World As Lover, World As Self


wise words

The Quest™

buddha Statue

The way we define and delimit the self is arbitrary. We can place it between

our ears and have it looking out from our eyes, or we can widen it to include

the air we breathe, or at other moments we can cast its boundaries farther to

include the oxygen-giving trees and plankton, our external lungs, and beyond

them the web of life in which they are sustained.
