In his series Swamp Song, Loïc Thisse ventures into a seemingly foreign land. The deeper he appears to get into the hostile, swampy undergrowth that is both unsettling and gloomy (not unlike the photogenic areas of the southern United…
Je suis quelque part dans ce post !! (Mais ceci mis à part, même sans ça, allez voir les photos de Loïc Thisse !)
“You are an explorer, and you represent our species, and the greatest good you can do is to bring back a new idea, because our world is endangered by the absence of good ideas. Our world is in crisis because of the absence of consciousness.” ~
“Spirit has many, many meanings in the dictionary, but to the ancients it meant one thing: conscious life. It meant life, purpose; life containing within itself the archetypes of all living; life that survives every form that exists even in the cosmos itself; but life that is infinitely mindful of the sparrow’s fall. This spirit was therefore an infinite life, a life centering everywhere, its circumference nowhere. This one life—unlimited, unbounded, beyond definition—becomes not only a spirit, a tremendous, all-pervading life power, but within the mysterious depths of this spirit we find the infinite will, the infinite wisdom, and the infinite love.”—Excerpted from Manly P Hall Lecture # 192 - “The Magnetic Field of the Earth: A Study of Energy Resources.” (via nuclearharvest)
“The spiritual people will always be viewed by the rest of the world as “crazy”. Pagans, Starseeds, and Indigo’s all have a strong belief in oneness. We all understand that we are one and come from the same source, we understand we are spiritual beings, souls of light temporarily living in a human body. The world views us as crazy for not taking sides and for not hating someone for being who they are, we’re crazy for seeing we all have the same heart and same soul from universal source. I don’t care, let them view us as crazy, let them live in their separated illusion of hate, we refuse to live life on a low frequency of ego, they will never understand us, they will never understand the spiritual people”—Divine Keeylen (via divinekeeylen)
“Drama is usually some kind of control .Everything becomes negative …It is forcing someone or a situation to follow your command ..instead of letting it go to be what it is …and will become .
Fear becomes our guide then ..we create drama to gain some sense of ‘control’ .But lately that doesn’t work anymore ..and we have to accept what is ..wither we like it or not .
Acceptance is something that is new to us … It is allowing ..and we have never been able to allow ..
Trusting that everything will be on schedule and everything will be all right,
is a trust that we are only now ,beginning to understand ..
This is a new and exciting time for us …we can resist what is happening ..and stay foolish in our beliefs ..
Or we can laugh at this and understand , that it is incredible that life is really for us ..and to believe this ..and smile .
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”—Nicholas Sparks (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
“There is no permanent Hell, there is no permanent Heaven. Therefore, the suffering that we sense during this transition of life is not a permanent condition that we need to be afraid of. It’s not where we’re going to end up. We end liberated from the suffering either by death, or in life, by waking up to the nature of our situation and not clinging and grasping, screaming and being angry, resentful, irritable or insulted by our existence.”—Allen Ginsberg, “Negative Capability: Kerouac’s Buddhist Ethic” (via happinessandfruit)
“Let mystery have its place in you; do not be always turning up your whole soil with the plowshare of self–examination, but leave a little fallow corner in your heart ready for any seed the winds may bring, and reserve a nook of shadow for the passing bird; keep a place in your heart for the unexpected guests, an altar for the unknown God. Then if a bird sings among your branches, do not be too eager to tame it. If you are conscious of something new – thought or feeling, wakening in the depths of your being – do not be in a hurry to let in light upon it, to look at it; let the springing germ have the protection of being forgotten, hedge it round with quiet, and do not break in upon its darkness; let it take shape and grow, and not a word of your happiness to any one! Sacred work of nature as it is, all conception should be enwrapped by the triple veil of modesty, silence and night.”—
“Not being tense but ready.
Not thinking but not dreaming.
Not being set but flexible.
Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement. It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.”—
“Zen masters use the word satori to describe a flash of insight, a moment of no-mind and total presence. Although satori is not a lasting transformation, be grateful when it comes, for it gives you a taste of enlightenment.”—Eckhart Tolle (via thecalminside)
