Feb 18-24

Winter, week 9
"Each thing is the complete and perfect expression of our True Self and of the ultimate truth of the universe. Sun, moon, stars, every tree and blade of grass, and every action, large and subtle -- there isn't one of these that is not a complete revelation of the scenery of the essential world." --Yamada Koun
