See The World Anew

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2

“Deluded people don’t realize that their own mind is the buddha. They keep searching outside. Don’t indulge in such illusions. Just know your mind. Beyond your mind there’s no other buddha. The sutras say, ‘Everything that has form is an illusion.’ They also say, ‘Wherever you are, there’s buddha.”

“The image of God is found essentially and personally in all mankind. Each possesses it whole, entire and undivided, and all together not more than one alone. In this way we are all one, intimately united in our eternal image, which is the image of God and the source in us of all our life.”

—   John of Ruysbroeck

Shah-i-Zinda (Uzbek: Shohizinda; Persian: شاه زنده‎, meaning “the living king”) is a necropolis in the north-eastern part of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.
The Shah-i-Zinda ensemble includes mausoleums and other ritual buildings of 9-14th and 19th centuries. Shah-i-Zinda was formed over nine centuries (from 11th to 19th) and now includes more than 20 buildings. Like most other monumental structures in Samarkand Shah-i-Zinda’s architectural style is also Timurid.
The name Shah-i-Zinda is connected with the legend that Kusam ibn Abbas, the cousin of the prophet of Muhammed was buried there. He came to Samarkand with the Arabian invasion in the 7th century. Popular legends speak that he was beheaded for his faith, but he took his head and went into a deep well (Garden of Paradise) where he is still living now.

“We don’t eliminate racism by pretending it doesn’t exist. Evil flourishes in the dark. You kill evil by dragging it out into the light, putting it under a lamp, and interrogating it.”
