“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci #Quotes

Mysterious and Famous masterpiece: “Hiding in plain sight in the painting is a small and previously overlooked detail that, once spotted, transforms the scene into something more complex and controversial than the vision of a sacred creche, watched over tenderly by the Virgin Mary and the archangel Uriel. ” Full article: http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20190213-virgin-of-the-rocks-a-subversive-message-hidden-by-da-vinci

那, pronounced as nà means “that/that one”. 7 strokes; 50th most common Chinese words.
“That One, though motionless, is swifter than the mind. The senses can never overtake It,
for It ever goes before. Though immovable, It travels faster than those who run. By It the
all-pervading air sustains all living beings”~IV. The Upanishads
“The indefinite term ‘That‘ is used in Upanishads to designate the Invisible-Absolute, because no work or name can fully define It. A finite object, like a table or a tree, can be defined; but God, who is infinite and inbounded, cannot be expressed by finite language. Therefore the Rishis or Divine Seers, desirous not to limit the Unlimited, chose the indefinite term ‘That‘ to designate the Absolute.

Though this may be a truth for me as I saw it in my #vision, kind of like closing my eyes, and in the inner realm seeing a movie playing on its own with me as its viewer. It’s also a creative writing which ever adds value to the peace of mind and not disturbs it. For this may make sense in the past or in the future as I come to understand that we are all traversing in the present sense of the parallel universes.
When you love
Petals of roses swirl
Through the universe
We soar to the roof of galaxy
Gather speed to
crash through the inner earth
Where I need to see
For myself the validity
Our wings combined and
Inside the hollow earth splendor
Divine compassion surround
Immense with no bound
There preserved a facet of me
To be now returning to me
From the unity of consciousness
A gift of Forgiveness-
I asked without the ego
What’s there to forgive
For the personal and planets past
For the children men women killed
For the dolphins elephants hunt
For the unjust words and actions
For the present and future
For there’s no selves
But God’s Love
For there’s no bodies
To each their role
For us is to ask forgiveness
And to forgive
Race most kind
I’ve seen you with my inner eyes
I know for those that are ready
You will also lend a guiding light

“When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, ‘I don’t have time.’ But that’s the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.”

“What does it mean that hope is as hollow as fear?
Hope and fear are both phantoms
that arise from thinking of the self.
When we don’t see the self as self,
what do we have to fear?
See the world as your self.
Have faith in the way things are.
Love the world as your self;
then you can care for all things.”
