“While washing the dishes one should only be washing the dishes. If while washing dishes, we think only of the cup of tea that awaits us, this hurrying to get the dishes out of the way as if they were a nuisance, then we are not alive during the time we are washing dishes.

The fact that we are here washing these bowls is a wondrous reality, a miracle of life.

If we can’t wash the dishes, the chances are we won’t be able to drink our tea either. While drinking the cup of tea, we willl only be thinking of other things, barely aware of the cup in our hands.

Thus we are sucked away into the future – and we are incapable of living one minute of life.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“Two opposing truths can exist simultaneously in the same space. Do not therefore assume that That Which Opposes You is That Which Is Not Good For You. It may be just the reverse.” Neale Donald Walsh There’s an amazing thing that happens when belief systems, perspectives and narratives dictated by groupthink or partisan agendas are expressed freely. It’s called […]

We are the real power. It may have been sucked out of us, and we probably don’t believe it. This is the transformation of our species. “Every philosophy and every psychological system has been based upon inadequate knowledge of certain aspects of existence, upon a partial insight. We need greater experience, a multidimensional metaphysics. Now, […]
