Communing with Nature…

.   To have a close and profound relationship with nature, one must give up the mental symbolism (as words) that one was taught to observe through (and function as).  It can only be done without methods and sequential procedures (that were taught to you)… for time is not a factor when being in deep communion with (and as) nature.  When spacial separation, labeling, categorization, and learned recognition come (naturally) to an end (without the effort that time involves), then one — if one is lucky — may, in a most beautiful stillness, be truly in communion with nature.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. That’s just it! We think (with words) that the words can take us there; but they really cannot. Words are merely symbolic representations (that too many of us are satisfied as being). If orangutans go extinct — and that may very well happen if we don’t change things for the better — all the endless words, stories, and pictures (about them) will not (and cannot ever) replace the reality of their being, beauty, magic, and splendor.
    (Please… I’m not suggesting that you wouldn’t mind that orangutans went extinct!)
