"What really raises one’s indignation against suffering is not suffering intrinsically, but the senselessness of suffering."
Wind dyes the blooms’ rain
Petals undulate the sky
Lakes echo without calm
Blue shines towards me
Singing silent melodies
Moon pulls me apart
HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER
The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture.
In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible.
This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.

"You practice according to the practice, with meditation, discipline and wisdom, and break apart this false self, false self covers our Buddha Nature so beings can’t see it. On a cloudy day you can’t see the sun, that’s not to say there is no sun, right? There’s nothing wrong with the sun, it’s just that we can’t see it, our Buddha Nature is just like this."
Amongst white clouds
Time doesn’t pass by
Eternal echo of life
Cosmos in a sigh
