Sayings from the Pure Land: WISDOM BY Siddha Alfred Schmielewski
Greg Henry Waters Group, Oct 12, 2013 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 17 pages
Ignorance is the root of pain and suffering, fear is the root of evil, evil is the root of desperation. How senseless is all this, how useless is it. to fill hallucinations with meaning. True wisdom manifests when we lie on the earth, facing the everlasting sky, when our heart flows silently and towards the nameless God on the wings of love and love and longing.

This book or sayings speaks about the inner life of a yogi and what he sees or she sees. When we become very simple we come closer to wisdom. When our mind goes on like a television speaker or weather man. They speak so fast to get so many words in a minute. This is not the life of a yogi for a yogi;s mind is calm and not full of a lot of words but is full of a lot of wisdom. Like for example when I write this review the words just come out without me thinking about them. It is just creative or when I play a solo of improvisation the music just comes out without me thinking. This is a life of a yogi. Alfred read all these ancient books and he wrote about his reaction to them just as I am writing my reaction to this review of the book. I first read in 1967 or 68 in Toronto.
This is a book of poems about wisdom and the life of a Yogi.
