The Enlightened Heart -

A friend asks what book I might recommend to someone with six months to live.  I open The Enlightened Heart, An Anthology of Sacred Poetry, edited by Stephen Mitchell.  It is a treasure trove.

My heart rests here:

The birds have vanished into the sky,
and now the last chord drains away.

We sit together, the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.

- Li Po
