Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 22 : Home

Accept and you become whole,
Bend and you straighten,
Empty and you fill,

Decay and you renew,

Want and you acquire,
Fulfill and you become confused.
The sage accepts the world

Tree of Happiness

On the Night of Creation I was awake,
Busy at work while everyone slept.
I was there to see the first wink
and hear the first tale told.
I was the first one caught

I have lived in the room of treasures.
Why shouldn’t this bubble become the sea?
I am the secret that lies at its bottom…

Shhhh… no more words
Hear only the voice within.
Remember, the first thing He said was:
“We are beyond words.”

mystery of mirror

The Mirror.© Knut Skjærven

desire to see own image is the cause of cosmic creation….

so to view our self in mirror is our innermost desire also ….. 

many time with outer hats of roles ….. hat with the price tag ….represents the desire to be famous …..

also are some eye wears ….representing the paths we follow ….

very interesting is more light on hat rather than face ……

and a flying kiss in self admiration ….

we all live a mystery of mirror ……

illusion in reality …
