Of the mind...

"We live inside a self-woven conceptual cocoon that insulates us from raw reality. ...At every moment we tile raw pixels with concepts, we automatically project onto reality the entire set of attributes that our culture associates with those concepts: tables and chairs are supposed to be objects of the world outside the mind, so every time we look around we see objects outside mind, as opposed to the raw pixels of the tapestry of mind."

~from "Why Materialism is Baloney", pg. 73, by Bernardo Kastrup


Oh passion-filled days, all steadfast and young, 
know that the next year will surpass all others, 
because it is new, and because it will be filled 
with moments that will remain unspoken 
of harsh and light, right along with your steady heart. 

We can give ourselves a gift this year: 
to live the life of wonder. 
To stare silently into the sky and wish for 
everything we could not possibly imagine or see. 

When we allow ourselves the sweetness of now, 
we may have all of the adventures
life has to offer in the coming year.

Quotes of the day... 12/31/14

On the eve of 2015...

Let's forgive ourselves for this year, 
for all of our transgressions and seeming failures. 
Because we are alive, they are all miracles for us.

Part of us is better for it, and “all of us” 
is lovelier still, even for what we “thought” we failed…
even for those we felt we assailed…

We sang songs we did not even know 
upon life’s wandering voyage. 

We were brilliant not only once or twice, but many more. 

These experiences have made us 
more whole, and not less, 
as we wonder endlessly about who we are.

Because ‘Who We Are’ is miraculous!
We are still here, another year older, 
another moment more beautiful and aged, 
and yet more youthful than ever before.
     ~ adapted, Francesca Biller

Clean slate, go!

Quotes of the day... 12/30/14

When we start to think the problem is out there,
we must stop ourselves! 
That thought is the problem. 
     ~adapted, Stephen Covey 

If we do not see ourselves participating 
in the manifestation of our realities, 
we will always be victims and never creators. 
     ~adapted, Deepak Chopra

As we balance thinking and listening
we realize the power we have
to create every moment.
     ~ adapted, Harold W. Becker

Quotes of the day... 12/29/14

When you are grateful, fear disappears
and abundance appears.
     ~ Anthony Robbins

Discipline yourself to think and speak
only what you want to be reality 
and watch reality change 
right before your very eyes.

The courage to imagine the otherwise 
is our greatest resource, adding color 
and suspense to all our life. 
     ~ Daniel Boorstin
