Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
Condolences to family and friends. Dear Rick, Here is something to ponder as you continue your journey. Thanks for your smiles and points of wisdom. Love and keep smiling, Richard. “This body is not me; I am not caught in this body, I am life without boundaries, I have never been born and I have never died. Over there the wide ocean and the sky with many galaxies All manifests from the basis of consciousness. Since beginningless time I have always been free. Birth and death are only a door through which we go in and out. Birth and death are only a game of hide-and-seek. So smile to me and take my hand and wave good-bye. Tomorrow we shall meet again or even before. We shall always be meeting again at the true source, Always meeting again on the myriad paths of life.” -Thich Nhat Hanh - Posted by: Richard Enns (Friend ) on: Jun 18, 2019
