It's not that you journey through time; it's that you are time on its journey (as all of us are). pic.twitter.com/XFC9WMSB5d
from E.E. Cummings:
so rah-rah-rah democracy
let's all be as thankful as hell
and bury the statue of liberty
(because it begins to smell)
When we try to crystallize truth, a fluid thing, we crystallize our minds, we limit ourselves. Organized belief has no place in truth.
Don't just run from suffering and chase after pleasure like a damned programmed robot; roll up those sleeves and truly help others.
What you see is not, psychologically, separate from what you are.
Not: "Learn as if you were to live forever."................ But: Learn because you are eternity living!
If the instrument of the mind is distorted, then what it perceives will be false, twisted, misinterpreted, and pigeonholed with prejudice.
One need not wince at one's fears & endlessly run from them if one sagaciously realizes that one is not at all separate from what they are.
When you merely look with delimitation,habitually fixing the boundaries that separate one thing from another, you are not really perceiving.
Never, ever, grow up! Never ever let them contaminate your youth and inner joy with their old words and systems.
We're fairly good at looking at (& working with) practical matters & details, but not so much regarding perceiving (and helping) the whole.
True insight is instantaneous and timeless; no time - or practice - is involved for it to finally come about.
Vicarious images about what others go through in life are...
Many will be intrepid and fearless as they jostle the crowds on Black Friday. I wish they would be as passionate about truth and goodness.
I don't care how many people show up at my funeral if -- for the time being -- I'm the only one who is dead.
A man without a warm, caring heart is like a musician without thumbs.
We are -- very simply put -- as the different fingers of one hand.
The clock indicates the moment—but what does eternity indicate?

Vicarious images about what others go through in life are not enough; one has to feel it in... wp.me/p2Tbw4-Hr
Strangely, the major, famous poets of the world all (curiously) support and express deep, unusual truth/wisdom... as my book testifies to.
Most of us still function much like separate, conflicting, crude animals... yet think that we are sophisticated and evolved.
What is sacred is actual illimitable energy. What is thought/thinking is the limited/virtual/symbolic absence of actual energy.
The truly sacred, the truly whole and orderly, rarely visits man...because man is rarely nonfragmented and orderly. It can't dwell in chaos.
Whatever we do is recorded and reflected in (and "as") part of the universal whole forever and always.
At one with the atheists and "the believers in God," at one with the rich and powerful... and the small and very poor.
One doesn't ever need to seek out the sacred. If u r (without greedy methods) truly innocent, silent, and humble, the sacred will seek you.
Being popular and self-confident isn't what is important; being caring, alive, compassionate... wp.me/p2Tbw4-Ht
There is a special reason for being innocent. It isn't what atheists believe in. If it visits u, u feel a trillion times more alive than B4.
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church-
I keep it, staying at Home-
With a Bobolink for a Chorister-
And an Orchard for a Dome-
Opinion is a flitting thing
But Truth outlasts the Sun
If then we cannot own them both
Possess the oldest one.
Many will be intrepid and fearless as they jostle the crowds on Black Friday; i wish they would be as passionate about truth and goodness.
He who practices virtue is (likely) not virtuous. Rote practices tend to make the mind dull and robotic.
For eons, stodgy, old men sent young men to war to fight over musty, old ideals; that needs to stop.

The crime is the punishment; no sane mind is the expression of hurt, harm, and disorder.

We worship thought - even the atheists do - but thought (tho a useful tool) is limited, symbolic and merely virtual. pic.twitter.com/pM07aDgxLA
Even within the most diminutive creature... whole universes are swirling.
Thought is a residual remnant; it is a virtual record of what was or what might be. One can go beyond such a shallow domain.
Peace - within and without - is universal intelligence.
There are so many non-foods in our food markets these days. Most people's dogs & cats are probably eating far healthier. Boycott the crap.
Don't build a thick, psychological wall to protect yourself from outside threats; don't distance yourself from your own fears & perceptions.
To go beyond the pettiness of superficial dreams - & all are superficial - one's mind must be very aware all day long & be of intense order.
Profound insight and deep holistic perception is never the result of fractional thinking; most all thought is fractional and "broken up."
Please live each moment with awareness and integrity... not with separative indifference.

A world without universal peace is broken and distorted by man. We must change that.
"And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier."

The sacred is of tremendous energy/power; but, interestingly, it doesn't visit the powerful...it visits the innocent that do not seek power.
The real truth undoubtedly is far from what most of us suspect. It is totally different.
