    This is one of the reasons I got into Buddhism.

    Buddhist monks spend weeks, up to months making these amazing pictures with colored grains of sand. Slowly adding the sand color by color. RIGHT AFTER they are done, they wash it away into the ocean or blow it out.

    It is supposed to symbolize the teaching of not being attached to material things. When you can have no attachment you will not suffer pain or loss when they are gone.

    As a Muslim, I’m sick of people asking me how I feel about 9/11. What do you want me to say, seriously? Do you want me to say, “It was a great plan, mwahahaha!” before I fly off on a magic carpet?

    I was born and raised in this country and was just as shocked as everyone else to learn there were people on this earth so vile as to commit such a horrific attack - or to even think about doing it.

    But I didn’t do it. Neither did 99.999999999 percent of the roughly 1.5 billion people in the world who also call themselves Muslims. So why should I or any other Muslim apologize for what happened? Nickleback is planning on releasing another album. Should I ask white people to apologize for that?

    I am going to reblog this quote every year.

    Adolfo Bimer (1985) is a Chilean Artist, his most recent work in painting wanders between the discipline of the portrait and a development in new techniques of direct interaction of painting materials, that causes chemical reactions which are used in both metaphorically and visual terms to represent the human body.
