no Tublr for over 2 weeks means MONTHS to catch up. Moving in to a new apartment next month. Finishing Eckhart Tolle’s: A New Earth, today. Life changing. Daughter is good. Life is getting better. Still gotta work on the relationship though. Happy Easter everyone. A fine celebration of breaking out of the cycle.
Become totally empty
Quiet the restlessness of the mind
Only then will you witness everything
~~ unfolding from emptiness
See all things flourish and dance
~~ in endless variation
And once again merge back into perfect emptiness—
~~ Their true repose
~~ Their true nature
Emerging, flourishing, dissolving back again
~~ This is the eternal process of return
To know this process brings enlightenment
To miss this process brings disaster
—Tao Te Ching, Verse 16
I just finished A Separate Reality by Carlo Castaneda the other day. I really enjoyed this book over the first. Less scientific, more spiritual. Now I’m reading Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth. More enlightening than probably anything I’ve ever read. I’m almost half way done and its only been a day of reading. NOW I just have to put it to practice.
It’s been awhile. I severely hurt someone very close to me. I can feel the pain that I’ve caused and it is a horrible feeling. I hope my soul will grow from this. I must be compassionate from here on out, regardless of the consequences of past actions. I’ve been reading Eckhart Tolle (finally! I’ve had the book for ages) and its clearing my head a little and helping me see what I’ve done from a different perspective other than my own ego. NOW is the time for change.
