Artistic Impulse

the impulse that drives artistic expression is irrational, unconditioned, and impersonal. it is beyond the grasp of reason and its constructions, which allows it to make the being resonate at frequencies that reason is not able to reach, and thus initiate it into experiences that are beyond his comprehension.

Rest in Power, Rep. John Lewis

RIP John Lewis. Your firey sensibility to the injustices of this world compelled you to fearlessly stand up and speak as one powerful, lion-like voice for so many. You will never be forgotten.

We wish His Holiness the Dalai Lama a very long life

Even though Tibet is still not free, what a marvelous blessing that nearly every educated person in this whole world knows the tragedy of Tibet, isn’t that so? For that, we are grateful, and it has been accomplished in perhaps only 20 or 30 years.

We also wish His Holiness the Dalai Lama a very long life, so that his efforts on the…

Nelson Mandela: After I became president..

Nelson Mandela: "After I became president, I asked one day some members of my close protection to stroll with me in the city, have lunch at one of its restaurants. We sat in one of the downtown restaurants and all of us asked for some sort of food."



"After a while, the waiter brought us our requests, I noticed that there is someone…

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

When we feed our Egos, we starve our souls! The material world we live in thrives on feeding our egos and

starving our souls. That is why there is no soul in anything we do. Praying and going to temples and churches

too has become more food for the ego rather than the soul. We need to find ways to feed our souls and starve

our egos if we want our civilization to be meaningful.

One Of A Kind

Essentially written in one day in March 2013, « One Of A Kind » is an upbeat folk pop summer song about meeting someone who turns out to have special significance in one's life, and eventually becoming so close as to form a kind of unit with them.

Ultimately, it's also about how every encounter, whether apparently desirable or otherwise, actually contributes to one's growth and to finding one's place in the grand scheme of things.



Here are the lyrics…

Blissful Blossoms

Japa, Japa, Japa,... Let the wheel of the name of the God go around in the midst of all activities. All the burning of the heart will be soothed. Don't you know how many sinners have become pure and free and divine by taking refuge in the name of God

Enough is enough!

H.H. the Dalai Lama in his hands the Panchen Lama

Another deep, deep heartache. George Floyd, an unarmed innocent black man, is dead, killed by a white police officer whose duty is to “serve and protect.” Racism and bigotry in America fueled by the current administration’s constant promotion of White…

Humanity

What is happening in the US today, and in many other parts of the world, is pathetic, painful and disgusting. The inability of civilized human beings to get along in this modern age is shameful. The burden for this lies heavily on the White race and, to a lesser degree on the people of color.

As long as the Whites refuse to acknowledge and atone for the historic plunder and pillage of the rest of the world the wounds will fester. The foundation for the affluence today is built on the…

Answers & Beyond

Question: I feel mind is like a monkey which wavers, making concentration difficult during prayers or chanting. How do I overcome this?

 Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji:

 

The elephant cannot keep its trunk stationary. It keeps swaying it always. In order to arrest its movement, the mahout gives it a huge chain to hold on to. Similarly, in order for the mind to concentrate, we have it focus on the divine Name and Form of the Lord. That is the basic…

“An Open Letter to the President”

“An Open Letter to the President”

From Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee:

Dear Fucking Lunatic,



At your recent press conference – more a word salad that had a stroke and fell down stairs, you were CLEARLY so out of your depth you needed scuba gear. Within minutes of going off air your minions were backpedaling faster than…

Leap

tell me i did not dive in way too deep

and that i will find the relief i seek

when bells toll the time to jump off the peak

say that there will be faith to take the leap

although i've walked the path of oracles

and seen you've kept the oath you'd said you'd keep

when the fruits will be close enough to reap

will i really believe in miracles

did your plan really include that last turn

or did i miss a lesson on the road

will there some day…

My favorite place to stand

Have I lived enough?

Have I loved enough?

Have I considered Right Action enough, have I come to any conclusion?

Have I experienced happiness with sufficient gratitude?

Have I endured loneliness with grace?

I say this, or perhaps I'm just thinking it.

Actually I probably think too much.

Then I step…

Mary Catherine Bateson writes: Lynn [Margulis] submitted her paper to 15 different journals in 1966 before it was published, by the Journal of Theoretical Biology. It was turned down for going against the prevailing assumption, which came out of Darwin’s writings, that evolution depends on conflict and…
