The following, including the poem, is an excerpt from my book, “The Eternal Fountain of Youth.”  (The book is extremely strong medicine; no one should read it unless they are very stable.  eternalfountainofyouth.com):

When we think that the big can exist without the little, we are wrong.  When we think that left can exist without right, we are wrong.  When we think that the sailor is not the sails, we are wrong.  When we think that the mountain-climber is not the mountain that he conquers, we are wrong.  When we think that the figure skater is not very slick, we are wrong.  When we think that the magician is not an illusion, we are wrong.  When we think that the “perceiver” is truly separate from “the perceived,” we are wrong. 

from Walt Whitman:

 

When the script preaches instead of the preacher,

When the pulpit descends and goes instead of the carver that

      carved the supporting desk,

When I can touch the body of books by night or by day, and

      when they touch my body back again,

When a university course convinces like a slumbering woman and

      child convince,

When the minted gold in the vault smiles like the night-watchman’s

      daughter,

When warrantee deeds loafe in chairs opposite and are my friendly

      companions,

I intend to reach them my hand, and make as much of them as

      I do of men and women like you.

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. Thanks, Mitza! Real beauty – which you must realize too – is not so much with seeing with the eyes; it is more what involves feeling and deeply understanding.
