This morning...

... to start out my day, I watched this short excerpt of a dialogue between quantum scientists and the Dalai Lama earlier this year.

His thoughts on the illusion of our perception of separateness will definitely keep my mind and heart occupied for a while.

For those of you not interested in either the Dalai Lama or quantum physics, here are a few photos I took yesterday.

You know, sometimes I think that if I gazed into one of these beautiful flowers long enough, I would find the entire universe reflected there. Such perfection!

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein

  2. There's a saying that when the world's best scientists finally reach the top of the mountain, they will find the great spiritual teachers already sitting there waiting for them.

  3. Liebe Silke,

    ich finde ja, dass Zinien zu den kraftvollsten Blüten gehören. Nicht nur ihre Farbenvielfalt ist beeindruckend, nein auch ihre Stabilität. Mein Vater zieht jedes Jahr ein paar selbst. Im letzten Jahr durfte ich dann einige in meinen Garten setzen.

    Sonnige Grüße aus Deutschlands Norden
