Pattern

"One cannot 'enact' without affecting everything and, at the same time, being affected by everything. Pattern affects pattern, creating further pattern.  Pattern evolves out of chaos and becomes chaos again. Pattern and randomness dance together."

Unconditional love

"There is nothing more important in life then unconditional love. Allowing phenomena to touch us deeply and to be open for its communication. So that we can become a unique expression of this unconditional love to be at service of phenomena, for everyone, everything, everywhere. There is no higher aspiration."
Aro Buddhism, Naljorpa Bar-ché Dorje
