“The American purple gallinule inhabits warm swamps and marshes in the southeastern states of the United States and the tropical regions of Central America, the Caribbean and northern South America.
This species is resident in southern Florida and the tropics, but most North American birds are migratory, wintering south to Argentina.
The nest is a floating structure in a marsh. Five to ten eggs, buff with brown spots, are laid…”

If you can recognize illusion . . .

“If you can recognize illusion as illusion, it dissolves.
The recognition of illusion is also its ending.
Its survival depends on your mistaking it for reality.”

~ Eckhart Tolle

Everything you have done and been through . . .

“Everything you have done and been through is valuable and important.
In order to be who you are, to know what you know, to be where you are in this moment, you need to go through what you went through.”

The chief beauty about time

18401969_1687882971225332_6892459742842659555_o

“The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.”

― Arnold Bennett

High recognitions . . . Yet nothing is lost.

“All matter has a predetermined lifespan –
each rock, each tree, and, likewise, each celestial body.
As each body nears its stage of disintegration,
it slowly dissolves back into its original components.
Yet nothing is lost.”

– Roselis von Sass (The Book of the Last Judgement)
