Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree,
you water it and make it survive,
you haven't done a thing.

Some things are truly simple. Some things it suits our complexity to mask in over-complexity, or even deceit. This short video clip benefits from being refined, persuasive, intelligent and compelling. It's simplistic eloquence cuts through and worryingly resonates what our intuition already is aware of.

Only by going alone in silence, without baggage,
can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness.
All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.

over which they invite their students to cross;
then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse,
encouraging them to create their own.

Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules.
To apply a rule to the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly,
in cases where it fits and in cases where it does not fit, is pedantry... To apply a rule with natural ease, with judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and without ever letting the words of the rule obscure the purpose of the action or the opportunities of the situation, is mastery.
-George Polya, professor of mathematics (1887-1985)

Yesterday we obeyed kings and
bent our necks before emperors.
But today we kneel only to truth,
follow only beauty, and
obey only love.

Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil
and the ugly in us,
but our emptiness.
The hardest thing to hide is
something that is not there.

Twin Mystery. To many people artists seem /
undisciplined and lawless. /
Such laziness, with such great gifts, /
seems little short of crime. /
One mystery is how they make / the things they make so flawless; / another, what they're doing with / their energy and time.

and scientist (1905-1996)

Much of how we experience the future, specifically the coming earth changes, will rest upon how we perceive… Continue

There are moments when we reach beyond our daily affairs, hopes and concerns and unite with the very fabric of life. We may be enjoying a spectacular sunset and our awareness expands and merges into the colors of the sky itself. Or perhaps while quietly humming a sweet melody, we begin vibrating in complete harmony with our own being. Gazing into the eyes of another we witness eternity. These are the instances… Continue
