"...hitched to everything else..."







When we try to pick out anything by itself,
we find it is hitched to everything else in the universe.

~John Muir



The light that shines higher than heaven
is the very same light we have within us ...
There is nothing in the universe
that is not myself.

~Upanishads




There is no need for temples,
no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain,
our own heart,
is our temple.
Our philosophy is kindness.

~Dalai Lama


(I like the Dalai Lama's quote because the above image reminded me both of temples (Middle Eastern) and of brain waves.)

  4. Exactly- I saw steeples and an eeg or ekg of some kind... but every time I looked I saw it from another perspective. Very provocative! The quotes really succeed in building the layers of the print- nicely done!

  5. I was thinking of a medical print out too when I saw your image. I do like that last quote too.
