Wherever he goes, there he is unafraid.. Wherever he sleeps, there he is unalarmed!
The nights and days does neither touch nor burn him. He sees nothing in this world
that is to be kept or lost.. Therefore his mind dwells in goodwill and gentle kindness
towards all beings until he falls asleep.

Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

Too wonderful to fit a description in words.

And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"

On a plane from London to Winnepeg I read, to my horror, the May 18, 1970 Time cover story about the shootings at Kent State that happened while I was in London. I had been in Britian for a month to visit with Buddhists, there being to none to visit with in northern Minnesota. It was a wonderful trip in terms of who I got to meet and all, but I was totally out of touch with the news during that time. Had I known about Kent State while I was there I might not have come back. It is interesting after all these years how evocative the memories of that time still are.

It's too short, though.

If you want to explore further in this direction, Modus.Ponens (or MIke, for that matter), you could try to track down
John Luther Adams: The place we began Cold Blue Music CB0032
This is not the John Adams of Nixon in China fame, though they have a lot in common.

Thank you Kim. :smile: I've added that to my wish list. I'll PM you right after this.

I think it's the ideal lenght. I have a short atention span, so even if I'm loving a piece, I eventualy start asking: when is it going to end? :shrug:
