This is a place where I can share my thoughts about my favorite music, TV shows, movies and books. It's also, hopefully, a safe harbor to showcase my spirituality, writing and poetry. Welcome!
“If religion were true, its followers would not try to bludgeon their young into an artificial conformity; but would merely insist on their unbending quest for truth, irrespective of artificial backgrounds or practical consequences.”
H.P. Lovecraft (via lazyyogi)
“Do not be afraid of your difficulties. Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.”
HP Blavatsky (via lazyyogi)
“Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created.”
Yoko Ono, 1977 (via slychedelic)
“What is commonly called ‘falling in love’ is in most cases an intensification of egoistic wanting and needing. You become addicted to another person, or rather to your image of that person. It has nothing to do with true love, which contains no wanting whatsoever.”
Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)
Sinkhole in Chicago neighborhood swallowed three cars this morning. As usual, this one was caused by a water main break. The water eroded the soil and rock under the road, creating a void and ultimate collapse. We’ll hear a lot more of these incidences in the coming years. America’s infrastructure is in rough shape, and water, sewer, and gas lines average close to 50 years old. Replacements costs are extremely high - most cities wait for a break to happen before replacing pipes, which is more expensive and dangerous over time. But, cities around the country are deferring maintenance due to a dwindling tax base. Via NBC.
This is where I live - it was quite a bad day in Chicago! Record storms and flooding.
“Through inquiry, we discover how prior to the story there is peace. Then a thought enters, we believe it, and the peace seems to disappear.”
The Work of Byron Katie (via unconditionedconsciousness)
