You need space (don’t you?) to discover “exciting
things” out there
(out there apart from what you are)
There’s only one problem with that
that they didn’t teach you
… which is:
Such space is always limited
and a mind that merely depends
on that limitation
is always limited
A mind that sagaciously goes beyond
such limited space
dies to limitation
and (in such psychological dying)
lives in (and “as”)
a boundless realm
beyond the isolation of
symbolic words, egotistical centers,
habitual cravings, and restricted beliefs
Mostpeople depend on limitation
and are that limitation
And there is nothing perceived
apart from what you are

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.

Interesting thoughts as always 🙂 I like that young kids have no perception of limitations. 🙂
Thank you, Sci! 🙂 I understand what you mean about young kids; however, they are often all too contaminated by society’s teachings (even very early in life)… so their perceptions are not that spectacular.
I think this applies more so today, than when I was a kid. I wonder where creative spirits will come from in the future?
Yes, very few break out of that cycle.
Thank you much, joke_dev! 🙂
I unfortunately know a lot of people that are very limited like horses with blinders but of course they are not my friends. Hope you know some good unlimited people (and birds), hehe. Have a nice day, Thomas, regards Mitza
I’ve been waiting (even as a kid) to meet local people who do not have blinders on… but, unfortunately, I have not been lucky whatsoever. Tweetie seems about as perceptive as any!
from Stephen Crane:
“Have you ever made a just man?”
“Oh, I have made three,” answered God,
“But two of them are dead
And the third —
And you will hear the third of his defeat.”
It seems you have been born in the wrong place and me, too. But I hope that at least you met a very few persons (and birds) that you appreciated. Thanks for this story. Have a nice weekend and greetings to Tweetie, regards Mitza
Wow beautiful colors! Great shot Tom! 🙂
Thank you, Marcela! 🙂 I like it too!
