Fishing…

Every day is a new day.

It is better to be lucky…

but I would rather be exact.

Then when luck comes

you are ready…

with me…

 

 

SRI_6777-1

 

 

My big fish must be

somewhere…

 

 

 

 

SRI_7552-2

 

 

 

As wave is driven by 

each wave…

 

 

SRI_7516-2

 

 

The world breaks everyone..

and afterward…

 

 

 

SRI_7070-1

 

 

some are strong at

the broken place…

 

 

 

SRI_7117-1

 

 

 

But man is not made

of defeat …

 

 

 

SRI_7551-2

 

 

a man can be destroyed..

but not

defeated…

Men go fishing all their 

lives..

without realizing,

Older wisdom…

 

Since we are the youngest children of creation,
our accumulated wisdom is young, too, and so I 
search outside of the tiny and fragile box of 
humankind’s insight and understanding for the
older wisdom, the more ancient and enduring
healing.

               …I have documented the rich insights and mercies
brought to my life by my animal kin…I write about


the empowerment of meaningful and healing
relationships.
Many of mine are with animals and nature.

Enduring & Real…

To look for a form or search 

for a 

sound

is to stumble down the

wrong path .

The wisdom that cannot be thought,

alone reveals that which

is enduring and

real…

 

   ~ ` ~   Zen

 

 

 

_RAM_6981-L


Breathe in…

 

 

Breathe in with the deep awareness that you are a 

human being.

Then breathe out and touch the earth,

a non-man element, as your mother.

Visualize the streams of water beneath the Earth’s

surface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SRI_6386-L

 

 

See the minerals .See our Mother Earth, the Mother of

us all.

Then bring your arms up and breathe in again, touching the

trees, flowers, fruits, birds, squirrels, air and sky– the

non-elements.

 

 

JAN_5146-L

 

 

When your head is touching the air, the sun, the moon,

the galaxies, the cosmos–non-man elements that have

come together in order to make man possible–you see

that all of the elements are coming into you to make your

being possible.

 

 

 

SRI_6397-L

 

 

Breathing in again, stretch your arms and be aware that you also penetrate other 

elements.

 

 

 

 

JAN_5142-L

 

 

Man helps make the other elements possible.

 

( Words : Thich Nhat Hanh  )

 


Who Am I …?

I am That  I am..

I am that which I have created myself to be.

                             ~ ` ~ The Gita

 

 

 

 

JAN_3303

 

 

I am the answer you were not

expecting…

I exist 

As I am.

That is enough.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of

all

wisdom.

       ~ ` ~ Aristotle

 

 

 

SRI_3671-1

 

 

 

Many have an Image of me.

Few get the

picture…

 

 

 

JAN_4457-1

 

 

I regret opening up to 

some people.

They didn’t deserve to 

know me like that.

    ~ ` ~ Gold-Kushkloudz

 

 

_RAM7086-1

 

 

Wondering on 

myself,

by myself,

for myself…

 

 

 

JAN_2451-1

 

 

 

 

I am a thinker

Not a talker…

Shy…

 

 

 

JAN_3524

 

 

 

Never have I dealt with 

anything more

difficult than my

own soul…

 

 

 

SRI_3177-1

 

 

 

You don’t know me…

I put back my pieces,

differently.

Sharing…

Sharing your blissfulness is the only charity.

 

Sharing your joy is the only gratitude.

 

Existence has given you too much, share it.

 

 

 

 

 

The more you share the more you will have it

 

The less you share the less you will have it.

If you don’t share it you won’t have it at all.

 

 

~~Osho

 

 


Not the flower but the Fragrance…

 

You ask me ,

 

” can you tell us what is the purpose of creation ? ”

 

 

 

 

The world has never been created.

 

It has always been here ,

 

it is eternal.

 

 

 

There is no creator of the world :

 

God is not the creator of the world …

 

 

 

 

god is the

very creative energy of existence —

 

creativity rather than a creator.

 

 

 

He is not the poet but

 

 

the poetry…

 

 

 

Not the dancer

 

but the dance….

 

 

 

 

not the flower but

 

the fragrance…
