All tremble at the rod,
All hold their life dear,
Drawing the parallel to yourself,
Neither kill nor cause others to kill.
- Dhammapada [ The Path of Truth – Sayings of the Buddha]

“Secondly you can recognize that that mind, essentially, is no different than that process of consciousness which is in all beings. Whether it’s human beings or animals or even insects … you see that that which is in common to all life is this mind, this consciousness, the source of doing.

Once you see that, you have much more respect for your fellow beings. Not just respect for your own race, your own tribe, or your own religion, not just for human beings but for all beings.”

- “Meditation: The Heart of Buddhism" by Ajahn Brahmavamso, from “Noble Living – Selection of Dhamma Essays”
[Dhamma:Truth/Reality/Universal laws]

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.
