Do you believe “beauty will redeem the Self”?

As simple as it immediately sounds cliché, the philosophy runs deep. Yet in practice, it should be everyone’s philosophy, if they can help it of course. Appreciating and defining an independent idea of beauty is very powerful. It demystifies the role of art and in a very, very far distance offers an enriched view of simplicity, which in turn unveils an authentic self.

Some people never know the potential of their self. Imagine that.

We have two small table lamps by the bedside, good for reading and knowing I could dream while awake. We never wanted to sell them because they are hard to find, these cozy, gentle pieces, many torn apart for their lamp bases or shades, depending on which is the grander. Of course you can use a brighter bulb and place them anywhere in the house, the light will still be warm and effective. We are sharing these new finds because you know reading and dreaming is good for the soul :)

Clyde has come back onto our roof, but not without scratches on his face and a quieter disposition. HY is of course really pleased and I feel she may like to suckle the thing hahahaha.

But really, Clyde likes HY very much and will listen to her. The feeling is very mutual.

I really want to write something here about the difference between being happy and being free. Many people say they ‘just want to be happy’. Yet their actions bound them as they go about their business of ‘being happy’. How many times must it be said that money is not happiness? Money can buy some happiness but it cannot buy that bone-deep sense of being free and ultimately, this freedom is the ground on which happiness can take root.

Persisting happiness can only take root on free grounds. All else is moment to moment, chance by chance.

Next time I will remember to write about choice.

Is it hard for you to believe IT IS three months to Christmas 2014??? It is for me. Where did the year go? Where are the children I haven’t yet borne?

What a special year 2014 is. We have concluded what we want, if so, in a ‘store’, and we have more or less mapped out the rest of our lives as *secret*. We have learnt the power (the potential) of two minds, and we will be using the rest of the years available to us to wing it :)

Of course, all this is possible only with a great deal of uncertainty :D
