this blog is the continuation of a genuine mystical tradition, unless you get in daily contemplative time and abstain to a significant degree from "entertainment" then you are just wasting your time and mine !

That's a thought-provoking reply, I quite like it. I'm struggling with it, but I like struggling. What's your reply to this Kierkegaard?"When around one everything has become silent, solemn as a clear, starlit night, when the soul comes to be alone in the whole world, then before one there appears, not an extraordinary human being, but the eternal power itself, then the heavens open, and the I chooses itself or, more correctly, receives itself. Then the personality receives the accolade of knighthood that ennobles it for an eternity." - Kierkegaard, Either/Or
he lived in cities !
Well, even if you're unfortunate enough to live in the cities, you could become an astronomer and get some astronomical instruments.
