Purple Blooms

Amidst shattered dreams And puddle of tears, Monsoons from heaven rains on Hopelessness! Sorrows of the soil Churns from deep within,

Pushing to rise above grief, Embrace purple pleasures And live once more!

Note: (I’ve dropped out of blogging for a while because i’ve been very busy with other projects. I may — or may not — be doing much blogging in the future; it depends upon my time and some other factors. For those who are truly “inquiring” in all of this, what i have written is […]

Living and Enlightenment — Tom’s Nature-up-close Photography and Mindfulness Blog

Posted by Tom’s Nature-up-close Photography and Mindfulness Blog

By Tom

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I’ve taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I’m a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of “Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings” and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the “tack icon” at the upper right corner… or, on my profile page, you can click on the “Thomas Peace” icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!.

We make our own…

This is a record of my journey as a Muslim. I used to be Catholic and belonged to a missionary organisation. After my conversion, I sat on the board of a Muslim converts’ organisation and specialised in da’wah programmes, convert management, interfaith issues and apostasy cases. I am an initiate of a Sufi order. As such, the articles and writings tend to cover these areas. All the Arabic and graphics could not have been done without the help of my wife, Zafirah.
