#44 Happiness, Compassion and Mosquitoes - the Dalai Lama

This is pretty good. Don't need to say much more as it involves the Dalai Lama. Life can be hard, its good to laugh at things sometimes.

#43 Enigma - Silent Warrior

This music, the words, and pictures, could not be more profound than now. I spoke about Black Elk (1863-1950) awhile back, post #18 I believe. I'll quote him again: 

"You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round...The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours...Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves."
