A decision made and one I hope to keep.

With that last blog “Status update becomes a blog,” I’ve made yet another decision. I’m really tired of being bombarded by the less than helpful images and general “news” of the world on my timeline/feed/whatever the hell it’s called, so I am going to change what I want to see on my timeline/feed/whatever the hell it’s called. I’m going to change what I post on my timeline/feed/whatever the hell it’s called. Bye bye, CNN, ABC and the like. I ❤️ ya Huffpost, but you gotta go. Let me put it this way. If it’s not music related, family related, garden related and basic general stuff; I’m not going to post it. After all I don’t and people should not get their “news” from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and the like.

We’ll see how this works..

Ashtavakra Gita 3:12-13

Pure of heart, He desires nothing, Even in despair. He is content In the knowledge of the Self. With whom may I compare him? With clear and steady insight He knows that whatever he sees It is by its very nature nothing. How can he prefer one thing to another?

– Ashtavakra Gita 3:12-13


Number Two…

Ok, something to lighten the mood…

When deciding what category to place a blog, I’ve discovered that I have an extensive list. So, this blog is actually the category links. That might prove interesting. Tell me what you think.

I’ve just listed A and B ….I’m going to string you along….tease ya a bit!

Ciao ciao!



“All things arise, Suffer change, And pass away. This is their nature. When you know this, Nothing perturbs you, Nothing hurts you. You become still. It is easy.” Ashtavakra Gita 11:1

Be happy

In the ocean of being There is only one. There was and there will be Only one. You are already fulfilled. How can you be bound or free? Wherever you go, Be happy.

– Ashtavakra Gita 15:18

the root and branches of the world

When you live without discrimination, Desire arises. When desire persists, Feelings of preference arise, Of liking and disliking. They are the root and branches of the world. – – Ashtavakra Gita 16:7

You are, you have…YOU

You are the endless sea in whom all the worlds like waves Naturally rise and fall. You have nothing to win, Nothing to lose. Child, You are pure awareness, Nothing less. You and the world are one. So who are you to think You can hold on to it, Or let it go? How could you!
