Frozen in Time…

.    Curiously, most human beings function within the very significant and important domain of time… yet they have no idea about the fundamental essence and nature of time; nor do they realize the opportunity of going beyond it.   Though it sounds mysterious and rather supernatural — it isn’t — it is a fact that a truly enlightened being can (once and a while) exist in (and “with”) a timelessness that is beyond the limited and unlimited field of time.

.

.

.     excerpt from E. E. Cummings:

.

.

.     what time is it?it is by every star

.     a different time,and each most falsely true;

.     or so subhuman superminds declare

.

.     —nor all their times encompass me and you:

.

.     when are we never,but forever now

.     (hosts of eternity;not guests of seem)

.     believe me,dear,clocks have enough to do

.

.      without confusing timelessness and time.

.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving 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!...

    • Thanks Ellis… I appreciate it! The river has already changed considerably from when these shots were taken a few days ago… and I took a few more today (of neat huge ice patterns that occurred in the middle of the river) that I’ll have to post.

    • Thank you much… but it very possibly may be that all beautiful (and all relatively “not so beautiful”) moments (frozen or not) are “and ever will be” beyond the merely transient. 😉
