There is no thinker without the thought.




There is no thinker without the thought.
There is no observer without the observed.
There is no experiencer without the experience.

And if you think that the world and its creatures
are separate from what you are…
think again.

  1. I love your profound wisdom, Tom. I love nature too and the butterfly photo is lovely.


    • Well, love and compassion are a bit different. Can one really “know” or recognize that one is truly loving others? Not really. The beloved may just be an obsession or a fixation; it’s easy to get deceived in this and we must be careful. 🙂
      I love chocolate, by the way! 🙂


      • The English language leaves a lot to be desired when speaking of “love”. I will agree with you that compassion (shared-suffering) is easier to “know” than “love” because do we really mean: agape, eros, phileo, or storge just to use the Greek words. I know that I love a beloved when I am willing to lay down my life to save that beloved. I certainly wouldn’t eat someone or something that I love. 🙂

  2. And it seems with all the technology, people are becoming more isolated from each other, as well as from nature.
    WOW on the image!


  3. This should be mandatory for those who legislate or take power, if only more would heed this truth!
