enlivened again

I am terrified to think of the catastrophe that awaits humanity if we do not walk forward in love, and humbled to think of the age we will initiate if we do, believing it will be the age Tielhard de Chardin dreamt of when he said: “Someday, after mastering the wind, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of Love. And then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”….Mark Nepo

self-transformation and the friction of our assumptions seem to ride against the grain of beauty and conscious experience……we are embedded here, within our absorption with struggle…….

For those who have found the still point of eternity, around which all- including themselves- revolves, everything is acceptable as it is; indeed, can be experienced as glorious and wonderful. The first duty of the individual, consequently, is simply to play his given role- as do the sun and moon, the various animal and plant species, the waters, the rocks, and the stars- without resistance, without fault; and then, if possible, so to order his mind as to identity its consciousness with the inhabiting principle of the Whole…..Joseph Campbell

to know of light, to be with dark….

No individual exists in its own nature, independent of all other factors of life. Each has the totality of the Universe at its base. All individuals have, therefore, the whole Universe as their common ground, and this universality becomes conscious in the experience of enlightenment, in which the individual awakens into his own true all-embracing nature…..Lama Govinda

  1. Curious to see how so many people I know from my religious training so many years ago foll ow Fox news, and subscribe to derision, if not outright hate, for those who would seek to establish their own faith and following in different parts of the world. Is someone deliberately selling fear and loathing so as to profit from it … and if they are, the good people of the world from every walk of life, belief, and faith, had better wake up from their dream of blood lust and turn toward the light. Ice ages are terrible places to raise children … May warm sun guide your day…
