Colchicums (Autumn Crocus)

Colchicums (Autumn Crocus)

Well, it’s been a long dry spell this summer. The ground is as hard as cement, and only a few things are blooming. The colchicums don’t seem to mind at all, nor do the sedums.

The quote of the week:

“If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”

— Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein

  • You, too, can have a free meditation timer from zencast.org. They also have one for iPhones. Basically a starting sound, a sound in the middle and one at the end, with silence in the middle. Now you don’t have to estimate how long you’ve been meditating.
  • A proverb for every situation.
  • Casa Batllo in Barcelona, Spain. (Note to self… need to go to Barcelona)
  • Twitter hashtags that didn’t make the cut.

    Love the picture! I remember September dirt in VA. Now a question – if in meditation I seek timelessness, why do I need a meditation timer? Was your tongue in your cheek while typing?

    All I can tell you is that it’s really annoying to be experiencing eternal timelessness (or whatever) and smell the rice burning 😉

    Y’ know, that makes sense. And Sandy tells me that learning to meditate, to really think of nothing, to master your thoughts, has to be done in small steps. So I stand corrected! Besides, as I recall from an especially enjoyable theology class, time exists within timelessness, not the opposite.
