The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Master Bassui reduced the whole of Buddhist teachings to one phrase

“Seeing one’s own nature is Buddhahood.”

When asked how to see into one’s own nature,
master Bassui would reply.

“ Now! Who is asking? ”


The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
Albert Einstein. Living Philosophies, 1931

So many sensational, touching, sensitive images. I also so love the words you use. I'd visit your blog to read the words, even if there were no images, but I'm so happy there are images too! You are one massive talent, Carraol.
