Sitting in silence, dancing in gratitude,

Dancing like the huge waves,

Moving like the white clouds.

I see myself, I see the I who sees myself.

With gratitude I see, with gratitude I am seen.

…I occupy everything. I occupy nothing.

I am the becoming of indescribable change.

“The World of Flowers” from Shout of Buddha
