Rejoice in knowing
your happiness does not depend
upon you knowing anything.

Rejoice in discovering the discoverer
who needn’t search any further
to find himself.

Rejoice in accepting that the moment
is all you have
and all you will ever need.

Rejoice for the sake of rejoicing
for in so doing
you find happiness.

  1. Thanks Dan and Andrew.

    Dan: You know me better than that. 🙂

    Andrew: Never agree with a “worldly” monk who knows jazz and classical music like the back of his hand and who actually knows how to remodel houses. 🙂

  2. Again, you hit the nail on the head, Don.

    I always enjoy my visits here. Thank you for making a place so lovely to tarry in.
