“…not among men.”


Just had to post this:

Green Mountain

You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;

I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.

As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown,

I have a world apart that is not among men.

~~~ Li Po

  1. Hi Alexander,

    Great post. It reminds me to “go with the flow.” I will have want for nothing if I am totally non-resistant to what the Universe has for me…just “as the peach-blossom flows down stream…” Thanks again for the reminder. Blessings!


  2. This post made me tear up. Bless you for bringing it into my life like a living reminder, a reflection of all things dear to me. It spoke as an old friend. I lived several years of my life in the wild, away from the world of man. The photo…the simple profound poem by Li Po…and my heart said, “Yes, I know this place, like old friend, my peace, my soul, my reason for living.”

    You touched my life today.
    Thank you.
