Not long now...

until we say goodbye to another year.

And then what?

We do 'it' all over again.

Who was it that said: 

"do the same thing, get the same result"?

Einstein?

I'm not sure; but whatever your circumstances and the fact that you don't (or rather can't) will your will, if you're expressed to move a particular way, you owe it to your soul to follow your call.

Blessings,

Ju.

Osho

He's no longer here and to what extent you can ever know if a quote is accurate but, nevertheless, here's one I particularly like:

“I'm simply saying that there is a way to be sane. I'm saying that you can get rid of all this insanity created by the past in you. Just by being a simple witness of your thought processes.

It is simply sitting silently, witnessing the thoughts, passing before you. Just witnessing, not interfering not even judging, because the moment you judge you have lost the pure witness. The moment you say “this is good, this is bad,” you have already jumped onto the thought process.

It takes a little time to create a gap between the witness and the mind. Once the gap is there, you are in for a great surprise, that you are not the mind, that you are the witness, a watcher.

And this process of watching is the very alchemy of real religion. Because as you become more and more deeply rooted in witnessing, thoughts start disappearing. You are, but the mind is utterly empty.

That’s the moment of enlightenment. That is the moment that you become for the first time an unconditioned, sane, really free human being.”

My tweets

Twitter

I've trimmed the numbers and lost a few followers, but it now feels more balanced.

To be honest, I don't spend much time there these days. Also, I don't like to join a conversation mid-way as it looks clunky and rude

I still cross-post my blogs and share the odd quote but that's about it.

I'd like to think I'll still be using it at the turn of the next century but something tells me it may have gone the way of so many other platforms (I miss Posterous and the original Tumblr).

Do you use Twitter? If so, why?

Wine

I miss the fact we no longer have any commentators or experts on TV. Just once in a while I'd love to know what I'm drinking.
