there's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

On how I view the hamster wheel....

"In a world of fugitives, those taking the opposite direction will always be said to be running away."

T.S. Elliot

On Being and Becoming.....

"Every particle of the world is a mirror, in each atom lies the blazing light of a thousand suns. Cleave the heart of a rain-drop, a hundred pure oceans will flow forth. Look closely at a grain of sand, the seed of a thousand beings can be seen. The foot of an ant is larger than an elephant; In essence, a drop of water is no different than the Nile. In the heart of a barely-corn lies the fruit of a hundred harvest; Within the pulp of a millet seed an entire universe can be found. In the wing of a fly, an ocean of wonder; In the pupil of the eye, an endless heaven. Though the inner chamber of the heart is small, the Lord of both worlds gladly makes His home there. "

Mahmud Shabistari
