the sun

"that i exist is a perpetual surprise, which is life". rabindranath tagore

the sun gives without condition . . . its gift is received and used in every way imaginable . . .

what can be learned from such benevolence . . . .

a stone which has become a ruby
is filled with the qualities of the sun.
no stoniness remains in it.
if it loves itself, it is loving the sun.
and if it loves the sun, it is loving itself.
there is no difference between these two loves.
