Blooms & Smiles

“When daffodils begin to sing…”

Posts from Alberto D. Albano as he posts to Taoism; Lao Tzu and Wu Wei Group

In this air, in this smiling time: the grass is greener, the flowers begin to bloom, and we begin our own renews.

Looking for the gaps

The silence between the notes

The spaces of inspiration and enlightenment

This time


The Tao

Within Dao is

light and dark

Many think that the

light is so beautiful

I’m here to tell you now,

the dark is beautiful too

As the Dao states:

Mystery and reality

emerge from the

same Source ~

This Source is called darkness

Darkness born from darkness

The beginning of all understanding

Behold the beauty of Darkness

The Way Things Are

Last Night I had a Dream-Vision. I cannot share it except to say it was glimpses and also total immersion in Enlightenment and Light.

I am All Things.

I am Nothing.

The funny part was when I awoke I thought I was Mormon. That I had gone to a Mormon Church to uncover the experience.

But then I remembered that I was all religions.

And then I remembered that I was none. This was however after I had told the kids that it had turned out that I was a Mormon, and It looked like I would have to become a Mormon.

And then I wanted to write everything down. And then I remembered I should forget everything and just be.

I went to swimming and closed my eyes and let the brilliant sun though the window enwrap me.

I know the things which are important. Nothing is important.

About Shrines & Buddha

Thich Nhat Hanh gems

Over ten years ago, one of my disciples in Vietnam had a stupa – a Buddhist shrine – built for my ashes. I told her that I didn’t need a stupa for my ashes. I don’t want to be stuck in a stupa. I want to be everywhere.“But,” she protested, “it’s already built!”“In that case,” I said, “you’ll have to put an inscription on the front, saying, ‘I am not in here.’” It’s true. I won’t be there in the stupa. Even if my body is cremated and the ashes are put in there, they aren’t me. I won’t be in there. Why would I want to be in there when outside it is so beautiful? But in case some people misunderstand, I told her they might need to add another inscription, saying, “I am not out there either.” People won’t find me inside or outside the stupa. Yet they may still misunderstand. So there may need to be a third inscription that reads, “If I am to be found anywhere, it is in your peaceful way of breathing and walking.” That is my continuation. Even though we may never have met in person, if, when you breathe in, you find peace in your breathing, I am there with you.– Thich Nhat Hanh, in “The Art of Living”#ThichNhatHanhgems #ThichNhatHanh#Mindfulness & #Awakening—Image: © Michael Volpicelli

So, have you heard? There is a movement to declare TNH a living Buddha. Is that so? Of course. He would say, We are all Buddha.
