I feel like painting, drawing, again something I participated with at an elementary art competition

 It got lost, damaged, and did not shot it, and so I will redo it

Meanwhile, I am using a 5th eye to see my surrounding (to complement my eyeglasses, whick are the 3rd and 4th eyes )

In Eric's Oct. 15 Post where he wrote also

 Begin Quote:

"Peace – balance - quiet and stillness are often over-rated especially if they are a means by which one denies the totality of all life"

That whole post was very thought provoking Eric. Some very good points to ponder. Thankyou so much.

The Rose November 16, 2005 4:38 AM

The rose is without an why
she is in blossom as she is in blossom
she don't ask to be seen...

This is an translated (from German Language ) a wise women gave me as my personal gift when I was a teenager...

Die Rose ist ohn Warum
sie bluehet weil sie bluehet
und fragt nicht ob man sie siehet.

Thank you Eric for creating this wonderful site.

yes a flower can inspire so much.. seeing (observing) a flower in a garden or a field, a flower gives itself completely. not just its beauty but also its honey to the bee. its the flower's pleasure. and it is the pleasure of the bee to gather the honey. the bee needs the honey and the flower needs the bee to pollenate it. to both, bee and flower, the receiving and the giving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.. harmony  [ send green star]

can you hear it all or do you only hear what is pleasing - in the path of life -- to deny any thing / emotion / thought / resonance or deed is to live sheltered, and is depriving of the soul/ spirit / heart / essence – whatever name you like.

Traveling the path and in awareness it is quite clear that denial of suffering is denial of life

The flowers and the animals – the rocks and the mountains – the waters and the wind all speak. Each with its own voice, it is always there for those who listen

Peace – balance - quiet and stillness are often over-rated especially if they are a means by which one denies the totality of all life

In order to embrace life / God / Goddess / Tao / or whatever word you give it one must accept it all – for those who suffer will find their peace / God / Tao / true understanding in the midst and in the center of their pain

With out that there would be no need for the path.

Thank you for such nice thoughts!  There is something very comforting about the natural flow and progression of all things natural that only our silence seems fitting.  Words are no use but poetry and art sure come close!!!

Soon, Karin is going to share with us & explain to us her experience with the animals in her South Africa.  I truly feel there is a LOT to learn from this .  There is a non-verbal communication that goes beyond and deeper than our verbal & analytical language.  [ send green star]

if only more ppl would take a moment and actually feel the truth in these words.. the world would b so different.. a flower blooms, gives its all, and in all its beauty, it doesnt care where it came from or that tomoro it will fade and die.. there is no past or future, only the eternal NOW

 there's much more to a flower than its beauty.. there lies a lesson and vast truth

A Flower Does Not Talk August 29, 2005 8:00 PM

A Flower Does Not Talk 7:25 PM

A Flower Does Not Talk

Silently a flower blooms
In silence it falls away,
Yet here now, at this moment, at the place,
the whole of the flower, the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the truth of the flower, the truth of the blossom;
The glory of eternal life is fully shining here...
--Zenkei Shabayama
