The Particular and the General…


Many of us primarily live in the particular and not in the general, not in — or involving — the whole. We merely function as we were taught, and we exist in (and as) the particular. For so many of us, the particular is apart from the whole; we try to solve things by focusing on the particular as apart from the whole. Then conflict ensues and even more problems arise. We see ourselves primarily as separate human beings. We must change.

Sh.t happens! This handsome, large stone is coprolite… fossilized Dinosaur dung from the Jurassic Period. (It no longer smells!) … Photo by Thomas Peace c. 2022

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. The whole is enormous – we are more aware of that than prior generations before instant-news-worldwide. We are also now immersed in false representations of a large part of the whole. Challenges! How to let it all in, sort the true from deliberately false from misunderstood? I am instinctively open yet my mind presents limits on any given day – leading to a tuning out, a letting-be what I cannot grasp in the “now”.
    Wonderful image.


  2. Now, this is particularly interesting in a general sort of way! LOL πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ Just kidding Tom. My friend, you always leave us thinking about something that shocks our brainwaves. By the way, do you own that fossilized Dinosaur dung? I’ve never seen pretty do-do before. πŸ˜πŸ’©πŸ€ͺ


  3. What a gorgeous piece of dung, Tom! Never thought I’d say those words in a sentence. πŸ˜‰
