A New Garden

There is a place in a World beyond all other Worlds.
How do I know this?
Because every moment is a new moment, a new day, a new night, a new breath, a new life.
Each and every one is a New Joy.

Look through the walls of perception and see the vast treasures of the whole universe.
Like a rushing river it all seems to go on forever.
I wonder, where does all this come from, and I wonder where will it all end?
