     What's most meaningful, beautiful, and scary to me is the tear. Itt unites transcendence with empathy, cosmic love with individual suffering, bliss with grief. What a beautiful expression.

     Quite true ! the amazing thing is these tears of joy are sweet as against salt-filled in tears of sadness. Moreover, it appears that tears of happiness, when flowing out of selfless love, flow from the right corner of the right eye and the left corner of the left eye : how specific could emotion get ! Love is more powerful than a canon yet silky smooth when it envelops us.

     Oh the depth of a "tear"!  All the more reason to meditate like Christ!  NOTHING (NO ONE) simple!  In meditation and study, wisdom gained.  Thank you, Sam!
