"Soul-songs glance On a mute sapphire; births are all dews of human hues-bubbles of wine with desire-dreams."

"All cravings are the mind seeking salvation or fulfillment in external things and in the future as a substitute for the joy of being. As long as I am my mind, I am those cravings, Those needs, wants, attachments, and aversions, and, apart from them, there is no "I". Except as a mere possibility, an unfulfilled potential. A seed that has not yet sprouted."

- Eckhart Tolle

Flame Lives Dance, watercolor on silk H.C.Love

"... The flame-lives dance

On a still life-fire,

And soul -songs glance

On a mute sapphire;

births are all dews

of human hues-

Bubbles of wine with desire dreams.

But who is the deep

And white wide sleep?

the giant hushed with intoxication

is drinking the dreams of his bubbling creation."

- Nishikanto excerpt from ,Dance on Deep Stillness
