Quote of the Day – February 13 2013

“We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it is all about.”
— Joseph Campbell


What is that rapture? What does it mean to have inner life? It means questions for sure and answers that lead off into more questions? It means witnessing the behaviour of the self and that of others, not withholding judgement for we all judge but watching that judgement as well, knowing that it can be faulty. It means honesty and a struggle to be honest even if that honesty may cause pain. That one I get stuck on often. But how can we have integrity without honesty and what does our response to the outside world matter if our inner life contains too many lies?

  1. Love the ripple and the storm. What you wrote about…I have a question: what if you don’t know what your mind is telling you? How do you know if what you are assuming is the truth but could very possibly be a lie? You are innocent in this case, are you not if you cannot detect what is the truth? Ponder. Hi by the way, I’ve been under the weather, Which I think has actually been a safe place rather than in it. 😎 jk

    1. A friend of mine speaks to me quite often about the wisdom of discernment. I know that quite often as much as I might try telling myself that a lie is the truth, it doesn’t sit very well and the universe tends to rub my nose in it before too long.
      Hope you’re feeling better =) <3
