My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Even by shaking and kicking, the person will forever be a mystery eh. Closed even if they say they're open books. I like this, Mart. Keep it up!
Yes, the door always must be opened from the other side... Love your new blog! :)
My favorite and very true, even though we try and try......enjoyed your thoughts
Just as you can never go full circle round Substance, so too another person. Probably related there :)
Reminds me of one of my favorite songs.
How about windows then? I have the perfect door photo for this taken yesterday. Should I share?
If commentators would like to present images or cartoons in response to the aphorisms, one possibility is for them to post a link to their image in the comment - which you could then use to update the post containing the aphorism. Or the links could simply be left in the COMMENTS for other visitors to copy into their browser address bars.Visitors will know how to upload their images to, say, flickr or whatever - for example, if they are Google Bloggers then they could follow the following steps to get the link ready for putting in a comment.(BLOGGERS ONLY) Just upload an image into the 'Picture' widget from your Dashboard and do a right mouse click on the image. Choose 'Copy Link Location' from the menu, then CANCEL the widget. At no point do you need to click SAVE. It is of course possible to SAVE the image and REMOVE it after you've visited the blog and copied the link location of the image from their (or even copied it from the Source Code option in the View menu of your browser). Here's an example.http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ABVF3bxtz88/S7QZxrNMQrI/AAAAAAAAAPs/4O7eMyc8FOI/s1600/KeithRichards.jpg
You've got that right! Sometimes the people we think we know the best are the most resistant!
Marty- did you know that I don't know what "aphorism" even means?? :DMarty- I think that people are open doors that we always enter! :)
I like your new blog. And yes another's mind is a formidable fortress opaque to the world. But the words they speak perhaps are windows to their soul?
That's so true. I think this is why I write: to knock on those doors, maybe to try and open them. All the best!
Any idea of 'closed' is an illusion. Beyond the apparent i.e that which the physical senses and the conditioned mind perceives, there is a seamless, infinite ground of beingness where no doors exist, 'closed' or 'open'."I kept knocking on god's door and when finally he opened, I found that I was knocking from the inside". Hafiz
It reminds of a Metallica's song lyrics: The Unforgiven II "The door is locked nowbut it's open if you're true.If you can understand the Me,then I can understand the You"
Maybe... but we should keep knocking! :-)
Knock, knock, Whose there?Another person,Another person who?Can...knock, knock.
