Philosophy and Comments        

"Brambles should be cut away,

Removing even the sprouts.

Within essence there naturally blooms,

A beautiful lotus blossom.

One day there will suddenly appear

an image of light;

When you know that You yourself are it."

Sun Bu-er.

"The first doctor is the patient himself" ~Ancient Chinese medicine

"Each of us has the capacity for self-knowledge, awareness and positive change. We can eliminate self-defeating patterns and increase our capacity for joy through self-awareness. Open yourself to awakening." Martina
