    Staying at Amida Mandala for the Bell Master Training weekend, I walked over to Rose Bank Gardens and sat on the bench where I sat for hours a couple of years ago writing hymns and songs:

    I sat here for hours, writing songs.

    My eyes moisten at the memory.

    The subconscious mind is in contact

    With much that is beyond.

     

    The negative falls away;

    The Buddha-Light envelops me;

    And beings I once knew remain –

    Amida looks back – No-one is left behind.

     

    I didn’t feel alone here,

    For I had left behind

    All those things

    Which stopped me from connecting

    To the whole universe.

     

    Every being spoke to me,

    And the conscious thought of Man

    Was less important to me.

    The subconscious mind is in contact

    With much that is beyond.

     

    Namo Amida Bu!
