Past Obessions.....

We should not try and create The past in Future

Which would be Our undoing in History

We have to Leave behind both Good and Bad of The Past

As in the understanding of what It has been and

Create our Present and Work towards Future

With Freedom and Compassion.

                 *        *        *        *        *

                                    PSALM  1

Blessed are the Man and Women

Who have grown beyond their Greed and

Have put an End to their hatred and

No longer nourish Illusions.

But they delight in the ways things are and

Keep their hearts open day and night.

They are like Trees planted near flowing rivers

Which bear fruit when they are ready

Their leaves will not Fall or Wither

Everything they do will Succeed.
