Mountain of Wisdom Lake of Compassion

Wisdom is eternal and formless.
It can be known but not expressed.

Compassion is the wish for all to know Enlightenment.
It’s skillful means are adaptable and subject to refinement.

Wisdom without compassion is a lonely mountaintop.
Compassion without wisdom is drowning in a lake.

When wisdom is supported by compassion,
There is humility.
When compassion is supported by wisdom,
There is progress.

Together wisdom and compassion dissolve separativity
and the illusion of self,
Revealing the inexpressible 
Infinite, Eternal, Light in motion as pure and perfect Love.

Awake and Free.
