to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

Looking at a sunset, just for a second
you forget your separateness:
you are the sunset.
That is the moment when you feel the beauty of it.

you have come back to your separate,
enclosed entity of the ego.
Now the mind is speaking.

Let children walk with Nature,
let them see the beautiful blendings

of our blessed star,
and they will learn that death
is stingless indeed,
and as beautiful as life.
