Words of the Month

February 2018

If we aim to
Accomplish something,
We must begin
By envisioning Metsu or cessation.

Metsu should always be
Placed at the foundation
Of all attempts
And endeavors.

Metsu refers to the state of cessation
In which suffering and its causes are eradicated.

This does not only mean
Solution of problems
Or elimination of minuses.

It represents radiance
Of fulfillment of the blueprint
And shimmering light
Of the purpose and aspirations to aim for.
