He was totally (and repeatedly) bored by the things he saw…

because within his brain was a putrid, stagnant, significant flaw.

 

She is joyfully thrilled by the majestic things she sees…

because her mind transcends the musty past like a wise, cleansing spring breeze.

 

Life is sadly monotonous only if one’s mind becomes rather stale and dead.

Look at things anew… with childlike, fresh rejuvenation instead!

[Excerpts from the ancient Gospel of Thomas:

Jesus said, “If your leaders say to you, ‘Look, the (Father’s) kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the (Father’s) kingdom is within you and it is outside you.

When you know yourselves, then you will be known, and you will understand that you are children of the living Father. But if you do not know yourselves, then you live in poverty, and you are the poverty.”

His disciples said to him, “When will the kingdom come?”
Jesus said, “It will not come by waiting for it. It will not be a matter of saying ‘here it is’ or ‘there it is.’ Rather, the kingdom of the father is spread out upon the earth, and men do not see it.”

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. I agree with the others, the photo is great. I certainly like how you applied the will or lack thereof to what life is like or can be, “perception.” Great scripture quote.
