Nice Work

Arts, healing methods, relaxation methods, elucidations and medical expertise thrive on the strains of educated living.

Some Words

All must be brought back to a unity . . . an authentic unity. - Plotinus, Enneads 5,5,4.

The soul or mind reaching towards the formless finds itself incompetent to grasp where nothing bounds it. - Plotinus, Enneads 6,9.3

Further Words: "It will pass" will not pass?

A student went to his meditation teacher and said,

"My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I'm constantly falling asleep. It's horrible!"

"It will pass," the teacher said calmly.

A week later the student came back to his teacher.

"My meditation is wonderful! I feel aware, peaceful, all alive! It's wonderful!'

"It will pass," said the teacher.

A few words to bring hope into despair, calm down unruly joys and love, and for cheer: "It will pass."

Hopefully, that piece of advice won't pass very quickly. It has been around for many centuries.
