[ ed ] Fragmented, Uninformed and victims of 'echo chambers'!

On the #MSM in the UK, I waste little time listening to their #microOpinions but rather look at the broad strokes, as a media channel it was the only one set up with the remit of #mildDistruption ...

...and I like Jon Snow [ and Dan come to that, real people IMHO ]

Illuminated International Space Station Transit

In this image, taken by +Dylan O'Donnell from his own Observatory in Byron Bay, Australia, using a 9.25″ Celestron Edge HD telescope and a Canon 70D digital camera you can see the International Space Station (ISS) making a pass in front of the Moon.

As you can see the ISS even shows color detail in this image, thanks to the recently set sun which allowed Dylan to get color details instead of just a silhouette. You really need to take a look at the fine details in the image, make sure to head to Dylan's website (https://goo.gl/5kFP5T), where you can download a bigger version of the image, as well as the raw files if you are a skeptic or interested in processing them yourself.

If you follow this collection you might have seen many other images taken by Dylan, but I really like this one as it beautifully shows what truly magnificent things mankind can achieve, not only having a working space station but also the means for amateurs to take pictures like this.

The awareness of whatever is arising in the mind ~ Thrangu Rinpoche
http://justdharma.com/s/bc5v4

Meditation is not supposed to be the fabrication or the reinforcement of some particular state, but simply the cultivation of the awareness of whatever is arising in the mind.

– Thrangu Rinpoche

Our lives are interdependent ~ 17th Karmapa
http://justdharma.com/s/l1s9k

For our life to have meaning, first we need a purpose, and this purpose should be long-term and enduring. It should not be aimed solely at the immediate future, nor should the purpose of our life be selfish. Our lives are interdependent. Our happiness arises through our interdependence with others, as does our suffering. Therefore, since our lives depend on one another, a meaningful life requires that we feel concern for others.

– 17th Karmapa

A sly man would say he sees these because they are meant for him.

Speak peacefully ~ Longchenpa
http://justdharma.com/s/h4xl9

Pointing out faults to a short-tempered retinue
In these degenerate times, even with the wish to benefit,
Gives rise to negative states of mind.
‘To speak peacefully’ is my heart advice.

– Longchenpa
