Teachings



Why does a frog quack
is it out of lust
is he calling for a female
or is it just something he does?

Why does the bird sing?
just because he likes it
or does it want to form a choir
with his brothers and sisters?

Why does the cat meow
is it cause she likes to speak
maybe seeking attention
or is it a flea that's biting her?

Why do humans fight and kill
be ignorant, betray and steal
to what nature is teaching us
is the circular course of life?

Why are there people satisfied
with the small things in life
and see the beauty of all things
just because they want?

Do you think you have a choice
to make the best of it
to follow your own path in life
by staying true in being?

I like to participate in cases which can make a difference for myself, my surroundings and the earth. My wish: humanity in a non-dualistic society. more…
