Foolish people eat unhealthy foods and swallow foolish thoughts.  The wise man is beyond such indelicacies.

True meditation is beyond will and methods.  You can’t, in a mental framework of conditioning, make meditation happen any more than you can make God come to you in enlightenment.

Profound awareness goes beyond the separation between the perceiver and the images perceived.

Except for moments of pristine insight, every thought (including the thought of “I”) is a conditioned response reaction.

Perception merely through the mental screen of learned and absorbed thoughts and images isn’t really much perception at all.

Most think way more than they feel.  It is best the other way around!

The historical Christ was killed because he didn’t follow hierarchical orthodoxy… and now, many hundreds of years later, orthodoxy claims him as their own.

The purpose of life is not merely to feel good but to make a meaningful difference in this world.

How can you be free and perceptive if you are behind the gilded cage bars made of rigid beliefs and fabrications?

Nothing you can accumulate in your lifetime is worth the price of your integrity.

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!...

  6. Great shot! Were you lying on the ground or was the placement of the thistles staged? Either way, you get an “A” for vision and ingenuity!

  7. What an amazing shot, Tom!
    I think we have too many selfish, self-centered, greedy… people. They don’t see anything wrong with it. 😕
