to the basic phenomenon of life: expansion, sharing.
The moment you start clinging to things,
you have missed the target.

not much money, but a rich you;
not many things, but an open being,
available to millions of things.
- Osho

Create apart from perfection.

Care.
Understand you die a little in every moment.
Be Enlivened
