2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

“The One indwells all things”

“The One indwells all things both individually and collectively; and within the multitude which seems opposed to the One, the One Itself makes the multitude, for what is a multitude but one repeated over and over again? And how may a whole be composed of many if there be no union? And how may a part belong to a whole or to a number unless it itself is something, by which I mean some one? The One, therefore, indwells all things, and if it were taken away each and every thing would be lost”.

~ Marsilio Ficino

‘deep within us presides the judge’

“…deep within us presides the judge, the inextinguishable light of reason, the just discrimination between true and false, between good and evil, and the inexorable goad of conscience. Through this law, which has been imparted to all, God directs all things to the common good…”

Marsilio Ficino ‘Gardens of Philosophy: Ficino on Plato’ Arthur Farndell (Translator)

‘the upholders of one Order, and the inhabitants of one City’

“Address yourselves to the promotion of the well-being and tranquility of the children of men. Bend your minds and wills to the education of the peoples and kindreds of the earth, that haply the dissensions that divide it may, through the power of the Most Great Name, be blotted out from its face, and all mankind become the upholders of one Order, and the inhabitants of one City.”

~ Bahá’u’lláh
