This Sense of Nature

This sense of nature Words cannot express this sense of nature and its abundant charm and there are very few who acquiring modern culture retain it. It is gradually disappearing from the world. Just as the old delicately sensuous, naive and picturesque type of beauty is. That perfection of naturalness is rapidly vanishing everywhere and […]

Walking on Water

Walking on Water It has been some time since this little incident took place. But it is worth remembering. Joshua and his grandson were walking along the banks of the Murray in South Australia. It was a beautiful warm day in late spring. As they walked, they, in their own manner were allowing their minds […]

Taking Care

Taking Care Seeking to attain wisdom The wise man takes care of his human body Perfecting within himself his capabilities from excess Cleansing both his will and thought Not straying into the paths of self-indulgence His mind and senses utterly serene Impervious to the influences of every sort of hostility Welcoming life and death as […]

Taoism and its resemblance to Buddhism

Taoism and its resemblance to Buddhism. Taoism resembles Buddhism in being entirely free from dogma. Nevertheless, both these religions demand faith, not in particular principles, for then dogma would be present but in the existence of a higher good, and a higher state of being to which it is possible for us all to attain.

Limited Attributes

Limited Attributes   With a finite amount of talent there are those who force their minds and bodies for the sake of money or glory to over extend themselves thereby only to do themselves harm.

Country Blokes Don’t Say Much   I first saw her a few weeks ago. She was young, maybe about twelve, darker than most and wearing a teal coloured smock in the usual fashion of maybe five sizes too big. She gave me a big smile and a young girl’s wave and ran off. In 1849 […]

Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking.   Wishful thinking can be very upsetting to others. It may remind them of things that they feel they could have and are drawn into the pattern that they can have more than they have earned. They often feel somewhat victimised by our fanciful indulgences that are so often just an excursion into […]

Whilst on a Trip

Whilst on a Trip Whilst on a trip to the remoter northern regions of Western Australia I became very attached to a very kindly old Taoist monk. He was camped on the edge of the rest centre, away from other people and behind some shady bushes and trees where it was cool and private. We […]

Achievement

Achievement   A man of great attainment is serene, Free from idle thoughts and cares The sky is his roof, And mortality is his vehicle He drives the seasons as his horses. Ascending through the clouds, He soars beyond all known galaxies, Continually pressing forward, Mind unclouded by inordinate desires, He passes to the heavenly […]
