Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass.

This is a sale in which the warehouse is open to the public - normally only vendors who buy and sell to the public are allowed to purchase from the warehouse.

As soon as the details are completed we'll announce the date.

You might also check daily the http://www.blenkoglass.com/ website for updates and for photos of the current stock.

“To be beyond sorrow is to love. Sorrow is the loneliness of the empty mind that has build a wall around itself, the wall of resistance & anxiety. It's the loneliness that breeds sorrow; the sympathy, the consideration which this loneliness offers is the action of escape. In itself it's poor, and out of poverty, there's not a new thing. And love is a new thing and sorrow cannot meet it. Sorrow seeks refuge, an escape, the comfort of words and ashes are not love. Love is dangerous, destructive and words are comforting. And sorrow continues like the weed in the garden; it flourishes and builds temples, churches and tyrannies. To face every fact, not with words & conclusions, to see without thought & so without feeling, to see it without distortion brings about that energy which is essential to meet every movement of life.”

In 62 who was the designer at Blenko? Interesting all this energy in Calif and WV - creative energy. Blenko was never better than in the 60s.

Question : "Is marriage a bar to spiritual progress?"
Ramana Maharshi : "The householder's life is not a bar, but the householder must do his utmost to practise self-control. If a man has a strong desire for the higher life then the sex tendency will subside. When the mind is destroyed, the other desires are destroyed also."

This agrees with Krishnamurti's statement above, but exhorts the discerning aspirant to reach out to those that love them, without the thought that this would disrupt their spiritual progress.
