Be all that you can be my son
without fear"

Gary Zukav...


"We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives."

Gary Zukav

On real satisfaction...


“A person functioning exclusively in the Cartesian mode may be free from manifest symptoms but cannot be considered mentally healthy. Such individuals typically lead ego-centred, competitive, goal-oriented lives. Overpreoccupied with their past and their future, they tend to have a limited awarenessof the present and thus a limited ability to derive satisfaction from ordinary activities in everyday life. They concentrate on manipulating the external world and measure their living standard by the quantity of material possessions, while they become ever more alienated from their inner world and unable to appreciate the process of life. For people whose existence is dominated by this mode of experience no level of wealth, power, or fame will bring genuine satisfaction”

Dr Fritjof Capra*

Lakota Wisdom


"Everything was possessed of personality, only differing from us in form. Knowledge was inherent in all things. The world was a library and its books were the stones, leaves, grass, brooks, and the birds and animals that shared, alike with us, the storms and blessings of earth. We learned to do what only the student of nature learns, and that was to feel beauty. We never railed at the storms, the furious winds, and the biting frosts and snows. To do so intensified human futility, so whatever came we adjusted ourselves, by more effort and energy if necessary, but without complaint."


Luther Standing Bear, (Ota Kte) was an Oglala Lakota Chief, a Native American Author, Historian, teacher and philosopher born in 1868.

Nature of the Universe...


"A page from a journal of modern experimental physics will be as mysterious 
to the uninitiated as a Tibetan mandala. Both are records of enquiries into
the nature of the universe".

Philosophy of tolerance...


"One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him."

Socrates

The Field...

there is a field. I'll meet you there."

THE YOUNG WARRIOR


With a Spirit so strong, magic he sought
Power and mastery over all he was taught
An endless restless quest seeking about
In every book and tale, within and without.

The Master looked on, hidden from view
For of life’s matters he had seen and he knew
The universe spoke yet his quest never ceased

For it could not…
the eager young sapling that yearned to be a tree
Was overrun by the force and the will to be free.
Then, in the flash of a moment a rainbow appeared
In stillness he saw clearly all that he loved and feared
Was a magical intricate play, a magician's illusion
Conceived in a most perfect web of delusion

He had came home, and his home was his heart
And it is there that ego and soul eventually part.


 Somwang: Book of Poems 2
