The priceless diamond

 

"Pure awareness of nowness is the real Buddha"

                                                           Dudjom Rinpoche

 

"To see clearly is poetry, philosophy and religion, all in one."

                                                                                                John Ruskin

                                                                 

 

                                                                   

The treasure

 

beyond all treasures

 

The priceless diamond

 

beyond measure

 

Pure presence our true essence

 

Being aware of being aware

 

Know and care

 

for this that

 

simply

 

is

 

Waves rise and fall

 

in the boundless Ocean of all

 

The mountain of stillness sings

 

a silent knowing beyond things

 

In utter simplicity

 

beauty

 

is
