For the accomplished warrior, belief is not a form of strategy, nor is it borrowing the stories of previous warriors from books and stories. Trying to theorize and borrow ideas doesn't seem to help. The notion of belief, or view, here is based on complete simplicity. Your view is not affected by liberalism or conservatism, nihilism or eternalism, at all. Your view is straightforward and simple; it is almost a cosmic domestic view. It is the notion of complete simplicity. When you meet a person, you don't have to develop a whole style of how to view that person according to either the historic or present situation, the sociological context, his religious connections, or whatever it may be. You don't have to go through all that. You can have a direct relationship, which is very simple, direct, and straightforward -- extremely straightforward. - Chogyam Trungpa

From "Inscrutability," a talk given to the Directors of Shambhala Training, July 1978.

Eternal Nature
Clicia Pavan

Eternal nature, Muse of poets!
Inspiration of the small nightingale

Who sings the dawn, beautiful
wife of the sun!

Fresh-water lakes
rest among flowers
A quiet spell
involves the nature!

The birds sing thanks to God
The nightingale sings love
A song of love

The colorful flowers cover
the entire valley
The rain pours on the ground that tears semeam lives

Looking so much beauty
as you do not believe in God?
Your work Immortal Nature
Do not forget me
I am a mere mortal

Feel how beautiful life
Feel all the emotion of love
Feel the scent of flowers
Let peace that invades your soul
Nothing is more important than you
Do not be afraid to dare and be happy

Life is the simplicity of every day
The most beautiful poem created by God
