Difference between Natural & Artificial Calendar Systems: One Enlightens; the Latter Enslaves
  1. “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for.” -William Shedd
  2. “You cannot transcend what you do not know. To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself.” -Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Nisargadatta Maharaj: “There is nothing to practice. To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that. Just be. Let your true nature emerge. Don’t disturb your mind with seeking.”

You are the master alchemist.

You light the fire of love in earth and sky in heart and soul of every being.

Through your love existence and nonexistence merge.  All opposites unite.

Dali’s “Birth of the New Man” A sculpture from the Mouseion Collection. The motif is in the center of the painting “Geopolitical Child Watches the Birth of the New Man”. To them belongs the table-size sculpture “The Birth of the New Man”. The egg-sculp…ture is the central point of the painting „Enfant géopolitique observant la naissance de l’homme nouveau” from 1943. The painting is in the collection of the Dali Museum in Spain. The sculpture says: the new man has to free himself from the past. This is depicted by the image of a birth from an egg. With curiosity, the child watches, being protected by his mother, the birth of a man from a plastic egg. On this globe, which has been turned into an egg, the continents recede. Here comes into being the symbol of the new order, a new beginning of a perfect world. The longing of all men comes to be expressed in this noble sculpture. http://seductivepresence.com/blog/?p=787

Here’s to the crazy ones.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
