Don’t believe that never the twain shall meet…

If, each and every day, one is wisely psychologically dying to the hullabaloo and clamor of superfluous thoughts, then one isn’t afraid of the mystery of dying (as so many are).  Then living and dying aren’t two separate things… nor the latter something horrible to be frightened of.

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!...

  2. And it’s even humorous that when you come to the place where the twain meets, there are others around you who don’t want you to be there, who insist that you MUST fear (as any “normal” person does)and just cannot contemplate “your ending” without some consolation of a heavenly afterlife.

    • Very good points, Cynthia! It reminds me back when i was at my Aunt’s funeral (held at a church that I attended daily when i was in grade school); after the mass, at the church, one of her two daughters (an elder cousin of mine) turned around to me and my wife and said to me: “It’s too bad that you’re a heathen.” (What’s ironic about it is that i probably read more of the bible than any of them over the years; i’m especially appreciative of the very Tao-like, Zen-like, ancient Gospel of Thomas.)
