After over a year away from Tumblr I have returned. I have shifted my main focus from this blog over to The Atheist’s Bible.
It is a collection of quotes/images/music/poetry about God and Art and Stuff. Check it out, and follow me!
I have reblogged some stuff from there here so you can see what it is all about. Give it a shot.
“If your brother or sister is being injured by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love.”
“The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground. But in the love poetry of every age, the woman longs to be weigned down by the man’s body. The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life’s most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become.
Conversely, the absolute absence of a burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into the heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant.”
-Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
“Do you know of someone whose main function in life seems to be to make themselves and others miserable, to spread unhappiness? Forgive them, for they too are part of the awakening of humanity. The role they play represents an intensification of the nightmare of egoic consciousness, the state of non-surrender. There is nothing personal in all this. It is not who they are.”
— Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks
“An avatar lives in the omnipresent Spirit; for him there is no distance inverse to the square. Only one reason, therefore, motivates [an avatar] in maintaining his physical form … the desire to furnish humanity with a concrete example of its own possibilities.”
“…[T]he erect and the fallen are but one man standing in twilight between the night of his pigmy-self and the day of his god-self.”
-Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
“CHOICE. That’s the difference between emptiness and substance, between a life actually lived and a wimpy shadow cast on an office wall.” — Tom Robbins, Still Life With Woodpecker
