Sunday Dinner: Knowledge

“The beginning of knowledge

is the discovery of something

we do not understand.”

“Proper teaching is recognized with ease.

You can know it without fail

because it awakens within you that sensation

which tells you this is something

you have always known.”

.

“A process cannot be understood by stopping it.

Understanding must move with the flow of the process,

must join it and flow with it.”

“Without change something sleeps inside us,

and seldom awakens.

The sleeper must awaken.”

“The future remains uncertain and so it should,

for it is the canvas upon which we paint our desires.

Thus always the human condition

faces a beautifully empty canvas.

We possess only this moment

in which to dedicate ourselves continuously

to the sacred presence

which we share and create.”

.

all life, every last crawling bit of it!

We’re all in this beauty together!”

“When a wise man does not understand, he says: “I do not understand.”
The fool and the uncultured are ashamed of their ignorance.
They remain silent
when a question could bring them wisdom.”

  1. Love the baby toads!
    Have you seen any Monarchs on the milkweed? My patch tripled over last year- yikes! Let’s hope we’ll have many babies!

    • Tripled? You must have it in a spot where it is very happy, Eliza! We have butterflies in the garden, but I’ve not personally seen a Monarch here (yet). I was with a local master naturalist on Friday who told me he’d seen Monarch larvae on the Asclepias at the WBG, which is wonderful news! Considering the volume of butterfly weed, of several different varieties growing there, you’d expect a small army of them. My partner spotted the toad yesterday morning and called me out to see him. Sir Toad sat patiently while we admired him and I took a whole series of photos, and never budged until we’d both moved away. It was a great day for toads with rain and mist much of the day. ❤ ❤ ❤ We hope to see him, and his brothers and sisters, again!
