Time is Sequence, Thought is Sequence, Light is Sequence, and Sound is Sequence, but that Great Sacredness is beyond Sequence…


Time, evolution, light, sound, and thought/thinking all consist of a series of sequences. We live in a domain consisting of sequences. That is our life. I am suggesting here that great spirituality exists timelessly beyond what is merely sequential. Can you get to it by doing a series of things in time? No. However, is living a life that is orderly, perceptive, and caring (within time) essential? Yes. That sacredness may not be separate from an orderly, perceptive, caring life. However, if your mind exclusively consists of sequences and sequential patterns, you likely will never be visited by the timeless sacred. Sequences, per se, only consist of the partial (i.e., fragmentary patterns) and what is partial is not what partakes of the whole. This is why an orderly, meditative mind is crucial… but it is not something that one can practice or perform as a technique.



My previous blog posting included a photo of T-rex, my pet parrot; i used to breed parrots. Some readers expressed interest, so the following is an audio of T-rex. Needless to say, he is quite a character. (In the audio, at first, he rings a bell — which, often i think, is to summon me, as if i’m some kind of butler —and, when i don’t come running, at 4 seconds into the audio tape, he says “Oh, what the heck?!” Then he whistles a summoning whistle … and subsequently, he diverges, and his wolf whistles follow. He whistles better than i can. At 22 seconds he, quietly, says something — as if to himself — like “specific.” At second 25, he quietly says “stupid,” which is probably about me and not coming as he wants me to. At around second 34, he says “come on” a couple of times. At second 37, he says, “hello.” Then, among summoning whistles, he quietly — as if to himself — says “specific” again and says “come on” repeatedly. Personally, i think that he thinks that i’m his private butler whom he can summon whenever he wants; he rings that god-forsaken bell and expects me to come running. Sesame Street is what can be heard in the background. I put Sesame Street on tv for them daily, which they enjoy and learn things from.)
Let’s face it, we are our pets’ menial servants. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. OH TOM – This is just Hilarious – thank you so much – and thank you for interpreting – I just LOVED this! Please let’s hear from T rex again! And his color takes my breath away… and you are so funny – and it’s so true – we are our companion animals’ servants! Mine run my life, and I say this without apology. By the way I was watching Hope and Lucy – my darlings -dogs’ ears twitching as I played the audio – so I did it again and they both showed up at the computer!!!


  2. T Rex is frustrated at disruptive โ€˜sequencesโ€™ it seems ๐Ÿค” He just wants a peaceful life and to receive what he loves in a โ€˜sequentialโ€™ pattern.
    Iโ€™m with T Rex ๐Ÿฆœ ๐Ÿฅฐ


  3. Love this Tom, “if your mind exclusively consists of sequences and sequential patterns, you likely will never be visited by the timeless sacred.” I also LOVE T-Rex! How can you not love a face like that! ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿฆœ๐Ÿฆœ


  4. T-rex is such a bright spark! Thanks for the audio and the interpretation! As with my little grand nephew in the US, I seem to need a running translation ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
    I’m sad that the sacred is not accessible to disorderly minds, though.


  5. T-rex is beautiful, those colors exquisite. I like that over-the-shoulder look he is giving you. The audio clip was fun to listen to as well.


      • That is good Tom – T-rex is a beautiful bird, much more handsome than the original T-rex. I am doing well – very behind here as usual. Thank you for asking. All these windy days makes me remember the video of you with the special kite … we are having still another dangerously windy day tomorrow.
