Darling I Love You


by Richard Welker

In the dark of the early morning,
I hear the sound of heavy men with dogs,
drones, devices and shame,
hunting fallen angels in the swamp.

My chest is heavy, hard to breathe,
pounding panic overtakes me.
Is it thick toxic gas,
or the sound of my own breaking heart?

“What is wrong with me?” I cry out.
I forget this is just another form
of torment, a jailer with a baton raking
the bars of my own soul.

I remember then to say, out loud,
“Darling I love you,
Darling I accept you.
Darling I thank you
Darling I respect you.”

I know the sky is burning,
the animals dying, the trees falling.
Maybe it’s a message to hold
my neighbor’s tears in cupped hands.

There is a saying from ancient times,
“If you are planting a tree when the... show more

Le lâcher-prise

  • Ce n'est pas se montrer indifférent, mais admettre que l'on ne peut agir à la place de quelqu'un d'autre.
  • Ce n'est pas couper les liens, mais prendre conscience que l'on ne peut contrôler autrui.
  • Ce n'est pas être passif, mais au contraire, tirer une leçon des conséquences inhérentes à un évènement.
  • C'est reconnaître son impuissance, c'est-à-dire que le résultat final n'est pas dans nos mains.
  • Ce n'est pas blâmé ou vouloir changer autrui, mais donner le meilleur de soi-même.
  • Ce n'est pas prendre soin des autres, mais se sentir concerné par eux.
  • Ce n'est pas assisté, mais encourager.
  • Ce n'est pas juger, mais accorder à autrui le droit d'être humain.
  • Ce n'est pas s'occuper de tout ce qui arrive, mais laisser les autres gérer leur propre destin.
  • Ce n'est pas materner les autres, mais leur

On the Siona people, whose existence is threatened by UK-based oil company


Again, this third article is part of a trilogy; this time, on the Siona people, whose lives, as aforementioned in the headline, is threatened by private companies who are searching for oil, and who'll, as soon as oil could be explored beneath the top ground, will not hesitate to remove their community to soak it up. Tell me again how responsible the Free Market acts when it comes to individual rights and environmental protection, I will sit here and listen.
But Buenavista is effectively in the way. Amerisur’s concession, Putumayo-12, extends for more than 54,000 hectares (133,000 acres). It entirely overlaps Buenavista’s roughly 4,500-hectare reserve as well as approximately half a 52,000-hectare area into which the Siona are trying to expand the reserve under a government land restitution programme.
Going by the information presented in the consultation, it appears four of the seismic lines would cross the north of the reserve, while another five would go

Nocturne


According to yoga and other schools of classical Indian philosophy there are 4 main states of consciousness: wakefulness, dream, sleep, and turiiya- total union with the Atman. Wakefulness is where the sensory-intellectual mind is entertained by perceptions of the physical and social world as well as our abstract thoughts about these realms. The dream state is mostly a recycling of these perceptions and memories; most impressions are discarded through jumbled dream scenarios whereas some dreams may actually be attempting to reveal aspects of one’s inner life beyond the sensory-intellectual mind. The sleeping state of consciousness is where the sensory-intellectual mind and even its activities of dream are suspended. Most people have no awareness of what happens in this state of consciousness, rather it is experienced as a state of unconsciousness. This is because most people have no practical, living awareness of any reality beyond the sensory-intellectual mind with the names and forms of the things we experience in the mundane world. It is only when medita... show more

Native inmates won lawsuit to grow their hair long due to spiritual beliefs


The trio of long-time prisoners at the McConnell Unit sued the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in federal court, arguing that their Native American spiritual beliefs regard hair as an extension of the soul, something to be cut only when in mourning. The prison system’s rules requiring men to keep short hair or face disciplinary consequences, the inmates and their attorneys argued, were an unfair violation of religious freedom.

Even though female prisoners are allowed to have long hair, attorneys for the state claimed that letting men do the same would cost too much money to police, that prisoners would get too hot in uncooled facilities, that it would make identifying inmates harder and that it could increase the number of inmate suicides.

I don't get the last argument. Do they beleive that they could use their hair as a noose, to strangle themselves to death? Or how do they explain this argument?

Simran Practice, the Repetition of a Name or Names of God -- Mystic Poetry of Sant Dadu Dayal of Rajasthan

The repetition of the holy names is the truest spiritual technique. An uninterrupted inner repetition of the holy names given by the living Master has to be practiced daily with love, devotion and one-pointed attention. One thereby transcends one’s body and is transported to the realms of light.

The repetition develops into an ongoing spontaneous process, and one catches the unceasing inner Music, which takes him to its Source and reveals God face to face. One is therefore exhorted to search daily for the Source of this Unstruck Music. Whatever one does and wherever one happens to be, he is asked to be a sacrifice unto His Name and to have ardent longing to behold Him and hear his voice.

The Name functions at two levels: at a human level as the holy words granted by a true living Master, which are repeated to focus th... show more

Absolute Happiness! Where Do We Search For It?

"All living beings want happiness. Human beings also want happiness and toil to achieve it... Where is happiness? Searching for peace and happiness one goes to Saints and Sages. Saints and sages tell him: 'Brother, happiness is not to be found outside or in the things outside. So if you truly want happiness, then from turn outwards to inwards (stop searching happiness outside and search it within yourself), i.e, do the 'Bhakti' [love, devotion, spiritual practice] of the Almighty; attempt to find Him within. Real happiness lies in knowing thyself. Goswami Tulsidas Ji Maharaj says:

"'Jimi thal binu jal rahi na sakai |
Koti bhanti keu karai uupai ||
Tatha Moksha sukh sunu khagrai |
Rahi n sakai Hari bhagati bihai ||'
(As land can’t live without water,
similarly Mukti [freedom, liberation] or Moksha
can’t be without the Bhakti of God.)"

Even a "basic bitch" false understanding of God is better than no understanding of God. Which is what atheists believe. (Scientific materialists.) Atheists suffer from the Dunning-Kruger effect, falsly believing themselves to be intellectually superior even though they are spiritually retarded. Fundamentalist Christians may be wrong in some respects, but they will alwayse be less wrong than Atheists.

Atheists are so backwards that they believe their beliefs are not beliefs.

I myself don't identify as any specific religion, but I harbour spiritual theories. Feel free to comment, this is open to discussion.

A Marriage of Sense To Soul


This evening my soul poured out and into all things,
leaving this empty, lonely vessel, and was filled with an infinite, ever-flowing stream.
My soul poured out, reeling and roaring into everything.
Ceased of breath, I am; empty of form in a diaphanous blue immensity,
in the gentle frolic of the evening wind, in the warm smile of the setting sun,
condensed into flowing rivers and streams, settled into earth and stone.

Now a throb in this vessels breast animates and enlivens, pours into and through the vivacious pulses of all beings.
A marriage of sense to soul; nothing thought, sought, gained or lost.
Darkness falls on fleeting pleasures and world is shattered to bliss.

『As nothing can be nobler and more elegant than a man's face and body when he likes and respects colours, arts and languages from people he doesn't belong with, nothing can be uglier and more ridiculous than a man's head and spirit when he is in search and has respect only for what his own people has produced. The first one is a cosmopolite; he opens his door to all four winds and will grow higher for this. The latter is xenophobic; his town smells mould where no foreigner air has ever come in and he will shrink rotten. If air never comes in, Omestes won't come in either, he who is the everlasting foreigner.』
