Staring up at the night sky, watching those little points of colour and light fade and dance, I saw what Thoreau meant when he talked about the extravagance of nature. Nature provides, provides far more than anyone could ever need. Those stars are always there, shining for us, even when we can’t see them. The natural state of being is to give willingly, abundantly, without expectation of gratitude. That’s rather Buddhist, I think. The cosmos is a bodhisattva!
