Apparition Irreelle de la Muse (Unreal appearance of the Muse) // Wojtek Siudmak
a dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. a man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.

Why is it taking so long to believe that if we hurt Nature, we hurt ourselves?

The good vibe
The Buddha was and is a brilliant teacher. He taught by his presence, as example; always a good method. (“ Don’t do as I say, be as I am.”) His teachings can be typified as nonauthoritarian (noncoercive), empirical (see for yourself), real-time (present-moment), and pragmatic (practical), as well as supremely compassionate and wise.

Be the silent watcher of your thoughts and behavior. You are beneath the thinker. You are the stillness beneath the mental noise. You are the love and joy beneath the pain.
|—||Eckhart Tolle (via yogachocolatelove)|
If you are too certain, you will not hear when the universe speaks to you. If you are too uncertain, you will not trust what you hear. But if you are open yet grounded, then you may learn and grow by the hand of the divine itself, which is none other than Life.
A novel idea.
