Ahead, upon the road, appeared a figure quite familiar,
and it seemed to be ...
But the shades of the dead walk not the earth,
yet you seemed to be ...
For you are gone
and I cannot follow.
You are free
while I'm still bound.
But I see your spirit in every tree and root,
in the rain and wind,
and the sea and sand
And I need you near.
It is precisely because our present life is so inseparably linked with desire that we must make use of desire’s tremendous energy if we wish to transform our life into something transcendental. -Lama Thubten Yeshe
There are two ways to look at life. One is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is. -Albert Einstein
