“There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere and of leaving it behind them when they go.”

"A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing."

Henry David

Acupuncture Is Like Noodles

"Wages without profits are fine with us, in part because we feel genuinely queasy about the idea of making a profit while practicing health care. We know that people may find us quaint for saying so, but we believe that there is a moral problem with making money off of human suffering. We need to be compensated for taking care of people, certainly, because it takes up our time and energy and prevents us from earning a living any other way -- but being compensated with a paycheck is different than setting up our business so that sick people pay more than they absolutely have to for care in order for us to accumulate money without working for it. Some acupuncturists whom we otherwise respect keep promoting the idea that everyone should charge their patients lots of money so that acupuncturists can become rich and give money away to charities who will then do good works; we find this a very weird and convoluted kind of altruism. If you want to do good, why not just do it yourself? With people you know? Right now, instead of waiting to accumulate enough money to give away to someone else to do it?"

"To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man's land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again. From the awakened point of view, that's life. Death is wanting to hold onto what you have and to have every experience confirm you and congratulate you and make you feel completely together. So even though we say the Yama Mara is fear of death, it's actually fear of life."
