Musings

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a river empties into the ocean,

empty yourself into Reality.

 

When you are emptied into Reality

you are filled with compassion,

 

desiring only justice.

 

When you desire only justice,

the will of Reality becomes your will.

 

When you are filled with compassion,

there is no self to oppose another

 

and no other to stand against oneself.

 

~ Pirke Avot 2:4

a compilation of ancient Jewish teachings and maxims.
