A Place of Peace

SUN AND BIRDS

When one no longer considers anything
in the world his own, when he no longer
grieves for what no longer exists, when
he is no longer influenced by ideas,
he reaches a place of peace.

  1. Sublime perfection and Spiritual harmony has been reached.
    To rise above the material world opens the Soul to Utopia.

  2. Hello Eddie, in fact, strangely, I disagree – sorry, I would like to like your post, but…

    IF…

    When one no longer considers anything
    in the world his own, when he no longer
    grieves for what no longer exists, when
    he is no longer influenced by ideas,
    he reaches a place of peace.

    and one has not replaced all of that with something HIGHER
    then one would have lost one’s soul… 😦 no?

    I mean, should I not grieve for the species who do not exist any more –
    because of their habitat being over-exploited by humans?

    Should I not be influenced by the wise sages of the past?
    Especially nowadays with no spiritual leaders left?

    Maybe I misunderstood.
