"...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.


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.)



  1. HI BONNIE - beautiful image and wonderful "quotes", thanks....hope all is well.
    Love Gail

  2. i can sign on to a philosophy of kindness for first thought looking at the image was of a cityscape...and i did see some temples there as well which plays it well withthe quote too...there is nothing that is not myself...true that...its all connected...

    good to see you...smiles.

  3. What a beautiful image and the quote is fantastic!

  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.
