Malaysian artist Monica Lee draws amazingly photo-realistic images with graphite pencils.
your brain always moulds everything it sees together, trying to connect everything. take a look at each individual dot. they’re all moving in straight lines.
You are immortal; you’ve existed for billions of years in different manifestations, because you are Life, and Life cannot die. You are in the trees, the butterflies, the fish, the air, the moon, the sun. Wherever you go, you are there, waiting for yourself.
Don Miguel Ruiz (via cosmicspread)
Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.

I have an absolute horror of belief systems.. belief is hideous, and it’s also completely unnecessary… the thing to keep coming back to is the felt presence of immediate experience, not how do I feel as a Feminist, or as a Marxist, or as a devote of hieronymus bosch… How do I feel? Period. Not through the filter of ideology. As you look back through history, very few ideologies last very long without going sour or becoming toxic. So why should we assume, as all the other societies in the past have assumed…
