Constant change, impermanance.....enough of anything turns into a lack of something. Desire.....then the middle way. Not too much, not too little. Is the glass half emtpty, or half full?



Enough. These few words are enough.
If not these words, this breath.
If not this breath, this sitting here.

This opening to the life
we have refused
again and again
until now.
Until now

we change


The realisation I've had (excuse possessive) is: whatever is happening is enough. I just couldn't see it "before".

Barry Briggs

Thanks, everyone. Enough of enough!

Cynical Mask

What happens when we've had enough?

We complain about it! What else?
