To see the things



in the present moment 

is to see all that is now,

all that has been since time began, 

and all that shall be unto the world's end;

for all things are of 

one kind and one form



The author of the above words the Roman emperor and philosopher Marcus Aurelius was killed by a mosquito.

    1. He is indeed. You might like to check out a new link: The Thunderbolts Project. Fascinating stuff.

    1. My plume app says the air is moderate today. I think moderate is the new norm. Fresh air is what we have rarely.

  3. I wonder where you find everything, Gwil! As I have said before, there is no telling what will come up on this blog and that makes it all the more worth reading. I hope you are out on your trail now, enjoying the awakening life . The above quote is a bit surprising considdering the emperors rather superior outlook on their citizens, especially those with lower rank. So Aurelius might have been an exception?

    1. Here we see the womb of creation.

      I think Aurelius never forgot where he came from. That is to say out of the womb.
