Beyond the ordinary mind…



There were two entities.  One was rather crass.  It merely went on as an extension of society… immoral, indifferent, separate, closed, common, compulsive, stale, rather indifferent about nature, respectable.  There was another entity.  It was open, compassionate, aware, whole, moral beyond the ills of society, in close relationship with nature, global.  Highly spiritual, it did not care to belong to any separative government nor religion that (separates man from man contributing to war).  It was a danger to all separative elements of the false. 

One of the entities was often bored.  It would frequently need to find escape in all kinds of entertainment (and with various forms of drugs).  It was often composed of recurring fears.  It depended on walls of isolation for its very existence (isolated existence).  The other entity was often content in and of itself.  That self, however, was nothing to be measured, for no limited walls defined it by limited space nor limited boundaries.  Perceiving that it was not separate from the fears, the fears were understood and quickly dissipated; either that or they never existed (or needed to exist) in the first place.  Limitation breeds fear.  Limitation is of measurement and recognition; (recognition is a form of measurement).

One of the two minds continued to go deeply beyond itself to where there was no measurement, no time.  The other mind measured constantly.  Its essence mostly involved time and measurement.  Measurement takes (and is) time.  One of the minds was satisfied with superficial things; one of the minds went far beyond the superficial.  One of the minds (without the measurements of equations) understood all about existence, time, and the timeless.  One of the minds did not care about anything much other than about small details and banal experiences; it understood little of time and nothing concerning the timeless.  It, unfortunately, was never visited by anything immensely beyond the mundane.

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!...

  1. simple brain of monkey prefer sacred to profane but it hard in midst of darkness to see light sometime.


  2. all over the world there are entities like the ones you described like there is ebony and ivory on a piano. Let’s make a club of entities that go deeply beyond themselves and you are the president. Then we have at least one intelligent president in the USA, hehe.


    • Thanks, Mitza, but i wouldn’t want to be president of such a club. Such a club could do things by intelligent consensus without the need for a leader.
      What they have now, for president in the U.S., is abominable. He is very unbalanced. A man like that with the nuclear code! What were people thinking?! The world has a real crazy on its hands and we are in for real problems if he remains in office.


  3. Your prose is so very thought provoking. It’s a kind of “Sunday school” for me.. so to speak! Thank you for always inspiring my inner spirit.
