Mother of Peace, Truth of Life
They are the mother of the world: the earth, the air, the fire and the wind. These four important elements are called the nature. They have been composed of three natural rules: the impermanence, the deterioration and the non-substantiality. There are three characteristics working as a flux, dynamism, moving and gravitating...etc Today the mother of our world grants us the greenary grasses and trees, the unreturning-flowed river, the birds and the exotic atmosphere. This beauty of nature entertains us by the babbling brook, the chirbing birds, the humming wind and dancing leaves, the quietness, the peacefulness and the meditating mind....he is calm with this peaceful fresh air...his mind is focusing on breathing which insights the concept of understanding the energy, continuum, changing, decaying and non-essence of nature and lives...this led him to understand well the truth of life.

Love is Needed
Love and Campassion are important for beings. Individuals hate loneliness and conflict. Individuals need companion and understanding. But when they have approached this need, they are always blocked by seperation and retaliation. Why?. Do individuals need true love?. If so, how could they pursue it?. The answer has already engraved in individual's heart. Learn from these peaceful couple of duck.
They are swimming toward boundless water frontier
They are commiting to live together unless death appears
They are content and quiet with this natural atmosphere
They are the gear, the sample model of human beings.
Streamline of Realization
Like the stream of water flows consistently and has never reversed. Our life is the same. We are moving forward, no backward and no glue of past becomes future. Birth, old, sick and death are the reality of our life. Have we ever realized this truth? And how are we going to deal with it?. We have no power or ability to ban this reality. We are flowing foward like this stream of water. Absolutely, this streamline teaches us the meaning of life which is idealistic optional. Someone chooses to be an evil through their tainted mind, speech and action. But someone efforts to adjust and enhance their mind in a positive way. Nature of mind is pure, but it is gradually tainted by carelessness and heedlessness of human beings. Subjects to constant changes are accurate to all things, so strive on with our heedfulness to achieve our individual sublime destination. As well as, this stream of water is heading foward to the sea and bringing along with all floating things. (Vodano)
Moving for Life
Good health is important for life. It is concerned with both physical and mental well-being. Body and mind are inter-connected, inter-related and inter-dependent. When we eat good, sleep well, regular exercises and fit up..etc can provide us wellness and sustainability of our body. But when we have peace in mind, we can eradicate stress, fear, frustration, depression and mental illness...etc Most people interest only in promoting the sustainability of body, and pay less attention to develop the sustainability of mind. Life is moving foward like this group of Tai Chi practitioners are forwarding their body and mind toward Enlightenment.(Vodano)
Words of Love and Compassion
This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
In gladness and in saftey,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!
Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.
