Odd - I touched on some of the same themes in my entry today. A couple of quotes I mentioned:

"My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants."
J. Brotherton

"I'd like to live as a poor man with lots of money."
Pablo Picasso

Also, I thought it was curious that you wrote about the foolishness of taking the road less travelled. Of course, I think your take on the foolish, in this context, is a lot like my own.

Evelyn;

Wow! I just finished ALMOST booking a ticket to NYC and then put it off because of a recent arrival of an enormous gas bill. Flip over to you blog and find some inspiring stuff. It was nice to get to meet you in NOLA sorry you were on your way out. Can wealth exist in a non-dualistic world? I should read more of the blog before I start asking questions.

Evelyn -

I wanted to put it out there again - I can feel it. The energies of all the ideas being aligned now - reading your blog entries, other groups I belong to, my own thoughts, my business. Everyting is coming together in the most beautiful of ways. I've learned being aware is one part Knowing is a nother. Then accepting and finally committing to action makes the energies align. I think I am finally there to start and continue... Thank you -

Evelyn!

Oh, my ferocious and sweet anarchist mystic (though I think that might be redundant!)... I love your words so much.

And I only wanted to say that I went to see Adyashanti tonight (though I loved the satsang I'm not sure I'll be going back) and you were very much in my heart.

"In solitary uplands far away,
Betwixt the blossoms of a rosy spray,
Dreaming upon the wonderful sweet face,
Of Nature, in a wild and pathless place."
..
Oh Evelyn this Tennyson poem speaks so much of you. And you're right... there's more betwixt summer and the sun than there is between us. X

I said to the wanting-creature inside me:
What is this river you want to cross?
There are no travelers on the river-road, and no road.
Do you see anyone moving about on that bank, or nesting?

There is no river at all, and no boat, and no boatman.
There is no tow rope either, and no one to pull it.
There is no ground, no sky, no time, no bank, no ford!

And there is no body, and no mind!
Do you believe there is some place that will make the soul less thirsty?
In that great absence you will find nothing.

Be strong then, and enter into your own body; there you have a solid place for your feet.
Think about it carefully!
Don't go off somewhere else!

Kabir says this: just throw away all thoughts of imaginary things,
and stand firm in that which you are.

--Kabir

"God's work just doesn't pay." Me: "Lately I'm finding the opposite to be true; it's becoming the only thing that does." AMEN to that.

You have a delightful and whimsical blog. I found you via Moon River's post about you. Will come for return visits.
