The Ugly Duckling… or Beyond prayers consisting of learned symbols and images…

Leave a Reply

Deity did not create this universe

and is not responsible for 

what takes place within

(and “as”) it.

Simple organisms

and rather more complex organisms

are in the same boat together.

Deity may not be of a prejudice

that favors one over the other.

One, not sophisticated enough 

to pray, is not favored over

one with propensities to pray.

One that is beautiful 

is not favored over one 

that is ordinary or rather ugly.

But complex organisms



(with real action and affection)

directly help simple organisms

and complex organisms too…

and both the beautiful

and the not so beautiful.

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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (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!...
