Only stones are found in temples
Only words are found in prayers
Only sound is found in laughter
Only salt is found in tears

Only flesh is found in love
Only sight is found in eyes
Only lips are found in smiles
Only breaths are found in sighs

Only desire is found in dreams
Only money is found in careers
Only laughter is found in friendship
Only wrinkles are found in years

Only time is found in breath
Only peace is found in death.

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!
