My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
No, we are the ones who project ourselves and our emotions on to--whatever happens to be convenient at the time!I loved this one! :)Melinda
so true, we have the power to determine how we deal with the things outside of all our control!
I think it's called anthropomorphizing. We humans have a tendency to do that.
I was just writing about anthropomorphism yesterday...it's so prevalent in our day-to-day. What these natural elements connote is contingent on our frame of mind at the time, I suppose...so this being said, I am looking at a very kind and benevolent wind tickling the trees across the street :)
It's all good.
It's all about being proactive.
The bareness of wind and rain are so refreshing without the superimposition of all our mind-stuff. This aphorism wakes me up to the difference between is-ness and the mind-made world masquerading as reality. Thank you!n.p. the incisive cut-to-the-chase boldness of your words has lit up some energy in me, and I'd like to share a few sentences inspired by your aphorisms.This moment holds everything I want.Stepping off the treadmill of futile activity is a radical act.The root addiction is the addiction to me.Thank you n.p. for your invigorating blogs.
Yep, it's all perception.
No they're not angry, but often they sound it during a hurricane.
I love this!
yet their indifference at times makes me melancholy.
@Colleen: Those are great, and set me thinking, too. I'm so glad we can ignite this flame in each other. That's what writing should do.
Thank you n.p.
Yes, wind selflessly touch everybody. Rain just give, never complain anything.We ought to learn from the wind and rain.
All seround us is only a symbol..as life is a symbolic too:)
Universe is perfect.Imperfection lies in our judgement...Thanks for sharing.God bless.
Nature is a process of events quite indifferent to us. We respond to its beauty and force emotionally. but we must beware of ascribing human emotions to it, it has none.
So, be like the wind and stay like the rain!
Life is purely how you perceive it. So you might as well perceive it purely.
The wind and rain are both deliberate and exciting! Marty, you rocked this new site, I can see it! =) It's good to see you're on a roll every single day. Hehe.
oh...never never.. :)
The wind is never angry,The rain is never sad,The sun never smiles,On what this land had,Except when the moon sails,Clothed in day dreams,The queen of the night sings,'Nothing is as it seems'.
