Limited space…

12 comments

 

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 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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (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. 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 —
      Listen! Listen!
      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
