Heaven, unmoving, awaits us
for the Final Feast in Valhalla
with choirs of angels singing battle hymns
Glory and Simplicity,
beyond all Thought or Word.
What value progress if we are rising in empty cities?
Progressing step by step is staying in the present, moment by moment.
Going down to the depths alleviates the tyranny of surface perceptions.
Willows weep in joy
heavenly birds bless the earth as they land
where ordinary mortals
can admire and learn
from their grace and beauty.
are what we all have
providing fuel for the journey
to flame bright above
and obstacles galore
There is drinking of wine in genuine confidence. No blame. But if
one wets his head, he loses it, in truth.
Our first thought is Majesty
Our second beyond hope and fear
Mutual warmth blazes like the sun at midday:
The makings of a good marriage
Darkest before dawn
the lone rooster cries
and millennia of omens concur:
A new day dawns!
We have been dancing this way for millennia
Good and bad, friend and enemy, enlightened and degraded.
We know no other way.
Sometimes it is time to celebrate.
Sometimes it is time punish.
Yi: Should we fire Fernando now?
Here today, gone tomorrow
Deception only harvests sorrow.
