Reflections on Death

Postby clw_uk » Fri Jan 30, 2009 9:48 pm

Just wanted to see if many people here practice this reflection?

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingèd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.

William Blake

Daily for 15 years.
Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

often, possibly not as often as I should, but at least once a week.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
