Squinters

The curious
the contemplators
the ones who concentrate
on the littlest details.
The most beautiful thing
about them
is how they space out
and their attention is unattainable.
While the others dismiss things
as useless activities
the squinters wish to figure out the world
and how we revolve around it.

 

Buddhist Yoga

Tolerance
should be shown towards everyone

The release of stress through gentle exercise
gives rise to a new era of peace

Truth
Compassion
Tolerance
Falun Gong
