    The book is a collection of wisdom, profound truths and mystical knowledge from various cultures.The first poems included in the book are from The Upanishads, the central teachings of Hinduism Here is an excerpt about the self thought to be the divine essence of the heart Self is everywhere, shining forth from all beings, vaster than the vast, subtler than the most subtle, unreachable, yet nearer than breath, than heartbeat Eye cannot see it, ear cannot hear it nor tongue utter it only in deep absorption can the mind, grown pure and silent, merge with the formless truth He who finds it is free he has found himself he has solved the great riddle his heart forever is at peace Wu Men Zen Buddhism, few enlightenment poems known as koans Koans are so phrased that they deliberately throw sand into our eyes to force us to open our Mind s eye and see the world and everything in it without distortion The import of every koan is the same that the world is one interdependent Whole and that each separate one of us is that Whole John Ankerberg One instant is eternity Eternity is the now.When you see through this one instant,You see through the one who sees Moon and clouds are the same mountain and valley are different.All are blessed all are blessed.Is this one Is this two

    Found this in my son Connor s and my favorite old dusty used book DVD CD store, The Frugal Muse in Downers Grove, IL It s a gem I ll likely be carrying this around in my work backpack, etc permanently Beautiful and sacred texts transcending many faiths and sets of beliefs, including both obscure and well known For example, St Francis of Assisi s Canticle of the Sun wonderful.This copy was originally a gift in its past life Ron, Merry Christmas Angela, 89 Sorry to see that Ron gave his copy up, but so happy that it landed with me Even meaningful having found it while with Connor, doing one of our favorite things together.Can t say I m really finished reading this as I ve been digging back into it nearly every morning, and will continue to do so.
