    hello world

    ha most definitely not wise yet, i am just trying to build one stone at a time , my mind into a temple in which to worship life. wrote the above on the last day of being 19, thought it was a nice send off to my teens. thanks for positive responses though, it helps me see that i'm on the right track
  7. i wrote the following after a development of my views, a few missing pieces to my puzzle of life finally fell into place and somehow writing was the easiest way for me to not only view it for myself but also to express this to anyone else. In such uncertain times, it seems that everyone is terrified of them selves, not only their worst fear of the most horrible thing they could be, but also of the greatest self they could become. It is as if in our duality we cannot be free to experience our self. To be at one with yourself is the most magical and powerful important experience. It is when you truly believe in all the beautiful unique gifts that are available to each and everyone of us - that the impossible can and not only can, but will become in the instant that you ask for it. It is all a matter of belief. The problem that holds humanity back from accessing their higher self seems to be not only worldwide - but a universal problem, as is the gift of consciousness comes as a doubled edged sword. At first it seems an incredibly difficult task, an aching burden and we battle with our own inner conflict throughout however many life times as it takes us to realize that we trap ourselves in mundane, unhappy, unfulfilling existence by choice. It is this realization which releases us into 'the kingdom of heaven' as such, where just as the universe perpetually expands, so do our minds and our capabilities. Each soul contains barriers that may have been left untouched for many lives, and addressing these blocks that we set ourselves will seem like the most horrible and terrifying thing that we could make ourselves go through. But it is that such terrifying act which sets us free, once we can work through our problem with our self and move forward from the restraints that each of us create. It is not arriving at one final point in life that is important - but the journey itself. Many people only experience life in its raw unfiltered form and see it for the majesty that it is in the moments during and after their death. It all becomes so clear and obvious and they feel it has all worked out in that instant -but then they instantly forget these universal truths and are born into another body back on earth, to live the same process again. Happiness is not to be gained from power, sexual prowess, money or material possessions, but from acceptance of the beautiful intrinsic wonder of life. We are so lucky but we just cannot see it. We are each carrying a masterpiece within ourselves, we just need to step out of the way. If we want to stop the war, we must begin with ourselves.

    pink peyote

    cool it very well could be, the pink ones seem to last alot longer than albinos so you should have a good wee while to consider weather to graft esp since you say its one of the biggest and looks healthy! i have only had a couple pink san pedros but they are still on their own roots and a good 4 months old.
