Starry Night (2)

Ironic that the picture of calm was painted while Van Gogh was in an asylum. Perhaps the stars helped ease his troubled mind, as they still do, somehow, as we gaze upon them. But if real stars flicker, would peace of mind not be fickle too, if it was dependent on them? How different they are, these worldly lights, fascinating as they are, from the eternally bright and blissful light of Amituofo’s Pure Land. (Birth in Pure Land alleviates all troubles in mind and body, offering spiritual and physical bliss.)
