When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it is hitched to everything else in the universe.
The light that shines higher than heaven
is the very same light we have within us ...
There is nothing in the universe
that is not myself.
There is no need for temples,
no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain,
our own heart,
is our temple.
Our philosophy is kindness.
(I like the Dalai Lama's quote because the above image reminded me both of temples (Middle Eastern) and of brain waves.)
