wonderful, wonderful, beautiful and lovely thread. . i can simply feel it.
i will add about longevity; as we get closer to our true nature, we begin to see the world in a different way;
closer to the boundlessness of buddha-nature, we see that boundlessness more and more in all things
when we give more, buddhas, the earth, we get to see it all.
to understand that giving is so. . .
words don't express it.
anyhow, joy <3
