The source

The order is changing

as it always has and ever

will; the world is turning

on its everlasting wheel

and what was becomes

what is and will be.


This is the nature of our

temporal existence-that there

is always flux and what we come

to depend on is no more

certain than the coming of

rain and the length of dry.


We have but this as the core

to our dependent existence:

to be aware and understand our

life and suffering, and to know

that change is unending, is circle.


In this Knowledge that dispels

ignorance, we see the  better

path to happiness; and we seek to

bring compassion and joy to those

who suffer and in so doing we find

the source of all true and lasting peace.
