Beyond Their Weighty Burden



Don’t let them pull you down

the cold ones and the crazy ones

the twisted politicians and the elephantine pundits


Soar away often from all their heavy patterns

concrete symbols and fixed rituals

and fly free as if you have wings


Then you’ll be beautifully glowing and warmly radiant 

and (as you feel) the pulling weight of their dead images leave

be free of the burdensome gravity of their self-importance

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!...
