Profound truth and what is sacred and timeless cannot ever be found second-hand, nor by clutching to patterns; that is why it cannot be discovered by clinging to another’s authority — neither religious, political, social, nor a (learned, though essentially illusory) central ego’s authority — but only directly, effortlessly, spontaneously. That is one reason why — for so many — it is so very elusive.

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.

Enjoying your blog… and the discussion regarding the egocentric approach to the dispersion of enlightenment… very much. Thank you.
Thank you both! Stay perceptive and caring! 🙂
It amazes me as to how many people choose to cling rather than find themselves.
Yes, Jude, exactly! And even of the few who attempt to find themselves, most are – unfortunately – not aware of how others (in their distant past) have shaped their conditioning. So what they find is largely what was poured into them by (and “as”) others. To go beyond that to where what is discovered is truly pristine and uncontaminated is very arduous. No wonder that immensity and purity is so elusive for so many.
