"The definition of wealth has changed.
Wealth now is having more money, wealth means
a car, big house, accounts in banks, etc,etc,
While  the real wealth is,
when you know, when to say,
this is enough.
in other words,

Scripture Of No Letters.

"Fresh, pure, dewy flowers,
birds singing, clear and bright,
calm clouds, blue waters,
Who has written the true words of no letters?
Lofty mountains, green trees,
deep valleys, lucid streams,
soft winds, serene moon,
I calmly read, the true words of no letters."
(Zenkei Shibayama 1894-1974)

The Four Immeasurables.

"To others who are more fortunate, practice
MUDITA, sympathetic joy,
this is an antidote to envy and jealousy.
To others who are less fortunate, practice
 KARUNA, compassion,
this is sympathy extended to all sentient beings,
takes away the heaviness of the heart, it gives wings.
To all sentient beings, practice
METTA, loving kindness,
this overcomes anger, hatered, ill will & aversions.
To the self, practice UPEKKHA, equanimity,
this gives mind a balanced mind, and rooted inside."
(essential Buddhism)

I honor the place in you
in which the entire universe dwells,
I honor the place in you
which is of love, of truth, of light and peace,
When you are in that place in you,
And I am in that place in mine,

Father and daughter.

Father and daughter.
(Paul Simon)
If you keep awake
In the mirror of a bad dream
and for a fraction of a second
you can't remember where you are
just open your window
 and follow your memory upstream
to the meadow in the mountain,
where we counted every falling star,
I believe a light that shines you
will shine on you forever
and though I can't guarantee
there's nothing scary hiding under your bed,
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard
of a golden retriver
and never leave 'till I leave
with a sweet dream in your bed,
I'm gonna watch you shine
gonna watch you grow
gonna paint a sign
so you'll always know
as long as one and one is two,
there could never be a father who loved
his daughter more than I love you.


"May I be safe and protected,
May I be peaceful and happy,
May I be healthy and strong,
May I have ease of well beings, and
accepted all conditions of the world."
(Metta, loving kindness meditation)

"And you wait, keep waiting for one thing,
which would infinitely enrich your life,
maybe rare, maybe mighty, maybe uplifting,
depth that would reveal you to yourself,
In the dusk you notice the piles of books that muse you,
with their volumes in gold and brown,
and you think of far lands you've travelled,
of pictures of shimmering inspiring women,
And it comes to you all of a sudden,
you arise, for you are aware
of years in your distant past,
with it's fears,
and events,
and maybe a little prayers."
(Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875-1926)
