To believe in the inexplicable, what came first the chicken or the egg? What is the sound of one hand clapping? Where does the flame go when the candle is blown out? The inexplicable is to know the way; those that do not practice the way are lost and ask, “What is the way?” We all know the way but few walk it. To be conscious is the way; life is the truth of the way. You are free to go your own way.
The way that can be said is not the true way. Seek and you will find your way. No one can tell you, you must experience it. The truth is on the breeze, in the fragrant scent of blossom, the song of a bird. A flower can tell you more than words about beauty. Words are counterfeit coin compared to the golden treasures of nature.
When you understand, life becomes a celebration, your encounters with it a joy. You eat to live you do not live to eat; food becomes a great experience for all your senses. The wind in the trees sings, the sounds of water are a symphony and the birds songs are music. Clouds, rocks and mountains are artistic sculptures, the bark of trees the patterns on leaves and all the many marks on ageing things are nature’s abstract art. Nature has led the way inspiring all mans art and inventions.
It is unimportant whether the chicken or egg came first. Explanations for irrelevant questions that have nothing to do with our happiness and contentment are useless. What is important is our attitude to life and the understanding that the best things in life have no dollar value, they are priceless. To thirst for pleasures like a child with an inflated coloured balloon is to play with sorrow.
To drink natures cleansing pure water and know your needs are not fizzy drinks of desire. To eat natures foods and not make your stomach a grave yard for dead animal bodies. To live in peace and harmony, caring and loving all, is the way. We do know the way but do not practice it? Not to appreciate the wondrous gifts spread in our path is to insult whoever or whatever you believe to be the all powerful provider. We will not be punished for this insult but if the laws of nature are unbalanced we will automatically suffer.
Life can be a wonderful journey for the person who knows the true nature of things. The one that appreciates and practices caring and sharing will find joy and contentment; giving and forgiving are the way to live. Love and understanding are necessary to find peace in our life. No one can do this for you; you must practice and observe these things as you make your own way in life.
Travel light, gather wisdom it is not a heavy burden, meander quietly, savour all and spread joy and kindness and you will enjoy your journey.
