For Goodness Sake…

Just because you are good does not mean that only good things will happen for (or to) you.  True goodness is not for some later prize, but exists as its own effortless beauty.  True goodness is far beyond the norm; it is beyond what “mostpeople” subscribe to and unexist as.  True goodness involves an immense awareness that exists independent of group ideas, traditions, and values.  The ideas, traditions, and values of others are often binding and limiting.  True goodness, like real creativity, is causeless and effortless… and merely following the patterns of a system or group nullifies profound creativity and independence.  Interestingly, true goodness does not merely cling to being in patterns of experience.  Habitually clinging to “needing experience” is another form of dependence.  A mind twisted up in psychological dependence and in habits is not capable, for the most part, of being intrinsically good.  Goodness exists beyond descriptions and learned concepts.  Most are unwilling to cut themselves off from dependence… dependence on governments, nations, religions, philosophies, ideals, hypnotic effects, learned concepts, experience, and false habits; therefore, real enlightenment and profound goodness eludes them.  Only what is free, independently wise, and whole can be visited by what is immensely sacred and profound.  It cannot, and will not, enter into what is distorted and corrupt.

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. Love the little guy/gal in the photo and your summation is well put. My experiences of receiving goodness have always taken place in the realms spontaneity and the unexpected.
