A Big Heart

People in the world aren’t balanced
Love and hate, they do both to extremes
You have to take this heart
And make it bigger

Compassion can overcome all hardships
If you see all beings with a compassionate heart
Then your heart is big
And all troubles are gone

— From the documentary Amongst White Clouds

Acting like a Thief

There’s nothing real from the start
Every day, morning to night, gathering things

Big and small valuables
Money, name and recognition
Gathering it all up into your lap

Like you’re holding the golden key
Busy your whole life for nothing
Acting like a thief

Why not put all this energy to liberation?
Put this mind to the Path

— From the documentary Amongst White Clouds

Busy, Busy, Mine, Mine

Ten thousand things, all in this breath
Why are people in this world so busy?
Just for this one breath
They say “busy, busy, mine, mine…”

Busy a whole lifetime for “Me”
When this breath is cut off
You let go of the whole universe
Why not let go from the start?

Vastness

Fallen into
This vast universe without meaning
Lonely and caught up in confusion
Taken away by the winds of separation

Suddenly
A glimpse of reunion
Guided by precious beings
Although no beings can be found anywhere

A longing to be united
With unconditional peace
Searching for miracles in the wrong places
All of them to be found within the breath

As body and mind become transparent
The heart
Steps out of its self-made confinements
Into the vastness of it all

At the Red Light

At the red light
Hard sunlight illuminates the street
Stirring piano chords in the air
A wave is rushing through my body
My eyes becoming moist
The next moment
Gone

True Silence

A noisy mountain river
Waves of sound
Dancing around trees
Miraculously entering my ears
No one here
To disturb the silence

Patient Mountains

Looking down into the valley
Shapes of clouds seem numberless

Up here, the weather changes quickly
Sun, wind, clouds and rain
Conduct an endless symphony

The lake reflects without a preference
As patient mountains listen deeply

Summer Walk

There it is
Coming from nowhere
Going nowhere
Two flickering lights in the distance
Dogs barking
Warm wind touched by the skin
A firm stand on the ground
So very peaceful in the midst of it all
As the heart opens
It doesn’t reject anything
Nor does it add something unnecessary
There it is
A taste of freedom

My Dearest Belief

In the moment of death
Even if it comes with great force and fury
It will have its own strange beauty
And I will be ready
To surrender
To life

Intimacy

The wind is coming
A range of trees in the distance
Waving welcome and goodbye
Your voice so intimate and close
Your smile echoing through my body
