All of us labor in webs spun long before we were born, webs of heredity and environment, of desire and consequence, of history and eternity. Haunted by wrong turns and roads not taken, we pursue images perceived as new but whose providence dates to the dim dramas of childhood, which are themselves but ripples of consequence echoing down the generations.

“I think for me, what it really comes down to is the realization that hell,” he paused for a moment, letting the full weight of the word fill the room, “hell is taking everything personally. And I know this is true because I used to take everything personally, and it     was hell." 

 

~ Devendra Banhart, interviewed on Tricycle

Quote

The light of love, the purity of grace,
The mind, the music breathing from her face,
The heart whose softness harmonized the whole,—
And oh, that eye was in itself a soul!

 

- Lord Byron

“I wish neither to possess nor to be possessed. I no longer covet ‘paradise’. More important, I no longer fear ‘hell’. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, but I did not observe it, until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, consuming myself.”

 

Bruce Lee

“The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life.” ~Eckhart Tolle

There will be discomfort.  There may be pain.

This does not mean there must be suffering.

 

 

Suffering is a crisis of perception.

 

This realization arose unbidden in my mind in the midst of chronic extreme pain that lasted years.

i was semi-crippled then.

Confined to a chair most days, or walking with a cane.

 

 

 

There are no prisons but what mind creates and then inhabits.

Quote

"The Way of Listening is to be giddy as though soused. Be dumber and dumber. Let others deploy themselves, and accordingly I shall know them."

 

Right and wrong whirl around him like spokes on a wheel, but the sovereign does not complot. Emptiness, stillness, non-action—these are the characteristics of the Way. By checking and comparing how it accords with reality, [one ascertains] the "performance" of an enterprise.

 

- Han Fei

..."the performance of an enterprise".

 

What a perfect way in which to frame wu wei.  The subtleties involved, and often the length of the 'enterprise', are so variable.  And yet in grounded silence the 'enterprise' is hatched, the vision put into motion.  The results are obtained without anybody but you knowing there was an enterprise at all.

 

I love it.

Me.

 

You Can't Handle The Truth. 

or maybe you can.  personally i find people who've found The Truth have only found a truth.  

one that's right for them.  later you find newer truths make you discard earlier ones. 

i only have room for 2 truths and a pocketful of maybes that help me through the day.

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, and the dimpling stream runs laughing by, when the air does laugh with our merry wit, and the green hill laughs with the noise of it.

 

When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it. But for the sake of defending those that do

How it is?  How it is?!

I have no idea how it is.

 

I only know how it seems to me.

We're all looking from the point of view of our own reality tunnels. And when we begin to realize that we're all looking from the point of view of our own reality tunnels, we find that it is much easier to understand where other people are coming from.

 

All the ones who don't have the same reality tunnel as us do not seem ignorant, or deliberately perverse, or lying, or hypnotized by some mad ideology, they just have a different reality tunnel. And every reality tunnel might tell us something interesting about our world, if we're willing to listen.

 

Robert Anton Wilson

 

We all experience life from the center of our own awareness.  This is perhaps why presenting facts seldom changes people's opinion, because their opinions are created from the center of their awareness, and any facts are viewed through this lense.

 

do any two people see the same room the same way?

Quotes from the greatest leader of all time--- Marcus Aurelius

 

1.The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.

2.When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

3.I am going to be meeting with people today who talk too much – people who are selfish, egotistical, ungrateful. But I won’t be surprised or disturbed, for I can’t imagine a world without such people.

4.He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the universe.

5.You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realise this, and you will find strength.

6.Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.

7.Be tolerant with others and strict with yourself.

8.Do everything as if it were the last thing you were doing in your life.

9.Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask the following question ‘what fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticise?’

10.Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.

11.Our anger and annoyance are more detrimental to us than the things themselves which anger or annoy us.
