I’m a mess, I guess. It’s what I asked for, it’s what I needed. Well, you know me better than that, or at least you did and something happened. But once again something’s happened. The confidence you held in us is the rope we almost hung ourselves with. At times I wonder if we really took the steps to break right through it. I know that there were better days, but to see the light and to feel the rays. Life was always back and forth and we were idling or making useless progress. Waiting for the rain to stop. Destination: beautiful. Seems that I’m still waiting for the sun. Someday will come back to us, if you’re willing let it go. Why won’t you just let this be your sun? It seems like yesterday we had the world our way. But some say we’re heading for destruction.
I’ll ask you “What in the world should we do?” This light is green our break is through. Are we not trying or are we trying too hard? Well, you know I never want to miss, I hold on tight and reminisce. But it’s bittersweet to me. When time stands still as it’s trapped inside the letterbox you gave back to me. But I’m the one who keeps on reading. But I’m the one who wants to let it go. I’m the first to speak. You’re the last to know. Another scene that we’re creating, I need to know if we’re still making useless progress.
The majority of Tibetans and many Mongolians adhere to Vajrayana Buddhism, which teaches the transmigration of spirits. There is no need to preserve the body, as it is now an empty vessel. Birds may eat it or nature may cause it to decompose. The function of the sky burial is simply to dispose of the remains in as generous a way as possible (the source of the practice’s Tibetan name). In much of Tibet and Qinghai, the ground is too hard and rocky to dig a grave, and, due to the scarcity of fuel and timber, sky burials were typically more practical than the traditional Buddhist practice of cremation. In the past, cremation was limited to high lamas and some other dignitaries, but modern technology and difficulties with sky burial have led to its increasing use by commoners. (from Wikipedia)
