ooh :lol: I guessed this was Delphi from the thumbnail and the title, nice capture! Personally the site was rather bland so it's nice to see a different angle on it.

Befeore I visit Delphi I was complaining that al the photographer are taking the same photographs from the same angles. And promised my self to find some other way to capture it. First I faced my vertigo problem because it is located on a hill on the mountain. And secondy All the ruins of the temples are surrounded by some ropes and it is for bidden to enter. So every one having the same compositions ıon their photography. That's why I decided to use my fisheye lens...So hahpy that you explore it. It was the middle of the world according to me also :D

I AM TOTALLY TOUCHED BY THE HONOR OF BEING A CITIZEN OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY...I came here to ask about my future and Pythia gave me some advices...:nod:

So happy to breathe at the center of the world( Dephi ). So happy to have a few hours at cultural capital of the world ( Athens)

What did the Oracle tell you. I decided I do not really want to know about my future. I want to feel that I can manifest what seems appropriate... and I do not want any bad news! Wink. I do not even open my fortune cookies any longer! (I make hubby open them, and do not consider what is inside as mine... unless it is good!) Lol.

Indeed!

I cannot imagine dear, sweet, kind Ayhan being too sinful. Perhaps you are too hard on yourself. I am hard on myself too, and there are definitely things I wish I had done differently, different choices I had made, etc. Sometimes (maybe even often?) I am a bit of the self-absorbed artist type. Sometimes I am very hard on myself concerning these. I do not know if you consider yourself as having "sinned" for this reason, but I think when I judge myself it is often for those reasons. I also am quite experimental, trying all sorts of things and ways of living/being, and perhaps I am sinful in this regard (since I do not always stick to the traditional view of the "straight and narrow).

I keep thinking that if I knew in past what I know now, that I would have behaved differently and made very different choices. I think that life is very hard because we have to go through it without knowledge of who we really are, why we came here to earth, etc. We cross the "River of Forgetting" before we are born, and have to sort of thrash about here on earth without the knowledge that angels have and those in the other world. Sometimes I am upset with God (or Gods) and think that it is cruel that we must go through our lives sort of blind.

I think I may turn my response to you into a deviation...

Sending much love to my friend Ayhan,

Merton :)

Perhaps we would not be ourselves without all our experiences and mistakes (or sins as we might call them). I don't know... but I do often wish, as I said, that I knew when I was young what I know now. It is hard to be happy, I think... and maybe traditional religion (such as Christianity) would say that this is not the goal (we are supposed to suffer, work our fingers to the bone, die and become a saint! Arggg).

But surely this is not God's goal for us... can it be? Surely God is not that cruel. I heard a prophecy show on radio last night (I should not have listened) saying that God is very mad at us and is going, soon, to judge the world, especially the USA. Surely God is not that cruel. Surely God intends for us to find ourselves, know ourselves, forgive ourselves- and be happy!

First of all; I have to thank you to write me those dense text to say not judge meyself...
Please believe me when I said I am not thinking I am a sinnerfor myself! because I did not arrange to tolerance of being an innocent man or a limitage for beinbg a sinful creature. What is sin my dear Merton? I heard Muslim God said "Every excessive feeling is a source of sin..." Is it? If I love a person then I will be a potential sinner, ha? What must be the limit of loving a human?...Or sex; what must be the normal way of having sex* or who will decide about it. years before I went to a doctor. He gave me some advice about not to push my limits and keep my heart beats, because I had some cardiological problems...He said "wild sex" is forbidden...I am asking you again; what is "wild sex"? Are we having a decision while we are having pre-perations of having sex that we are going to have a wild sex or a domestic one?..DSO those things are are so relative. We must arrange ourselves according to the ethic conditions and maybe we have to keep an eye to medcail conditions too...And all this conditions must be arranged and inspected by us as an modern adults...So must have our oprincipals before we are going to be obeyed by a religious. I never heard a thişng is for bidden in a realigion but it is allowed by another. general rulse are so...There will be little differences but general rules are mostly the same...
I am thinking as a sinner not by me myself but by others maybe because of I am having some Sodomic choices. (I am not sorry for that at all. I am relly very serious and honest when I am saying so)I will select to do it with some people again if I begin my life from the beginning. So I did what I didi and still doing some silly things maybe. But I am not feeling guilty...

I said"Apollo will forgive my sins.." yes I am sure he can... Becasue I did not do some bad things to harm the people but if I harmed some of them it is not because of my intention to do it.
Many people made me feel so sorry.I never run after some rewanges.
I did't steal or assault anybody while they are contiuing to harm me. I said lies to protect myself or my beloved people. I did not keeep my promises not because I don't wat to but Because I have not opportunities to do so.. .
And finally I am not expecting an immortal life at heaven. Soemthing between heaven and hell can be alright fıor me if there si another world after dieying...
Please keep my confession confidental and hide this comment dear Merton. It is only for you. ı will tell many things but I don't want to boder you very much. Thank you for being so close to me :D

Dear Ayhan,

I will note you now and respond in private. This comment trail is on your deviation, so I cannot hide it. If you wish, you may hide your comment above, but I don't think I am able to do that, do to the way DA is set up.

It was a place of wonder. Unesco count it in the a place as under protection because it is named as "World Cultural Heritage" in high level. But the sunshine is so harsh and the weather is very hot. They forbid to enter some places. So I am very limited to have good photographs. That's why I try to use fisheye lens...
So happy that find it original enough...:sun:

The sunlight so harsh and they don't let us into some place. It limits you to take some photographs from wellknown angles. I wasa complianing about them. Becasue they are all the same...That's why I tried to capture it in a different way and decided to use my fisheye lens :D
