source of happiness is within us. 

 -Dalai Lama XIV 

Don't listen to those who stir you up. Don't listen to others who put you to sleep. Respect them all. Thank them all.Then remember, there is a bird singing only you can hear. 

 -Jack Kornfield
