FLICKR ALBUM: corazón contento

People can live their whole lives without love, and still live, and still function. And the same is true of wilderness in that not having known, they don’t know what they’ve missed or what they have lost. It actually doesn’t mean anything until you’ve experienced it yourself.”
- Peter Dombrovskis, Australia’s most celebrated wilderness photographer, 2003 Wildness documentary, cited by Tom Walter

The Indian activist Mahatma Gandhi lead many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy 'passive resistance,' but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning 'love force' or 'truth force.' Truth (satya) implies love, he said, and firmness (agraha) is a synonym for force. Satyagraha is thus the force which is born of truth and love.
- Rob Brezsny, Free Will Astrology

When you see the world as lover, every being, every phenomenon, can become -- if you have a clever, appreciative eye -- an expression of that ongoing, erotic impulse.
