Nonsense Sculptures by Seyo Cizmic
Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter.

You don’t have to sit cross-legged to meditate. If you pay attention, if you listen, both inwardly and outwardly as you breathe, stand, walk, speak, work, play, and look into the eyes of your beloved, you are also meditating. When you catch your attention being distracted by wondering thoughts, by memories, by emotional agitation, and so on, you are meditating. What you call this process isn’t important. What does matter is paying attention to ‘what is’, including the stillness and silence that dwells at the heart of being.
~ Charles Bukowski
