There is but ONE True Medicine

It matters not if medicine is old or new

so long as it can cure.

It matters not if theories come from East or West

so long as they be true.

Jen-Hsou Lin, Taipei


There is but ONE true Medicine,
the Medicine that heals the wounds,
of cosmos, spirit, psyche, soma, earth & time.
Man & creatures merely come & go
in circles, spirals & in time,
& medicine dreamed by mortal minds
can never foil the longterm dream of God.

Anonymous, after Guinness
