Philosophical Fridays – Sacred Space

Colors blind the eye.
Sounds deafen the ear.
Flavors numb the taste.
Thoughts weaken the mind.
Desires wither the heart.

The Master observes the world
but trusts his inner vision.
He allows things to come and go.
His heart is open as the sky.

Tao Te Ching  Chapter 12  Translation by Stephen Mitchell

Philosophical Fridays – Rediscovering Simplicity

“This is a way of saying that our deepest spiritual, religious, and psychological problems are extremely simple.
Just go out and look at the sky.
Get to know where you are.
Heaven is there for all to see.”
~ Alan W. Watts
