“Death is the greatest orgasm there is- hence, by the way, people are afraid of orgasm. It is because they are afraid of death. Many people don’t have orgasms. Or even if they do, it is a local orgasm, not very orgasmic- because of fear. The orgasmic moment is a death moment. And in death happens the ultimate orgasm. In that moment you utterly disappear into nothingness. It is the greatest experience.”—Osho (Singing Silence)
I wanted to share this blog post from Sew Green’s blogspot on how to make your own deodorant and so the reviews all say that it’s an outstanding recipe! This is perfect because there’s no packaging, no mysterious chemicals going into your body, and you’re not supporting big business (phew).
But be warned this is a deodorant, not an antiperspirant! And your body will also take a few weeks to adjust to using but in the long run it’ll be worth it :)
I mkae my own deodorant too. I use a recipe similar to this but I use eucalyptus oil (anti fungal) and lavendar oil (soothing and healing for skin, especially if you shave your under arms). It last ages, and is perfect. Even in hot hot weather it doesn’t let sweat smell bad. It does melt under warmer conditions so make sure you have a really well sealed jar or tub, as the oils can leak and create a mess. Its good for your skin, the corn flour/starch keeps you dry and the coconut oil sooths skin. I also add a few tbsps of vitamin e oil for regeneration of new skin. It works wonders and smells beautiful! I found my recipe at bonzai aphrodite. Check out her blog for amazing vegan recipes, clothing ideas, cosmetics and general green ways of living! Have fun smelling beautiful, its cheaper, easier, better for your body and the environment!
I’ve been busy busy all weekend sewing like crazy and getting these beautiful tobacco pouches made. They can also be used as make up bags, evening purses or pencil cases. They are made from felt, recycled material and Supremily buttons! I’m selling them for £9 if anyone is interested and I can make custom ones too. My plan is to make some beautifully intricate ones with large trees spanning the whole face of the pouch and leaves sprouting over the front. If you like them then please give me feedback, as there will be lots more to come!!
The white felt glows under UV light too, and wow do they look fantastic :D
An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the problem Science has with God. He asked one of his new Christian students to stand.
Professor:You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?
Professor:So, you believe in God?
Professor:Is God good?
Professor:My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is God good, then? Hmm?
(Student was silent)
Professor:You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?
Professor:Is Satan good?
Professor:Where does Satan come from?
Professor:That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Professor:Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Professor:So who created evil?
(Student didn’t answer)
Professor:Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Professor:So, who created them?
(Student had no answer)
Professor:Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?
Professor:Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Professor:Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student:No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Professor:Yet you still believe in Him?
Professor:According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student:Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor:Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.
Student:Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Student:And is there such a thing as Cold?
Student:No, sir, there isn’t.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)
Student:Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pon-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)
Student:What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor:Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student:You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light… But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called Darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Professor:So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student:Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor:Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student:Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor:If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.
Student:Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student:Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?
(The class was in uproar)
Student:Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class broke out into laughter)
Student:Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)
Professor:I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student:That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!
Hi there! I wanted to get a new tattoo to do with spirituality and such. I already have a few that follow along this theme. I've been bouncing between ideas such as Buddhist prayers and chants in sanskrit and sak yant tattoos, but I've yet to fall in love with something special. Do you know of any good sources that deal with this kind of stuff? Got any ideas? Thank you :)
Hey, the majority of ideas that I get for my drawings and tattoos and things are from written text online or in books or lyrics. That can be the first point of call for inspiration for you. There are a few blogs on tumblr like crucifytheego and psychedelicmindfluid which have some really amazing written posts. Especially crucify the ego. As for more Buddhist/sanskrit sources I would check out deviantart.com for artists and inspiration. I found this from searching “sanskrit”:
Aside from that my archive has a few images related to what you are looking for, such as this one ?
Some other blogs to check out would be psychedelicbreakfast and acidbong. If anyone reading this knows of any links and soucres then please do reply or message me and I’ll post them on my tumblr. I hope this helps.
My one piece of advice is listen to song lyrics. They can be beautifully inspirational.
Love and happiness and good luck with the tattoo! xoxox
