Lets be great together!

Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to’.

Lao Tzu
“I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems. And I’m going to talk about it everywhere I go. I know it isn’t popular to talk about it in some circles today. I’m not talking about emotional bosh when I talk about love, I’m talking about a strong, demanding love. And I have seen too much hate… I have decided to love. If you are seeking the highest good, I think you can find it through love. And the beautiful thing is that we are moving against wrong when we do it, because John was right, God is love. He who hates does not know God, but he who has love has the key that unlocks the door to the meaning of ultimate reality.”

Erosion - Denudation - One with All

"Erosion is the process that breaks things down. This breaking down and weathering the land is called denudation. Denudation is the process of erosion. In nature, large things are broken down into smaller things. Boulders become sand. Mountains are rained on and become hills. The pieces of the mountain become smaller pieces and go down the sides of hills. Weathering and erosion always happen in a downhill direction."

It's an aggressive process, but the end result is a delicate vulnerability. All that continuous breaking down makes it possible to glimpse the layers beneath our skin, our beliefs. To glimpse our unbreakable essential core. Our essence. We're too solid in our appearance, in our personalities and opinions, but Life wear us down and brings us back to being dust. Only as dust you can flow and travel and become part of everything.

“Relax without laziness
Focus without tension.
Perceive without projecting.
Witness without judging.
Enjoy without craving.
Reflect without imagining.
Love without condition.
Give without demanding.
Receive without possessing.
Serve without self-seeking
Challenge without dominating.
Meditate without identity.
Correct without blaming.
Overcome without pride.
Laugh without cynicism.
Cry without Pity.
Confront without hatred.
Guide without superiority.
Be without self-defining.
Live without arrogance.
Enter without self-importance.
Depart without regret.
Be one with God.”

Why design weapons?

Common, isn't it obvious that if you own a gun you're eventually going to use it?
Why design any weapon at all? For hunting??? Biathlon?

Watching the footage of politicians smiling while they shake their hands in agreement with one another about another mass murder weapon, got me thinking... they are our representatives, who are they really?

A politician, political leader, or political figure (from Classical Greek πόλις, "polis") is a person who is involved in influencing public policy and decision making. a person experienced in the art or science of government; especially : one actively engaged in conducting the business of a government.

So, it's all business, and the ones that choose to follow the politic career are the greediest of all...

One of the most common traits that clinicians talk about for politicians is that of narcissism. Typical narcissists have a grandiose sense of self, with an inflated sense of self importance and an elevated need for attention, status and recognition. In order to compensate for their fragile self esteem, narcissistic people become preoccupied with their self image and intensely sensitive to perceived shame or humiliation.

So, again, you have greed and inflated sense of self... Do I need to say more?

Charles de Gaule once said "I have come to the conclusion that politics are too serious a matter to be left to the politicians", so right!!! but himself a war general and politician...

So what can anyone who believes in humanity do to change...? The truth? Not much really, except to be the best you can be to yourself and others. Be good...

Hey, but if you get to be really good at something and actually there's lot's of people listening to you, show them an alternative way to make love and not war! Love is all WE need ; )

They were screaming to see the Beatles...  buzzing insects, where are you? Buzz some music into this world...

choose to Fall

“You must want to know the truth more than you want to feel secure in order to fully awaken to the fact that you are nothing but Awakeness itself.”


Yeah, you've gotten hurt before, but you know what, you probably still are... See if you recognize yourself in the following text:

"She’s passionate in a doomed way; passionate about these tiny moments of routine she’s still managing to enjoy. Passionate about her morning coffee or the way she climbs the stairs.Yet one can clearly see that the light’s been taken out of her and she doesn’t want to get back to it. She can’t allow herself that love or openness because there’s too much pain.”
[attributed to] Juliette Binoche, on her role in Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Bleu: Trois Couleurs (via heliophobus)

But, before you take that leap, take a deep breath and find inside yourself the reason why you're choosing to move forward; the reason behind your words.

You're carrying all you need, but you're clouded by fear and doubt.
So Fall!
FALL IN LOVE, for your mind, body, life, friends and maybe even for that "better half"

“Even the most exalted states and most exceptional spiritual accomplishments are unimportant if we cannot be happy in the most basic and ordinary ways, if we cannot touch one another and the life we have been given with our hearts.”

Life as a Sport...

What if I changed my beliefs? What if everything I believe was no longer serving me and I had to build a totally new belief system? This world is so vast, so unpredictable and society is everything but that. Society is small, is biased. Can one really survive if it returns into the wild?

I wish to open my mind, but I am scared.

Do it Now

“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”

Hugh Laurie
