Beyond words…

Posted on

On this Fathers’ Day and Summer Solstice weekend, as we move from the mental airiness of Gemini to the watery depths of Cancer, this aphorism speaks to me:

“Words and thoughts are limited and relative,

while truth is without limits.

Words find their truth in the heart of silence,

and thoughts when they arise from the depths of non-thought.”

Master Taisen Deshimaru

    i finally got a father’s day card from my son, david, who is not a very conventional guy. It was sweet to get validation in writing, even if u r an unconventional dad. perhaps less unconventional than i think. anyway, he’s off to Israel tomorrow for 10 days even thou he’s not all that jewish. god forbid he should come back a zionist and enroll in yeshiva! how they rebel, these children…even if they have to go to the right to get u. hugs to all. marv
