Time And Space Is In The Mind

“Time is in the mind, space is in the mind. The law of cause and effect is also a way of thinking. In reality all is here and now and all is one. Multiplicity and diversity are in the mind only.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Giving One’s Self Up To God

“He who gives himself up to the Self that is God is the most excellent devotee. Giving one’s self up to God means remaining constantly in the Self without giving room for the rise of any thoughts other than that of the Self. Whatever burdens are thrown on God, He bears them. Since the supreme power of God makes all things move, why should we, without submitting ourselves to it, constantly worry ourselves with thoughts as to what should be done and how, and what should not be done and how not? We know that the train carries all loads, so after getting on it why should we carry our small luggage on our head to our discomfort, instead of putting it down in the train and feeling at ease?” – Sri Ramana Maharshi

Pure Love


“I love, because my love is not dependent on the object of love. My love is dependent on my state of being. So whether the other person changes, becomes different, friend turns into a foe, does not matter, because my love was never dependent on the other person. My love is my state of being. I simply love.” – Osho

Giving Light To The Whole World

“Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world. The sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi –

Self-Realization – “Love-Realization”

“Love and the Self are one, and the discovery of either is the realization of both.”

Snow masses in Mallersdorf-Pfaffenberg

In the years I’ve lived in Germany I’ve never seen this much snow. I like it!

Ape and Vespa Veterans

I made the following photos from the Ape and Vespa veterans at the Rollerladen in Pfaffenberg. This company restores used Vespas and then sells them. They also sell new vehicles and scooter accessories. The photos were made by the mobile phone — not the best quality but nevertheless I think they express much “atmosphere”.

Snow Biking

It was an excellent weather again this day. I just came back from "snow biking". It’s cold and the snow is really lightweight, pure powder. Is there a word like "powder biking" as "powder skiing"? Anyway it was much fun and I came home almost dry. I love my new dirtboard:
