The Wondering Way of the Way

Eddie Two Hawks

buddhism[1]

Live in Joy, in love, even among those who hate.

Live in joy, in health, Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, in peace, Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

~

There is no fire like greed, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation, No sickness like hunger of heart, And no joy like the joy of freedom.

Health, contentment and trust Are your greatest possessions, And freedom your greatest joy.

Look within. Be still. Free from fear and attachment, Know the sweet joy of living in the way.

    I like this too:

    We join spokes together in a wheel,
    but it is the center hole
    that makes the wagon move.

    We shape clay into a pot,
    but it is the emptiness inside
    that holds whatever we want.

    We hammer wood for a house,
    but it is the inner space
    that makes it livable.

    We work with being,
    but non-being is what we use.
