Chiaroscuro (light and dark)

Meditate.
Live purely.
Be quiet.
Do your work with mastery.
Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds!
Shine.

-(I have yet to verify if this is really the Buddha’s)-

The power of this group of words put together is enhanced by its bareness.

It is so powerful that after reading it, one is compelled to blessed quietness, and so, to rest.

My picture here is not of the moon, but of the yang—the active sun, searing and unforgiving.

Nevertheless, it cannot force its way all the same through kilometers upon kilometers of cumulonimbus thickness—however gossamer this body of suspended water is.

Such contrasts is what makes up our earth, and meditating on our inadequacies side by side these contrasts may help us chance upon the courage to break out of our own heavy and dark clouds.

The constant will to shine is what makes us alive.

Oh look! No chemtrails! A happy day!
