Contemplative Monday

The following is from 'The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh'
and published by 'Shambhala Pocket Classics'.


" If you are a poet, you will see clearly
 that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper.

Without a cloud, there will be no rain, without rain,
the trees cannot grow; and without trees, we cannot make paper.

The cloud is essential for the paper to exist.
If the cloud is not here, the sheet of paper cannot be here either.

So we can say that the cloud and the paper 'inter-are'. "
