Тайны / Mysteries, Yes

Buddha

Как по линии из домино, я переходила от книги к книге, от сайта к сайту о медитации, осознании и Буддизме и вот лишь на прошлой неделе я так дошла до лекций Джека Корнфилда. Какие они вдохновляющие! Сегодня слушала одну, в которой он прочитал это замечательное стихотворение:

I've been on a mindfulness/meditation quest recently. This search periodically takes over me like a wave, but this time it's been the strongest. From book to book, from site to site, like dominoes, I reached Jack Kornfield' talks last week and they are so good! I savor them. In the one I listened to today, he read this poem. How beautiful!

Mysteries, Yes

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

–Mary Oliver, Evidence
