Watching them become one with the skies and the earth, as my heart and mind endeavor to survive a reality which at any moment will no longer exist.

    People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
