Sometimes at night I step outside to get some fresh air and look up to the stars–to take in the big picture. Here’s a link to a visual meditation about this.
Here’s an interesting story about a rare video and photos of a rocket flying in front of a nearly full moon.
A quote from the World-Teacher, Adi Da:
Do not play games with sex. It is a very powerful deluding force, and a diversion from the Inherent Divine Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself, into conditional (or cosmic) illusions.
You do not even see the human body as it is. You see it through pictures, through mind. You put on a mummers’ show for one another. In the most common case, women are the “something”, the sexual “object” for men–and men are the same for women. It is a style. But it is also an illusion about you. It is a game….from “The Only Sorrowless Domain”, the Epilogue in Always Enact Fidelity To Me

Adi Da wrote an essay called “Art and Chaos“. Here is a sentence that I really like:
The conceptual aspect of all art is the mental animation of the intrinsic self-apprehension of order.
Art is making sense out of chaos.
