Dog Days of Summer - Day 3

Oh  -  this is just so darn much fun - a book - and image search based on it's title - and a random page transcribed from the book.  If you have just landed on this page - you may want to go back to the beginning of these posts...which would be Monday, July 14.

Today's book is one of my very favorite books, A New Earth written by the indomitable Eckhart Tolle.  First a visual.  I will put in Google Images search, NEW EARTH ART.  Let's see what happens....

This is known as the Star Tetrahedron or mystical merkaba.
Let us now open our book!
....and I find that the book is opened to page 77 and here is what is written there:
"You want peace.  There is no one who does not want peace.  Yet there is something else in you that wants the drama, wants the conflict.  You may not be able to feel it at this moment.  You may have to wait for a situation or even just a thought that triggers a reaction in you;  someone accusing you of this or that, not acknowledging you, encroaching on your territory, questioning the way you do things, an argument about money....Can you then feel the enormous surge of force moving through you, the fear, perhaps being masked by anger or hostility?  Can you hear your own voice becoming harsh or shrill, or louder and a few octaves lower?  Can you be aware of your mind racing to defend it position, justify, attack, blame?  In other words, can you awaken at that moment of unconsciousness?  Can you feel that there is something in you that is at war, something that feels threatened and wants to survive at all cost, that needs the drama in order to assert its identity as the victorious character within that theatrical production?  Can you feel there is something in you that would rather be right than at peace?"
I just love ET.

Time for me to get on with the day and I hope your day is bright and beautiful and peaceful.

'Till tomorrow!
