To Friends – both new and old
For nearly 50 years I have been immersed in various traditions of Buddhist philosophy and practice, blending them with interests in life sciences and ecology. Green Dharma Treasury is a web library of many of my writings. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to share them with you. Some major themes encompass: Natural Awakening, Contemplative Science, and Classical Buddhadharma – all of them arising out of our embeddedness in this universe of nature unfolding. May these writings support a deepening of wisdom, compassion and non-clinging awareness for the sake of all of us.

with love and good wishes

There is a wholeness about living.
It’s not cracked. It’s not glued together.
Feelings, values, perceptions and conceptions are
tumbling and flowing through and with each other 
wherever we look.
If we look!

Every experience is experienced by someone.
And every someone, is a matrix of looking;
a unique contribution of knowing,
a collaboration of domains and dimensions.

To survive we must look,
and not merely look as if, through looking,
we might see what is.

To survive we must look with passion,
with caring,
with discernment
and with playful enthusiasm.

Through looking as an act of participation
we bring forth worlds.
