Reality


You live in illusion and in the appearance of things. There is a Reality. You are the Reality. But you do not know it. If you wake up to that Reality, you will know that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.

Very philosophical for a Wednesday...

Pauline said...

Nothing to this reality thing, then...

Lee said...

Mwah! My head hurts!

Barbara said...

It's when I see myself standing in the long line that represents the history of the civilization that I realize what a small role I actually play. No one would even miss me if I got out of line.

I want to comment on your post, yet it is so perfect and self-contained that there's little I can say.

How about this, though: I hope you have a lovely weekend, and please keep the photos of penises and rocks coming.

meggie said...

Haha! Like Tanya said.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Hi Rise;

I thought I'd get back to you re: posting YouTube videos. This actually isn't something I'd ever done before, but I kind of limped through it. One of the first things I ran across was this help page.

It was ... sort of helpful. What I found was that if you go to the video you're interested in and look just to the right of the area where the video shows up, there's another little area with information about the video. THAT area has a category called "Embed". The string of goop just to the right of the word Embed is a piece of HTML that, when you put it in the text of your blog post, will let you add videos already on YouTube to your webpage.

This is probably about as clear as mud, so I made a picture of a typical YouTube video page and highlighted the string of text you'd need to add to your page.

Here's the picture.

Note that the string is specific to each video, so you'll need to go to the video you're interested in to get the right one, not copy the string shown in my picture.

Hope this helps; let me know how it goes.

You mean it's all or nothing?

Isabelle said...

I feel very confused. Penises? That rock looks like a face to me.

Molly said...

Come on Rise! We need a new post here or a photo. Throw us something! Isabelle must have missed the swashbuckling fellow on your last wordless Wednesday!

sMC said...

My float said...

Profound!

Avus said...

Hell! That reminds me of a Chang Chao epigram. He dreamt he was a butterfly, but when he woke he was himself again. Which was reality? Was he a butterfly dreaming of being a man, or a man dreaming he was a butterfly!
Nice to visit - came via Lee's "Curate's Egg". Anyone who lists Leonard Cohen as a favourite is alright by me!
