Oh Dear

 “Everything is determined, every beginning and ending, by forces over which we have no control. It is determined for the insect, as well as for the star. Human beings, vegetables, or cosmic dust, we all dance to a mysterious tune, intoned in the distance by an invisible piper.” — Albert Einstein

I don’t know what to say to this.

A Word From Our Sponsors

There are those men and women whom we turn to always, to rediscover their ideas and words and wisdom. Those people who encourage us to recommit ourselves to our path in life. Those folks who make us say, “Ah, yes, of course!” The ones to whom we say, “Thank you, I needed to hear that.” So I think of them for our purposes here as our Sponsors. They do sponsor us, save us from the world of needs and wants. Here’s two of them.

“Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born.”
~ Nikola Tesla

“Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.”
~ Albert Einstein

“We are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them. To know each other, we must reach beyond the sphere of our sense perceptions.”
~ Nikola Tesla

“When something vibrates, the electrons of the entire universe resonate with it. Everything is connected. The greatest tragedy of human existence is the illusion of separateness.”
~ Albert Einstein

“Instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.”
~ Nikola Tesla

“The intellect has little to do on the road to discovery. There comes a leap in consciousness, call it intuition or what you will, the solution comes to you and you don’t know how or why.
I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me.”
~ Albert Einstein

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
Our senses enable us to perceive only a minute portion of the outside world.”
~ Nikola Tesla

“One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike. We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us. It is entirely possible that behind the perception of our senses, worlds are hidden of which we are unaware.”
~ Albert Einstein

“Most certainly, some planets are not inhabited, but others are, and among these there must exist life under all conditions and phases of development.”
~ Nikola Tesla

“Given the millions of billions of earth-like planets, life elsewhere in the universe without a doubt does exist. In the vastness of the universe we are not alone.”
~ Albert Einstein

Uncle Albert

“I am happy because I want nothing from anyone. I do not care about money. Decorations, titles or distinctions mean nothing to me. I do not crave praise. I claim credit for nothing. A happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too much on the future.”~ Albert Einstein

Once again, the Greats have the same thoughts on Life and what is important. To live simply seems always the wisdom of not just a good life, but a fine life. And one of non-attachment as the Buddha imparts. Without want, or greed, life is easy. And we do not need to suffer.

Deep Breaths And Thoughts

Scientists say because there are fewer cars and planes polluting the air -at long last Mother Earth is able to take a deep breath.

Sleeping In The Forest
I thought the earth remembered me, she
took me back so tenderly, arranging
her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds. I slept
as never before, a stone
on the riverbed, nothing
between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated
light as moths among the branches
of the perfect trees. All night
I heard the small kingdoms breathing
around me, the insects, and the birds
who do their work in the darkness. All night
I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling
with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.

– Mary Oliver
