– Maya: (from World Wisdom)
“The Sovereign Good is real, the world is dream;
The dream-world has its roots in the Supreme,
Who casts His image in the endless sea
Of things that may be or that may not be.
The fabric of the Universe is made
Of rays and circles, or of light and shade;
It veils from us the Power’s burning Face
And unveils Beauty and Its saving Grace.”
— Frithjof Schuon

– “When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice!”
— American Indian Saying
Most people live in such a way that, when they die, they cry and the world rejoices!
And what about those babies that are greeted by laments and regrets??
Remembering one’s beginning & ending is essential to live well in between. So never let all the noise & chaos get to you!

When Jesus died, most people did rejoice, right?? And didn’t he cry when he died?!
