As Simple As That!

Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody's business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy.

-Thomas Merton, Disputed Questions


Thank you to cathy_edgett
Heart Happy - As easy as this - I like it!
The motto: "Its simple but it ain't easy." has new meaning for me today.
So does: "You must be born again."
So does "Buddha nature" and "Buddha mind."
So does "give up piety, give up benevolence."
So does "Brahman is atman, atman is Brahman."
So does "consider the lilies....."
may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
whatever they sing is better than to know
and if men should not hear them men are old

may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
and even if it's sunday may i be wrong
for whenever men are right they are not young

and may myself do nothing usefully
and love yourself so more than truly
there's never been quite such a fool who could fail
pulling all the sky over him with one smile


-- from E.E. Cummings: Complete Poems 1904-1962, by e. e. cummings
Poetry Chaikhana | e. e. cummings - may my heart always be open to little
