How To Use The Power Of Pictures To Change Your Life

"I'm beginning to like the idea of you coming with me to the Armenian restaurant, because you'll learn - or, rather, become conscious of - three important things. First, that as soon as people decide to confront a problem, they realize that they are far more capable than they thought they were.
Second, that all energy and all knowledge come from the same unknown source, which we usually call God. What I've tried to do in my life, ever since I first started out on what I believe to be my path, is to honor that energy, to connect up with it every day, to allow myself to be guided by the signs, to learn by doing and not by thinking about doing.
Third, that no one is alone in their troubles; there is always someone else thinking, rejoicing, or suffering in the same way, and that gives us the strength to confront the challenge before us."

"One of the major temples of Jajavarman Vii - in fact, a temple-monastery -Ta Prohm features a set of concentric galleries with corner towers and gopuras, but with many other additional buildings and enclosures. The complexity of it's layout is increased by its partly col..lapsed state, with trees interlaced among the ruins. According to its stele, which until recently was in situ, the principal divinities of Ta Prohm were installed in1186 to transfer merit to the king's mother.The principal deity, Prajnaparamita, the "Perfection of Wisdom", was carved in her likeness....Ta Prohm's original name was Rajavihara, "the Royal Monastery"....This was the temple chosen by the Ecole Francais d'Extreme-Orient to be left in it's "natural state", as an example of how most of Angkor looked on its discovery in the 19th century. This was an inspired decision, and involved a significant amount of work to prevent further collapse and enough clearing of vegetation to allow entry."
