Moments of silence

The past is already past.
Don’t try to regain it.
The present does not stay.
Don’t try to touch it.

From moment to moment.
The future has not come;
Don’t think about it
Whatever comes to the eye,
Leave it be.
There are no commandments
To be kept;
There’s no filth to be cleansed.
With empty mind really
Penetrated, the
Have no life.
When you can be like this,
You’ve completed
The ultimate attainment.

Hello Sas, my friend.

I visited your blog today to catch up on about a week's entries. Thank you for lifting my spirits. Your gentle touch with the camera combined with the words that we already know - but need frequent reminding because we forget - is such a gift. Have a great day!

A great day to you too my friend and thanks for sharing,

with love, Sas

Hi Sas...brilliant quote [I got it this time :)] and lovely shots. Thanks for the gentle reminder. I have yet to not do this "The future has not come; Don’t think about it; Beforehand." :)). Some day perhaps...there I go thinking about the future again :)) ..have a nice week.

Sas, I got all the paragraphs except the 5th one. Wow, now your poetry is truly food for thought! I love the pics, I have two spiderwort plants that are in bloom and was pleasantly surprised to see them here. I just bought a lot of annuals and perennials for my garden and your pics have surely inspired me to get started!!!

Sas said...

Hahaha dear Vani I had exactly the same thought (maybe some day...)

...but at least we are aware of it....that is the most important first step ;)

big hug to you and thanks for sharing,

with love, Sas

Sas said...

I instantly got an lovely vision of you working in your garden, surrounded by beautiful flowers :)

It gave me a warm feeling, thanks for sharing and take care,

with love, Sas

Sas, so sweet of you to have that vision of me :) I planted some large pots yesterday but it's raining a bit today :( I am so touched by your warmth and goodness of heart. It brings tears to my eyes many times....don't ever lose that good heart of yours, it will certainly lead to you to great things in life - that I have no doubt!
