Rise Up And Greet The Dawn

This was painted by a good friend in the Dharma for the original Jade Mountains website, circa 2003.

*Rise up!
Rise up and greet the dawn.

Step out!
Step out and the Great Earth,
Leaps joyfully.

Walk on!
Walk on and forget…

It is said that the Great Earth is the foundation of gratitude and refers to the fundamental ground of Everything.

One thought on “Rise Up And Greet The Dawn”

  1. And a quote that I just came upon:

    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.
    You are a child of the universe,
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe
    is unfolding as it should.

    -Desiderata-

    Somehow good news to hear with the upcoming New Year. All the best…Jack
