Eternal life belongs to those who live in the present

"Death is not an event in 
life: we do not live to 
experience death. If we take 
eternity to mean not 
infinite temporal duration 
but timelessness, then 
eternal life belongs to those 
who live in the present." 

~ ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein ~~

Torrent of Time

TIME IS LIKE a torrent of water rushing through our lives. Time cannot be stopped - and life cannot be separated from time until there is deep transcendence of all the cares and concerns of daily life. Few ever learn to live with abandon without attachment - at peace with the passing parade of phenomena. Yet, yet, and yet again - there's something within us that does not change. Something unchanged since our first awareness of being here in our lives. ∆

Alignment with Being

Most people live in a fog - moving between tasks, situations, and pleasures. Often in a mental fog of remembrances and fantasies. Live life fully. This could just be the only life you know. Pre-life and after-life are matters of speculation and faith. A full life is not measured in number of years, but by depth of understanding and experience. Some die young but had rich lives. Others live long but accomplish little. It's not how long we live, but how we live that counts. We become happy, wealthy and wise in proportion to our alignment with being.

What a World

WHAT A WORLD we created! So much technological progress. I see glitter at the expense of much noise and endless distraction. Teaching meditation becomes a noble calling. Some say this is the bottom of the Kali Yuga - the darkest moment of the darkest age. It’s exactly at such extreme moments that things begin to turnaround.

Professor Americ Azevedo's Last Class at UC Berkeley

The photos are blurry but I felt it was important to represent this crucial time in Americ's life.

Ancient Agora

How do we reconcile all of the events which are going on in the world right now?

Silence. Stillness. Serenity.
It isn't passive. 
It isn't selfish. 
It isn't easy.

Join us?

Send your poems, stories, artwork, articles, ramblings and anything else:

We are a community. 
We are always growing together. 
We are always listening.

A thought, thought several times!

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
— Henry David Thoreau
(Suggested by Marianne Henry)
