Art ~ Catrin Welz-Stein

"Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled.

Trying to control leads to ruin. Trying to grasp.. we lose.

Allow your life to unfold naturally.

The world would transform in an instant. Lets go!

"What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth. If forests were our church. If holy ...water--the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being."

KARMA CATCHES UP WITH ME

I had a dream tonight.

Me and Arnie himself were out in the jungle hunting for the predator. We lit a fire to attract it out of its hiding.  We ran and hid a distance away were we could watch it move towards the fire.

After some few seconds, Arnold shouted to me as he took off, “run for your life its coming this way”

I happened to have a cloak which makes  me invisible. I pulled it to cover my self. Poor Arnie didn't know that i had my secret weapon so he had to depend…

They don’t like the way I pray

And they ban free poetry.
