Care about…

On GLOBAL TIGER DAY…

 
No one will protect what they don’t

 
care about ; & no one will care about

 
what they have never experienced.

 
                             ~ ` ~  David Attenborough

He & I

When words run dry,

     he does not try,

   nor do I.

 

 We are on par .

He just is.

   I just am

   & we just are.

Burst forth…

 

There is something fierce &

terrible in me,

eligible to burst forth.

I dare not tell it in

words.

Yoga…

What does it take to actually be a

yogi, really?

Not spiritual attainment or Asana performance,

but the beautiful embrace of your

own reality.

Soul…

by vibes…

not by 

appearances…

I Exist…

 

  I exist as I am, that is enough,


if no other in the world be aware,
I sit content,


and if each and all be aware,


I sit content.

Fade away…?

 

Life, it seems, will fade away

Drifting further every day

Getting lost within myself

Nothing matters, no one else…

 

No one but me can save myself, but it’s too late

Now I can’t think, think why I should even try…

 

    (~ ` ~ Metallica—fade to black)

Unbecoming everything…

 May be

The journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.

Maybe it’s unbecoming everything

that isn’t you

….so that you can

be who you were meant 

to be

in the first place…

To Love…

  To love is to suffer.
         to avoid suffering one must not love.
                 But then one suffers from not loving.
               Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer;
                                                                     to suffer is to suffer…
                                              ~ ` ~ Woody Allen

Courage…

  It’s a love 

              affair 

                        with 

                the unknown

                                                       ~ ` ~ Osho

Chief…

 

The torn boughs trailing

O’er the tusks…aslant

The saplings reeling in the path

He trod,

Declares his might- our lord

The Elephant

Chief of the ways of

God…

~ ` ~ Tom Alter

Faithful…

 

 

I meant what I said,
and I said what I meant.
An elephant is faithful,
one hundred percent.

                                                       ~ ` ~ Dr Seuss

New course…

   

 

We lead our lives like water flowing

              down the hill,
    going more or less in one direction
        until we splash into something
           that forces us to find a
new course
                          ~ ` ~    Arthur Golden

Forest…

         

 

 

                        How impossible it is to walk though the forest 

 

                                        without telegraphing

 

                                 your presence…

                 When you Breathe ,

   Set Free…


…I see within your heart
of hearts
where no masks are


A spirit waiting to be set free

Journey…

 

                            The journey to understand the

                               true nature of reality requires no paper map,

                         no metal compass, and no breadcrumb

                              left by others.

 

                                       The true journey is one that is travelled

                                           with an inner GPS fully activated,

                                  and a mind as open as a parachute

                                  … perfectly capable of landing exactly

                                                                             where you’re meant to be.

Stop Looking…

   

 

                   Stop looking for happiness

 
                              in the same place you

 
                                           lost it.
                                                      ~ ` ~ Unknown

A Seeker…

 

 

I was a terrible believer in things, but I was also a terrible non- believer.

in things.

I was as searching as I was sceptical.

I didn’t know where to put my faith, or if there was such a place,

or even precisely what the faith meant ,

 in all its complexity.

Everything seemed to be possibly potent and possibly fake.

To be Found
