There is no such word as Can't, it just means you don't want to
---- My Father


Give a man a match he'll be warm for a day, set him on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life

To fill the hour ------that is happiness.

Yes! And there's more to it, I have it on my refrigerator:

"To fill the hour, that is happiness; to fill the hour and leave no crevice for a repentance or an approval."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


I also have:
"He who binds himself to a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise."

- William Blake

(quite buddhist of him, don't you think?)

That saying gives me an image of a colorful butterfly, and kissing it as it flutters up & away....

I'm going to paraphrase because I don't have the exact quote at hand, but it went like:
"If I am to be any good in the future, then I am some good now, for corn is corn, even if people from the city mistake it for grass at first." --Vincent Van Gogh

where there is right and wrong,

there is the heaven and hell,
there is the hate and love,
there is the honour and sham ...


Does yin & yang include right & wrong, or is yinyang already "beyond it"?

Yin & yang are the two opposing principles in nature.
You can say yin & yang include right & wrong.

Reply #61 limark's post

That's right which i wanted to say.

You will always see a small dot in each of the opposing principles.

It starts small and when grow bigs, it becomes right or wrong,
negative or positive.

But to move a stone, believe the mind must be full of Yang's.
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards
