Religious Thought 30

Said Uddalaka to Shvetaketu: "As bees suck nectar from many a flower And make their honey one, so that no drop Can say, 'I am from this flower or that,' All creatures, though one, know not they are that One. There is nothing that does not come from him. Of everything he is the inmost Self. He is the truth; he is the Self supreme. You are that, Shvetaketu; you are that."
- Chandogya Upanishad

Tibetan lamas often say: "Not seeing is the perfect seeing." Strange words, perhaps, but they have a profound meaning. They describe the advanced meditator's experience of spacious, universal reality, the experience beyond dualism.
- Lama Thubten Yeshe, "Introduction to Tantra"

Consider the way for ordinary people. They should believe in the unity of God. They should expel from their minds all ideas of other gods, or other beings which are similar to God; they should know that God has no equals. Yet equally they should realize there are spiritual forces which are opposed to God. They should trust God, and fear all that are opposed to him.
- Junayd, Tawhid

The opposite of joy is not sorrow. It is unbelief.
- Leslie Weatherhead

And the reason we start again at Bereishit [Genesis]...just as we have merited to finish the Torah, so may we merit to begin her again.
- Rabbi David Abudraham

10 Amazing Facts About Our Bodies

Swallow and Breathe
Fact: Humans are the only mammal that can’t swallow and breathe at the same time.
Every other mammal, and many other non-mammalian animals, can breathe while they eat. In fact, human infants are also able to do so, which lets them breathe while they nurse. We lose this ability around the age of 9 months, when our voice box drops as part of our development. As children and adults, the human voice box lays unusually low in the neck compared to other animals. This allows sound to resonate much more, which is why we are able to produce the wide range of sounds that makes up our speech.
