“The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.” 
― Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith

The Enlightenment throughout history…has always been a mystical interpretation of the experience of awakening to true nature…marked as a timeline……within a movement of a collective thought….

The Enlightenment symbolizes knowledge concerning divine reality…

We make a choice..and then the choice makes us…

Faith and Reason united…

As throughout all of eternity of time….it is and always will be about The Spirit..having a most divine Human experience….awakening….

The nature of human beings as the image of God… is the soul generating the image of God… and as such… the intellect, has the power to be all things.

So, if somebody asks you..”what do you do with your time”..say

“I grow Christ..what do you do”?

“Whoever sees me sees the teaching, and whoever sees the teaching sees me.” 
― Siddhārtha Gautama

“Strange how we decorate pain” Margaret Atwood

When the least one is given..is the most one ever knew….

One calls it plenty….

Revealed in the dreams’ sunsets…

are the starless moments…that one had long forgotten…

Somehow…all the stars filled her soul…..

for safe keeping….

for such a day…

where less was truly more….

and truth was…..

more than enough…..

“And the rest is rust and stardust” Vladimir Nabokov

The Weight of Perception

Birds fly away from the tree [GIF]

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” 
― W.B. Yeats

The most powerful question, one can ask..when observing the distance or the closeness of life….is…..

“What else could this mean”?

There is no one else that has access to the world you carry within you…you are the portal…you are the entrance….

When one opens themselves up to every perception…things create their own focus….

“You are one of the rare people who can separate your observation from your preconception. You see what is, where most people see what they expect.” 
― John Steinbeck, 
East of Eden

These tricky optical illusions fool 97 percent of the population. Can you guess them all?

The Weight of Wonder

“Wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table. Even a tiny fleck of it stops time.” 
― Diane Ackerman

In the paradise of our minds….if we deprive magic….wonder…wanes

Each day..is a new masterpiece..revealed in the mystery we entertain…

“Observe the wonders as they occur around you.
Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through and be silent.”

 Kahlil Gibran

Generous Moments of Recognition

“Let your soul stand cool and composed
before a million universes.” 
― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

You first have to be free to say yes, before you say no….

To know the inner self and the outer reflections….the inner and outer conversations that are always going on…

are one and the same..

is a generous moment of recognition… a finely tuned moment of no judgement…..

“I and this mystery, here we stand.” 
― Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

“In every sound, the hidden silence sleeps.” 
― 
Dejan Stojanovic, The Creator

Nothing is more hidden from us, than the illusion which lives with us day by day.

And our greatest illusion…. is to believe that we are what we think ourselves to be.

Go beyond the thought…..while shedding the patterns of what the acquired self has built…

Become stillness….become a prayer…..

“Every day
I see or hear
something
that more or less

kills me
with delight,
that leaves me
like a needle

in the haystack
of light.
It was what I was born for–
to look, to listen,

to lose myself
inside this soft world

Goodness

banu-kiziltan:  Sözüm yok işte, yüzüm işte akşam Sesimde anıların sessizliği..  Haydar Ergülen

“My friend, you see how perishable are the riches of this world; there is nothing solid but virtue.” 
― Voltaire

One must first know how to trust the self, in order to know how to trust at all….and this requires courage.

Courage is the foundation that gives reality to this trust.

We find our original goodness when we can discover and own these three attitudes.. deeply planted within us….

A trust in inner coherence itself (FAITH)

A trust that this coherence is positive and going somewhere good (HOPE)

A trust that this coherence includes me and even defines me (LOVE)

The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr

One must choose the best each day, without compromise. and nurture the best into habits.
