Apparently in world there are two major universal forces .Good and Bad.
Nevertheless these two universal forces are also manifested in mankind through different forms as for good is identified as knowledge while bad as evil .
Divinely is that the whole life itself is wrapped up with ideal of choice you make. Which implicitly is aligned again with cause and effect framework.
5/5 @defides5sommets - Mont Élie
Gravir une montagne, c’est comme notre chemin de vie: il y a des embûches comme les pierres, les racines, les cours d’eau que nous devons escalader, passer par-dessus ou contourner. Parfois on perd pied, on tombe et on se relève. Mais, ce que l’on doit retenir, c’est qu’il ne faut jamais rebrousser chemin, garder la tête haute et continuer à fixer l’horizon afin d’atteindre notre objectif: le sommet.
Head of Attis (or Atys). Atys was a Phrygian God, consort of famous Goddess Kybele. Phrygians were interesting people, closely associated with music, famous for their King Midas, their caps and carpets and some other beautiful artifacts. Phrygians were originated in southern Thracia then migrated to Anatolia after the collapse of Hittite Empire. They settled in the North-Western part of Central Anatolia. Their capital was Gordium, which is in Yassıhöyük region in Polatlı, Ankara. One of their significant remains is Midas Monument, which is in the beautiful city of Eskişehir. This monument will be another topic later in my posts. What I want to write about is their famous caps, which later became the symbol of liberty. This cap as a symbol was used by Romans, French Revolutionaries and it can be seen in the coat of arms of the United States Senate and various South-American countries. #ancient#ancientart#ancientanatolia#phrygia#phyrigians#frigya#frig#phyrgiancap#ancients#liberty#symbolism#kybele#attis#eskişehir#ankara#turkey#amazing#beautiful#cute#midas#kingmidas#ancienthistory#archaeology
Peregrino que vas buscando en vano
un camino mejor que tu camino,
¿cómo quieres que yo te dé la mano,
si mi signo es tu signo, Peregrino?
No llegarás jamás a tu destino;
llevas la muerte en ti como el gusano
que te roe lo que tienes de humano...
¡lo que tienes de humano y de divino!
Sigue tranquilamente, ¡oh, caminante!
Todavía te queda muy distante
ese país incógnito que sueñas...
Y soñar es un mal. Pasa y olvida,
pues si te empeñas en soñar, te empeñas
en aventar la llama de tu vida.
On this day in 1814, First Lady Dolley Madison saves a portrait of #GeorgeWashington from British troops. She also saves other #WhiteHouse valuables and a copy of the Declaration of #Independence . Her heroism occurred during the #WarOf1812 between Americans and the British. When Dolley heard that British troops were coming toward D.C., she abandoned many of the Madisons’ personal belongings and instead chose to save the portrait. Here’s what she didn’t know: The portrait was a copy of the original Gilbert Stuart painting. Even more interesting? If she had known to look for it, she would have been able to tell that it was only a copy: The word “United States” is deliberately misspelled “United Sates” for this very purpose. (See the books in the lower left hand corner?) Saving the portrait was harder than it might sound! Dolley explained in a letter to her sister: “[The portrait] requires to be unscrewed from the wall. This process was found too tedious for these perilous moments; I have ordered the frame to be broken, and the canvass taken out it is done, and the precious portrait placed in the hands of two gentlemen of #NewYork , for safe keeping.” As she was preparing to leave, Dolley’s letter concluded: “And now, dear sister, I must leave this house, or the retreating army will make me a prisoner in it….When I shall again write you, or where I shall be tomorrow, I cannot tell!” The British arrived not too long after Dolley left. They feasted in the White House that night, using the presidential silverware and china, before setting fire to it. No president was able to inhabit the White House again until its restoration was completed in 1817.

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." - Thomas Jefferson #EndTheFed#Money#Fiat#Banking#Liberty
