Action



However many holy words you read,

However many you speak
What good will they do you
If you do not act upon them

Risk to Blossom



And the time came

when the comfort of staying tight
in a bud became more
painful than the
risk to blossom.

The Truth


The soul gazes upon Truth without any veils of creatures
Not in a mirror darkly, but it its pure simplicity

Richard of St Victor

whatever ways

Life is a series of nature
and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them-that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward
in whatever ways they like.

Monokl-Yeni bir dergi


ilkin şeyleri, ardından şeyler için ve onlara doğru doğan düşünce ve duyguları, içgüdü ve sezgileri dünya konukluğu içerisinde büyüten, küçülten, daireselleştiren, büken ve yok eden, sonra tekrardan hiçlikten getirerek onları ortaklığı olmayan zeminlere yerleştiren dünya içi ruhtan - o ölümsüz tinlerin yataklarını değiştirmeye cüret gösteren ve zamanı/mekanı silkeleyen gök şimşeğinin yarattığı parlamadan esinlenen ruhtan - yapılma fakat madde şekilli, dışımızdaki her şeyi bize fark ettirmeksizin kurabilecek kadar doğal ama öte yandan akıl almaz ve umursamaz bir kendine yetme, kendine neden olma içindeki sihirli mercek.

Be awe-full



Look out on life with amazement, not shock. The variety, the diversity, the manner of every person, the beauty amidst the drudgery, the contrasts, the opportunities, the heroism in the lives of ordinary people, your gifts, your talents, your friends - even just one friend - is all awesome. Live in awe, and entertain wonder, and you will be knocking on the door of true love. Don't kill it with cynicism or criticism, don't sabotage your life with moaning and complaining. Open the eyes in your head and the eye in your intellect and choose to see the stunning, awesome, diverse beauty of life happening around you right now. Meet it with your heart and you will enrich and be enriched in one single moment.

Thought of the day


What Is Thoroughly Understood Will Not Repeat Itself

In self-awareness there is no need for confession,
for self-awareness creates the mirror
in which all things are reflected without distortion. 
Every thought-feeling is thrown, as it were, 
on the screen of awareness to be observed, studied and understood 
but this flow of understanding is blocked when there is condemnation or acceptance, 
judgment or identification. 
The more the screen is watched and understood—
not as a duty or enforced practice, 
but because pain and sorrow have created the insatiable interest
 that brings its own discipline—
the greater the intensity of awareness, 
and this in turn brings heightened understanding.
You can follow a thing if it moves slowly; 
a rapid machine must be made to slow down 
if one is to study its movements. 
Similarly, thoughts-feelings can be studied and understood 
only if the mind is capable of proceeding slowly; 
but once it has awakened this capacity, it can move 
at a high velocity, which makes it extremely calm. 
When revolving at high speed the several blades 
of a fan appear to be a solid sheet of metal. 
Our difficulty is to make the mind revolve slowly 
so that each thought-feeling can be followed and understood. 
What is deeply and thoroughly understood will not repeat itself.
Khrisnamurti

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind



This is a very timely movie I have seen on sunday...although it has been released in 2004, there was surely a reason why I could only see it yesterday:)

Space


You know what space is. There is space in this room. 
The distance between 
here and your hostel, between the bridge and your home, 
between this bank of the 
river and the other—all that is space. 
Now, is there also space in your mind? 
Or is 
it so crowded that there is no space in it at all? If your mind has space, 
then in that 
space there is silence—and from that silence everything else comes, 
for then you 
can listen, you can pay attention without resistance. 
That is why it is very important 
to have space in the mind. 
If the mind is not overcrowded, not ceaselessly occupied, 
then it can listen to that dog barking, 
to the sound of a train crossing the distant bridge, 
and also be fully aware of what is being said by a person talking here. 
Then the mind is a living thing, it is not dead.

Bugün de geçti gitti

Fuli ne yaptı ne etti
Yine dışarıya belli etmedi
Edemedi
İçindekini
Neden peki?
