FUTURE SACRED
The Connected Creativity of Nature

by Julie J. Morley
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant

I’m currently reading Chasing Shadows by Swati Avasthi. I can relate to it more than I do most books because it takes place in Chicago, a place I have visited many times, and it covers a lot of themes such as loss, friendship, and the anxieties over getting into college that I have experienced in my life.

One of the main characters gets accepted into her top school of choice, and when I read that part, I thought…wow, the author really hit the mark on what that feels like!

We passed unforgettable hours together. Our discussions were long and he helped me fill gaps in my thinking, setting me on my way to the solution of many fundamental problems. I was struck by his enthusiasm.

His appearance was impressive. Of medium height he was athletic in build, and had a large forehead. His eyes were vivacious and expressed sensibility, intelligence and force. He had an ironic smile that revealed the contempt of a superior spirit for men and the world. He was thirty-one years old, but already had the aura of genius.

After two months wandering around Italy with the police at my heels, I returned to Arcola to see Renzo again. But Emma, his wife, told me that he was also hunted and that I could only meet him at night in the forest.

Once again we had long discussions and I was able to appreciate his exceptional qualities as a poet, philosopher and man of action even more. I valued the power of his intellect and his fine sensitivity which was like that of a Greek god or a divine beast. We parted for the last time at dawn.

19 years old, man (or younger). these italian anarchists were old beyond their years and probably saw more in six months than you will your entire life. you can see the restless and aggressive passion pouring out onto the page. it's the kind of fast paced writing you see when a sharp young intellect has too quickly absorbed a lot of heavy philosophy and hasn't the opportunity or environment to grow older (in) and process it all. N called them the 'fiery youth'. renzo is clearly his mentor... older, more calculated, and better written.

I'm reading a bunch of books on Romanticism because I'm putting together a Romanticism anthology that brings together the philosophy and art. I'm trying to compact it as much as possible but I'm finding it difficult. There's just so much awesomeness from that movement.

Not so much a book, but excerpts paragraphs and chapters on certain topics that pique my interest, on a daily basis.. my interests dictating my reading material.

I have no interest in reading whole books anymore, and haven’t for a long time now.
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite.. - MagsJ

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something at some point in time.. Wait, What! - MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I, just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a really bad DJ - MagsJ

My last book was"The Plague" by Albert Camus

I like reading books about places or events when I'm actually in that place or event - in this case, this book seemed like the best thing to read when everyone's pretending that there's a Bubonic plague sweeping the world and people are dropping dead like flies on the street. The book was well researched so his descriptions of the plague and how different people reacted to the threat was interesting. Lot's of the same things are going on today. Fear makes people do crazy things.

Ironic that this bit of fiction contained more facts than all the fiction coming out of the WHO, CDC, Gates and Fauci. Sad. :-"
