The American Transcendentalists

The Garden Of Pensiveness “Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson           ~ Art by Tara TurnerContinue reading “The American Transcendentalists”

‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell

One of my gifts or flaws depending on how you view it, is that I’m always searching for a logical context/framework to better understanding all aspects of LIFE in general; and how we humans interpret/make-sense-of all the ‘beings’ and ‘doings’ of this world that we experience in our somewhat unique way—or as ‘unique’ as 7.9Continue reading “‘The Way of the Hero’ per Joseph Campbell”

Reset

Tao & Zen “To the Taoist mentality, the aimless, empty life does not suggest anything depressing. On the contrary, it suggests the freedom of clouds and mountain streams, wandering nowhere, of flowers in impenetrable canyons, beautiful for no one to see, and of the ocean surf forever washing the sand, no end.”  ~Alan Watts   — Continue reading “Reset”

I learned mostlyContinue reading ““How Einstein Saw the Universe””

The Vortex

Tao & Zen  “I seem, like everything else, to be a center, a sort of vortex, at which the whole energy of the universe realizes itself.. Each one of us, not only human beings but every leaf, every weed, exists in the way it does, only because everything else around it does. The individual andContinue reading “The Vortex”

Nature-Speak

The Garden Of Pensiveness “Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer.”  ~ Radhanath Swami ~ Art by Johanna Wright The beauty of language lies in the interpretation of it.  So how do you translate meaning from a bird’s lilting song or the hauntingContinue reading “Nature-Speak”

Whispers

For some time now I’ve been contemplating how to describe my ‘flowers theory’ of how Nature or ‘Spirit through Nature’ communicates to all other life on the planet.

There are the ‘wide variety of colors’ aspects perContinue reading “Whispers”
