Veil of Ego

First, we conceive the “I” and grasp onto it.

Then we conceive the “mine” and cling to the material world.

Like water trapped on a waterwheel, we spin in circles, powerless.

I praise the compassion that embraces all beings.

~ Chandrakirti

There are moments…

There are moments when one feels free from one’s own identification with human limitations and inadequacies. At such moments one imagines that one stands on some spot of a small planet, gazing in amazement at the cold yet profoundly moving beauty of the eternal, the unfathomable; life and death flow into one, and there is neither evolution nor destiny; only Being. – Albert Einstein
