Love the truth more than man-made fabrications and constructions.  Look effortlessly (now and then) without separation and learned patterns.

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.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. Another great photo. The females seem more colourful than the male, is this normal with butterflies?

    Truth depends on how the facts are interpreted. If only we could accept the fact we could find the truth.

    • Thanks very much! Color, with butterflies between the males and the females,depends entirely on the species.

      Actually, one doesn’t feel that the deepest truth depends on how the facts are interpreted; nor is it something to find. Profound truth exists far beyond the interpretation of facts. Actually, any attempt of the mind to interpret, influence, redefine, pigeonhole, or judge what is that deepest truth… is in itself a distortion, and (therefore) cannot be (or find) that profound truth. That, in my estimation, is one of the reasons why that immensity is so elusive for so many people; most merely look with interpretation, pigeonholing, and preconceptions in mind… which is no real “looking” at all. Real humility, real pristine perception, sees without distortion and accumulated, old patterns… but few, if any, really do that; the old cannot grasp the truly new. For most, unfortunately, it doesn’t manifest… and never will.

  2. Thanks for the very illuminating reply. I don’t have the intellectual capacity to reply. I find it a fascinating subject and do think about it from time to time. To know profound truth must be a very nice place to be – a bit like me sitting down in my garden and thinking about nothing else but the lovely bees visiting the lovely flowers – or am I being selfish because deep down maybe I am only thinking about myself and my own contentment?

    • It’s not an intellectual thing; it’s more of an awareness thing.

      Profound truth is not to be known… it’s not even within (or of) the field of the known. Therefore it is indescribable, (far beyond what mere words, mere limited symbols, can convey). It cannot be told – but it is there – and it is far deeper than what language (or any other medium) can communicate.
