to the moment, life is full of times coming and going,
simultaneously....gradually fading in and out...The past is
unchangeable....the future, unforeseeable......That only leaves

- every thing that has been
told to you is not of the truth of your reality until you
discover it on your own.
- confusion exists
within minds.........asking to many questions to fast.
- those who feel they have much to accomplish have ambition...
......those who have accomplished much have patience
- to give is to make rejection possible; to not

emotion lies before contentment; as contentment

- words as summary have little impact, for what in essence lies within
the realm of experience............words only encompass
direction and path.

of seasons: the passage of time
- that which is understood only by necessity of action is not the final

a general first truth).......that which is realized
by necessity of feeling, is where it becomes an integral part.
- it takes patience and a calm mind to
see processes at work
- a part of
simplicity of mind is a strong view of reality; one where you do not
appease yourself by delusion
- only rarely is there any actual urgency in situations
(if any at all)....only in the desires and fantisful
creations of mind.
