Recently, it came to our attention that the situation has taken a more serious turn. We are channeling most of our resources towards this issue. Our lawyer has informed us that we can’t give out details as of now.

 

We are organizing an impromptu benefit show for our soon to be rising legal costs. The situation is this serious. We ask all of you to spread this bulletin so that everybody in our community is aware of this.

Stillness Speaks: Eckhart Tolle

Eckhart Tolle is amazing. He explains with such simplicity. If you don’t have time to read, I recommend watching “The Flowering of Human Consciousness

How short-lived every human experience is, how fleeting our lives. Is there anything that is not subject to birth and death, anything that is eternal?

Consider this: if there were only one color, let us say blue, and the entire world and everything it is were blue, then there would be no blue. There needs to be something that is not blue so that blue can be recognized; otherwise, it would not “stand out”, would not exist.

In the same way, does it not require something that is not fleeting and impermanent for the fleetingness of all thing to be recognized? In other words: if everything, including yourself, were impermanent, would you even know it? Does the fact that you are aware of and can witness the short-lived nature of all forms, including your own, not mean that there is something in you that is not subject to decay?

When you are twenty, you are aware of your body as strong and vigorous; sixty years later, you are aware of your body as weakened and old. Your thinking too may have changed from when you were twenty, but the awareness that knows your body is young or old or that your thinking has changed has undergone no change. That awareness is the eternal in you – consciousness itself. It is the formless One Life. Can you lose It? No, because you are It.

Eckhart Tolle, from Stillness Speaks

Yellow is the color for FALL 2008

Yellow was all over the fall 2008 runways! I am not sure how I feel about this color, it is certainly growing in my head, my best friend has loved it for years. For this reason, I got a pleated sunny yellow knee length skirt to rock this fall with white gladiator sandals.

Guy Bourdin Photography

 If you are not familiar with this french photographer I will hang my head. Guy worked for Vogue for over 30 years. No one handles strong themes the way Guy did, such as such as sex, death, violence, glamour and fear. He provoke a new way of looking at people in general. I love his work. Have a look.

Amy’s Mother in Law

Amy Winehouse’s mother in law Georgette and her husband had an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live on 7/28/07. I think she may be as strung out as her son. I had never read this interview before. Geogrette urged fans to stop buying her music. Someone please clarify. How is this going to help her son. She went on to say that Amy’s record company should be pro active. Georgette, they have been very much so, more than you. You can find the interview at      mirror.co.uk

Here’s what Georgette looks like.

Eckhart Tolle: Quotes from The Power Of Now

 “all the things that truly matter — beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace — arise from beyond the mind”

“All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness”  

“Emotion arises at the place where mind and body meet. It is the body’s reaction to your mind — or you might say, a reflection of your mind in the body”

“Love, joy, and peace cannot flourish until you have freed yourself from mind dominance” 

“Death is a stripping away of all that is not you. The secret of life is to “die before you die” — and find that there is no death”

“To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation”

“Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry — all forms of fear — are cause by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence”

“You find God the moment you realize that you don’t need to seek God”

“Relationships do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you”
