How to Live If You're Going to Die, by Blanche Hartman

FaceBook  On Mar 30, 2019 Mark David Vinzens wrote:
The real question is not whether life exists after death. The real question is whether you are alive before death.True immortality is found in the heart of the Eternal Now.If we forget the past and the future and give ourselves completely to the moment, then only joy and love remain.Everything becomes the celebration of life, even death.In a sense, death is the fulfillment of life, the essence and the blossoming of life.

Pablo Neruda is not just a man who wrote poetry. He is the song of the world soul.
 

What I Learned From Trees, by Herman Hesse

The tree is a symbol of the unity of heaven and earth. They are rooted in the earth and they are trying to reach to the sun and the stars.The metaphysical meaning of the Tree of Life is that we are the Children of the Universe. Everything isinter-connected.
 

The Shambhala Warrior, by Joanna Macy

FaceBook  On Mar 30, 2019 Mark David Vinzens wrote:
“When human beings lose their connection to nature, to heaven and earth, then they do not know how to nurture their environment or how to rule their world - which is saying the same thing. Human beings destroy their ecology at the same time that they destroy each other. From that perspective, healing our society goes hand in hand with healing our personal, elemental connection with the phenomenal world.”
