"this is the internet, i can say whatever i want" is a super creepy and obvious way to say "when there are no obvious consequences for my actions i lack all empathy"

"The Supreme Truth exists outside and inside of all living beings, the moving and the nonmoving. Because He is subtle, He is beyond the power of the material senses to see or to know. Although far, far away, He is also near to all.

Although the Supersoul appears to be divided among all beings, He is never divided. He is situated as one. Although He is the maintainer of every living entity, it is to be understood that He devours and develops all.

He is the source of light in all luminous objects. He is beyond the darkness of matter and is unmanifested. He is knowledge, He is the object of knowledge, and He is the goal of knowledge. He is situated in everyone’s heart.”

- Bhagavad Gita 13:16-18

do not pity the dead, harry, pity the living, and above all those who think feminism means hating men.

ive never seen one vegan commercial on tv :/


It would be revolutionary if FRUIT and VEGETABLES and organic produce and gardening advice and vegan info were tv advertisements - if the entire approach to the humans of this worlds general health was changed. We would become such a beautiful, compassionate world.

“Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.”

“It is a matter of embarrassment for our Western society that traditions of other cultures have often been looked down upon with condescension as the curious behavioural oddities of underdeveloped people who should learn something from us — rather than we from them.”

After hiking for twelve hours out of a nineteen hour trek, it was time to watch the sunrise at Dinosaur Ridge. When we first looked out, the mountains were completely covered by clouds, but within an hour the clouds dropped and this was what we saw. It felt like heaven, and you could hear everyone present for this moment screaming and shouting for joy! I’d never seen something so incredible, I had to meditate and have gratitude to have experienced this. Some locals said that they’d never seen the mountains like this, even in their 40+ years of hiking there. (© Ka Ram Shim/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest)

Can you please explain the indifference quote by Elie Wiesel?


To repost: 

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”

The things we take to be opposites are actually false dichotomies. 

Hate does not oppose love. It is the ways in which our love is limited that hate is then kindled. If we love something and that love is limited then we may end up hating something as a result. Hate is the fire of love when it ceases to see clearly. 

Ugliness is not the opposite of art or even beauty. The mark of true beauty is that it knows no opposite. Cut it and it bleeds honesty. It is fearless in its innocence. Ugliness is only possible where there is confusion, judgment, and misidentification. If it can be said that art has any purpose, it is to restore clarity through the language that transforms communication into communion. 

Faith is not about rules and regulations. It is about the heart’s rawness. One person may find faith in a certain symbolic perspective on this experience of being an individual in a universe. Another may find another symbolic perspective to be similarly moving. But the unspeakable and unknowable beingness is out of reach by all perspectives. And yet it disagrees with none of them. 

Sooner or later we will all have to outgrow our perspectives. The Truth in the end, in the beginning, and now, knows no opposite. There is no such thing as sin or heresy. 

Life and death are just processes given names rooted in a linear context. If one were to momentarily suspend the identification with an individual, it becomes apparent that all is just an interdependent unfolding. Birth is formation. Death is transformation. And from transformation arises formation. 

It never ends because it never began, not unlike the way a dream never begins. 

All of this is naked to the heart’s eye. But it is indifference that closes the eye. It is indifference that tells us lies. Indifference makes us think we are safe, that death and all the bad things are far away, and that all that matters are the Good Things(). 

Indifference is how the news can desensitize us while telling us what to think and how to react. It is how random fucking billboards can sell us on shit we never needed to care about. And its how we feel when we look at “strangers”. It is how it is possible to order drone strikes from behind a desk half a world away. 

We can learn from our mistakes of hate and ugliness and death. But we cannot learn from something to which we willingly blind ourselves. 

Do not confuse indifference with unattachment. To be unattached means to allow things to fall apart and come together. To be indifferent means to trade aliveness for Life(). 

Namaste :)
