There was this me… and every time this me looked…


There was this me

and every time this me looked

it saw what me was looking at

(This me was very orthodox…

being brought up by orthodoxy,

being cultivated by — and “as”– orthodoxy)

This me thought it was something separate

from the perceptions that it was taught it “had”

There was this movement without a center

and, when looking was taking place,

perceiving was what was…

without some separate center 

doing the perceiving

(This nonme was not very orthodox…

having psychologically died t0 — and “as”– orthodoxy)

There was this primitive conditioning

and every time this cadaverous conditioning looked

it saw what it was programmed to primitively see

There was this freedom from the known

and often — beyond indoctrination —

it moved livingly/compassionately/sagaciously

without a static blueprint

without some canned and pickled doctrine

that — in rigidity —  it would blindly cling to

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!...

  1. This explains it so well and I really like these two lines:
    ‘and every time this cadaverous conditioning looked
    it saw what it was programmed to primitively see’


      • This is it, unavoidable, therefore one is embracing and understanding the issues – the Middle Way…
