Memories from Cambodia.

Feeding war with war is like pouring more salt on an open wound. Anyone can justify their point of view and make it sound Adequate for any reason.. The brighter soul
Is the one who forgives, and let’s go.
The need to be right is pointless when it’s causing hurt.
Letting go isn’t the end of the world; it’s the beginning of a new life.

the loss of ego in the sea of consciousness

Once I fell in love with a boy, I never told him, so I left. But he found the can I’d left behind, where a message of compassion was hidden.. The song of care was sung, so the boy never need to feel alone again. Our smile sings the song of light.
