Tenzing Tharkay

Maybe, I think, we should be grateful…grateful that we’ve managed to survive through all of our adventures, whether they were real or only a dream.
Arthur Schnitzler

Pushkin at the Seashore  -  Leonid Pasternak 

Vite, faites un vœu !

T'as vu, Hans, y'a encore des gens agréables dans ce bas-monde ?
— Le traitement à l'arsenic te ramolli l'ampoule mon pauvre Rupert,
je dis qu'on devrait retracer l'appel et leur rendre visite...
— Gros géorgien va ! tu sais pas apprécier la gentillesse, c'est gentil là ce qu'ils disent
— Hans, fais moi confiance, si ça se trouve c'est des gitans qui viendront camper dans la cour du kremlin et piquer nos framboises et notre fromage de chèvre...

Try A Little Tenderness
Irving Penn

“How can the universe support a vision that you yourself won’t hold tenderly and steadily within your heart? Your consciousness is your spiritual womb. Be quietly and proudly pregnant with the most beautiful possibilities for your future.”

M. Williamson

And I will die, and you will die, and we all will die, and even the stars will fade out one after another in time.

No writing on the solitary, meditative dimensions of life can say anything that has not already been said better by the wind in the pine trees.

Every day, think as you wake up - Today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.
H. H. Dalai Lama XIV

The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. 
The good news is 
there’s no ground.

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

The Buddha said his path to awakening was one of rebellion - a subversive path against greed, against hatred, and against delusion. It is a path of radical, engaged transformation, a path of finding freedom and spending the rest of our lives giving it away. It is a path that goes against the stream.
