TRIUMPH OF SPIRIT IN LOVE, NATURE & ART

Moonset

 RSCN2903_edited-2

The hush

of  predawn

in which

the moon

silently

surreptitiously

descends

into the black hole

of the tail end

of night

*

A similar moment

years ago

 in my arms

as she struggled to breathe

already half the battle

over

 one prick of the needle

 instantly limp

a hushed end

to a soulmate

our baby

*

Why can’t we

too

go this way

as softly as

a moon setting

in the whisper

of predawn

of a new day?


“Awareness of Awareness”

My friend, Tiramit, over at DhammaFootsteps.com sent me a reference to the wonderful video on awareness…

To see it, CLICK ON Inner Medium.com.

Don’t be fooled by the cartoon nature at the introductory beginning of the video.  All kinds of experts on consciousness are interviewed, from academics to a homeless man, from a Self-Realization monk to a race car driver, from a scientist to a business man and from a guru to artists and a  psychic.  All speak on thinking, Awareness and consciousness. It ends with Sri Mooji, whose retreat in London I am attending online for the next 5 days.  This video is a perfect segue into the Self-Inquiry process Mooji teaches.

Meantime, till next post, enjoy the beautiful Fall!

Temporarily out of commission, sorry to miss your posts, I offer you beautiful Madhuri Dixit dancing for the equally beautiful Shahrukh Khan, a visual fantasia…

P.S. Disregard any note you may get about video not being available for public, just click on link.


Mystical Vibrations

DSCN2953_edited-1

 

The reverberations of love

Jump across time and space

To another receptive heart

The reverberations of suffering

Resound around the earth

Picked up by open souls in prayer

The reverberations of aum

Most sacred of sounds

Pulse through our minds in meditation

Love brings the possibility of loss

Suffering brings a totality of pain

Aum brings the reality of God within

 


THANK YOU!!

Going to take 5 days off in the country to regroup and hopefully return to health and to celebrate my husband’s birthday.  Will try to read posts but may not have adequate reception.

Meantime to thank all of you I leave you in good company with good thoughts…


Life vs. Death, Living vs. Existing

 

I know the importance of mental health screening first hand, as a person who is Bipolar, with Asperger’s, OCD and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.  Therapy works.  So does the right combination of medications.  It is the difference between life and death.  It is the difference between just existing and living a productive life with loving relationships.  If you are having difficulties coping, feel you cannot go on as you are, are depressed or have any number of emotional problems, get screened.  Get help. You cannot do it alone.  I know.  I tried.  This may be the single most important decision of your life. And if you are interested you can read about the story of my battle against mental illness.

Do Lions Feel?

This video should put to rest any doubt that  all animals are sentient beings.  I feel badly that this lion is trapped in a zoo but at least he was saved from death.  Obviously never forgot his saviour.
