A song of wisdom

This is a lovely painting by my friend Sylvia Bower. For me, it embodies these beautiful verses from the Dhammapada:

THOSE WHO AWAKEN
NEVER REST IN ONE PLACE.
LIKE SWANS, THEY RISE
AND LEAVE THE LAKE.
ON THE AIR THEY RISE
AND FLY AN INVISIBLE COURSE,
GATHERING NOTHING, STORING NOTHING.
THEIR FOOD IS KNOWLEDGE.
THEY LIVE UPON EMPTINESS
THEY HAVE SEEN HOW TO BREAK FREE.
