Tibet, what can I find in you?

Soil, soil and soil
Nothing special about the mountains, nothing special about the sky, nothing special about the clouds ...
But in such a space, such an altitude ...
With wind, and with light ...
Casully meeting each other, casully drifting apart ...
What we see is an occasion of things getting together (Yuan Fun). The Yuan Fun at this moment, brings beauty beyond the visual sense.
There is no such thing as "things". "Things" become things when elements come together. Once the elements part, which they inveitably will, "things" no longer exist.
Pain results from persistance that the "thing" exists forever. Such as wanting the above mountain to be such a good looking mountain forever.
But when clouds move in, and light goes dim. The mountain turns dull. And years later, the mountain turns into dust.
When you are good enough to see thru persistance, you understand that the "thing" doesn't really exist. Then, pain no longer haunts you. That is the very basic concept of Buddhism.
Ja Da badland.
Ja Da the town.
Spider Man? No, he fixes electric cables.
