Truth of Origin of Suffering

Kugyo san talked about Truth of Origin of Suffering from Four Noble Truths.

She cited poem by Mary Oliver “ I have Decided”

I have decided to find myself a home

in the mountains, somewhere high up

where one learns to live peacefully in

the cold and the silence. It’s said that

in such a place certain revelations may

be discovered. That what the spirit

reaches for may be eventually felt, if not

exactly understood. Slowly, no doubt. I’m

not talking about a vacation.

Of course at the same time I mean to

stay exactly where I am.

Are you following me?

poem written by Mary Oliver
