Actually a bird looking on in detachment is quite funny heh. I can see it's deep meditative glance lol. I added the detachment as I don't usually do cos I saw a vid with the verses on and it says that but prolly put better and more poetic...It's a nice verse if you haven't::Upanishad Two Birds in a Tree, The Individual Self and Divine Self https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3YM3_heQzo

I like happiness as much as the next guy, but its not happiness that sends one in search for truth. It's rabid, feverish, clawing madness to stop being a lie, regardless of price, come heaven or hell. This isn't about higher consciousness or self discovery or heaven on earth. This is about blood caked swords and Buddha's rotting head and self-immolation, and anyone who says otherwise is selling something they don't have. - Jed McKenna.

Quite. The sores don't sell.

If anyone hurts you and you forgive him, you are leading yourself to the kingdom of God.
If anyone is quarrelsome and you give understanding, you are taking yourself to the kingdom of God.
If someone is suffering and you reach out with aid and compassion, you are moving into the presence of God.

-Paramahansa Yogananda

"A true mind can weather all lies and illusions without being lost.
A true heart can touch the poison of hatred without being harmed.
Since the beginnings of time, darkness thrives in the void,
but will always yield to purified light." - Lion Turtle

The deepest feeling of a compassion that does not seek to alter anything,
paradoxically, alters everything.

And meanwhile, circumstance (= holographic energy-reflection of your consciousness)
is taking its queue from you all the time.
Itís taking its queue from you,
so if you donít change, it is not going to change either

Love the quotes Miss Hepburn , :)

Miss Hepburn 13-04-2015 09:35 PM

Ok, here's more, Ascension. :smile:

Manifestation is the showroom of your unconscious mind.
Physical manifestation is a direct reflection of who you are.

Physical reality is you meeting with yourself all the time.

-Bentinho Massaro...on youtubes


Hahaha, he makes me laugh.
