"When understood, the Buddha’s universe..is anything but alien and inhibiting. It is a world full of hope, where everything we need to do can be done and everything that matters is within human reach. It is a world where kindness, unselfishness, non-violence, and compassion achieve what self-interest and arrogance cannot. It is a world where any human can be happy in goodness and the fullness of giving." ❦ Eknath Easwara

Metta for a Dog and Its Delight

O Great Doggy Heart,

Looking upon the Wonderful Object of your Joy and Desire,

May your Master make time for your Joy and Delight in the Chase,

May you race through the grass with ecstasy,
as the Great Hunter of Things Thrown and Things Caught!

May your Master delight in your Joy and Delight in the Chase

May your Master look deeply into this Joy and Delight

And sense the endless Fields of Love, where Dog and Delight and Master and Play,

And are One in the never-ending Bliss of the Dance of Being.

Steve Goodheart
