“Sitting quietly,
doing nothing,
spring comes,
and the grass grows by itself”
~ Zen Proverb

Nothing is old,
if nothing is new.

Nothing is false,
if nothing is true.

Nothing’s undone,
if there’s nothing to do.

Ron’s audio recitation of Nothings

    Great website !…I will start with most current postings and review them by dates.

    I like the simplicity of this posting with your profound and Seussian poem…it leaves the reader to reflect and fill in the message…my first thoughts are that no-thing is every-thing and emptiness is fullness.

    Your professionally presented site will be inspirational to many of your readers.

    Thanks Sid, for being first to comment on Because I very much respect your Right Brain blog, which I encourage others to visit, I take it as a good omen that you are interested in this website.

    As stated in my inaugural notice “It is my deep aspiration that the aphorisms, essays, quotes, poems, and stories . . . posted at . . . will help raise our collective consciousness, enabling us to live happier lives, both individually and societally.”

    A lot of what I post may seem paradoxical and enigmatic, or wrong. I don’t claim verity of my sutras, only the intention with which they are posted, viz. that readers reflect on deep perennial questions raised thereby , and then decide for themselves what feels right for them.

    Thanks again for participating in
