Unbinding, Simplicity, Black Flag and Flowers

There’s no fire like passion, 
    no loss like anger,
    no pain like the aggregates,
    no ease other than peace.

Hunger: the foremost illness.
Fabrications: the foremost pain.
For one knowing this truth
as it actually is,
is the foremost ease.

Freedom from illness: the foremost good fortune.
Contentment: the foremost wealth.
Trust: the foremost kinship.
Unbinding: the foremost ease.

~Dhp 202-205

… If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

~Albert Einstein

We are born with a chance
    Rise above
We’re gonna rise above
I am gonna have my chance
    Rise above
We’re gonna rise above

~Black Flag

  1. Anyone who puts Black Flag along side of The Buddha and Einstein is OK in my book. Made my morning.
