" It still amazes me sometimes the depth of the beauty that we can extract from nature."


I can totally relate to that. Time seems to stand still for me during sunsets, that time between night and day..twilight..or the calm just before a typhoon(I believe you guys call them hurricanes out there). It is in those times that I can become fully PRESENT....no past no future...just hovering in the NOW of things. Maybe these kind of things are not necessarily things we extract from nature...it could be that these are things that have always been there but we are not fully PRESENT enough most of the time to take note of of them ..always getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of things...the maelstrom so to speak. Geez excuse me for the short rambling of another tree hugger. :shake:

Maybe the presence of the moment is not extracted from nature - for it is surely something that exists within ourselves... but maybe it is Nature that extracts this from us?

One of the things that I am continually amazed at is our seemingly inherent ability to - when we want to - step back and absorb so much from just a moment.

For me, these things almost always occur just when watching sunlight or shadow on leaves, listening or watching the surf, or gazing at the sky or some other natural wonder that is easily bypassed in our day to day lives.

Seeing as to how all ALL THINGS are connected maybe there is no extraction at all. It could be that at moments of inner stillness  we become more AWARE of that which has been there the whole time. Perhaps extraction is a label that could hinder Direct Perception.

I think it's quite alright to think of yourself so grandios and treat yourself. But it's just a fantasy or an illusion. But theres no harm in lying to yourself sometimes. Pretending to believe in it then believe it and then slap your face for a reality check so you don't go so far and end up screwing yourself over with insanity or jail or even lose good friends over the I AM GAWD LORD MOST HIGH COMPLEX. If you wanna play that way fine but when it comes to friends they want to be raised supremity too. Sharing that mighty throne is caring! Who wants to be left out? Their just as rare, real and beautiful as you are too.

Isnt it just to share then? Id share, I try to, but ppl are so busy to slow down, and they get offended when I suggest that they are running the life-marathon for the wrong reasons. Sometimes ppl are comfortable in their lives, because they have stopped trying to get away from the hellhole humanity has built for themselves.

Me though, I cant accept it, and I wont..its wrong that the idea of life is making ppl sick, its wrong that the way societies work makes ppl feel more alienated and turn more cruel that they have to ever be.
Its not right to pretend that everything will be fine if one shuts up and bends for it.


Sorry for the rambling..but humans miss the pretty parts of this world, because they live in their own version of it, and confuses the false part of their world for the only and real part. And thus everyone suffers. It makes me depressed and angry to think of it.

Aaaw, shucks! *blushes* Youre sweet!
But does that mean I have to be a fertility-symbol and carry around a weird stick and be dressed in a nightgown? *thinks of the tarot-card*

It's ALL up to you. Whatever makes you feel like a Queen.

I don't expect to be treated with such absolute glory and praise but I do accept it esspecaily if I drew something cool. Or play a wild electric guitar.

I usualy get this kind of praise at lest once a year with friends. Usualy that high time of life is celebrated on my birthday. Or have my own selfish celebration on halloween and ware my satanic baphomet t-shirt and run around in bars loading my self up with drinks.

"Well, that's simple - pop on in to the Ego Cafe and become the resident poet, or grouch, or senile old fart, or whatever. Treat other people like dirt, what the hell do you care? You're the only one that matters. You are so special that you must go on forever, quirks and all, because the universe needs someone with just your specific qualities, likes & dislikes. "

:cry: A person I know has been lost to this attitude. They were once an understanding and deep soul whom loved to talk about the very nature of life and death . Now... every thing trivial and they care more about money and out doing everyone.

I thought that people must choose to be whom they are by choosing what they are not as you get older, but this case is a real WTF.
