Timeless Immensity

24 comments

 

There is a timeless, radiant, boundless, eternal energy,

beyond all patterns and demarcations,

beyond all violence, disorder, and chaos.

It is an infinite, miraculous flame that cannot merely be described

with the shadows of limited words and symbols (and all words are limited).

Though many would call it “God,” it is beyond (and has nothing to do with) held beliefs;

it belongs to no country, no world, no religion; 

it has no gender; it is not of any one species, nor organization.

It did not create this universe, and it is beyond the reactions of any organisms

(of highly evolved or barely evolved types);

and their shadows cannot infringe on its unadulterated immaculateness.

Mere reactions cannot perceive it or recognize it,

for it is an action beyond all mental forms, patterns, sorrows, and devices.

No systems or methods can capture it,

for it is beyond cause and effect paradigms,

beyond what mere groping can achieve.

Its immeasurability places it beyond all mental yardsticks and psychological gauges.

It is well beyond the musty, shadowy residue of symbolic thought (and all thought is symbolic).

You cannot visit it, but it can visit you.

However, that “you,” that it may visit, must effortlessly be beyond the limitations of symbols,

residual reactions, and mechanical responses.

Desire it… and it will not manifest.

The limited cannot have a true relationship

with the unlimited.

Profound, living mystery is beyond jaded reactions

from (and “as”) the stale past.

To live without always (exclusively) depending

on the symbols and images of the stale, dead past

can be true joy.  

That joy may be (or may not be) visited by that profound mystery

that is beyond time’s limitations.

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!...

  2. The main problem lies in where the fungus is living:
    under the nail. Any kind of injury may affect the foot such as fractures,
    bruises or trauma. If you don’t know the cause of a pain, tap on the
    image of that pain and you’ll probably get a measure
    of relief.
