Re: Dhamma Poetry

Mysteries, Yes ~ Mary Oliver
Let me keep my distance, always, from those

who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say

“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,

and bow their heads.

Re: I believe in Science

Beautiful word 'meaning'. What's on the other side of meaning? - Mind.
Meaning can be sought without, but true meaning is found within.
