Reverie

 

High up in the mountains
The sound of the river calming me
A place for me to relax and breathe

I can almost hear the river right now
And feel the cool gentle breeze
And the soft melody of the wind playing upon the grasses

One thing I like about photography and going out into Nature
Is my mind stops chattering so much
It gives my mind a vacation

humility

 

“Who has seen the wind? Neither you nor I but when the trees bow down their heads, the wind is passing by.”—Christina Rossetti

“By bringing nature into our lives, we invite humility.”–Richard  Louv

 

“Thank you” is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding. -Alice Walker

“Humility, that low, sweet root, from which all heavenly virtues shoot.”—Thomas Moore

A Song

 

“All life has emptiness at its core; it is the quiet hollow reed through which the wind of God blows and makes the music that is our life.  Without that emptiness, we are clogged and unable to give birth to music, love, or kindness.  All creation springs from emptiness: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form, and void…”

-WayneMuller, “Sabbath, Finding Rest, Renewal, and Delight in Our Busy Lives”, p.51

Giving Thanks for This Moment

This is a ollaborative group collage that some friends and I did for Amma’s Circle of Love Letters….

 

“One moment is eternity;
eternity is the now.
When you see through this one instant,
you see through the one who sees.”

-Wu Men [1183-1260], quoted in “The Enlightened Heart”, edited by Stephen Mitchell

 

May the bird call
be my voice
the wind
be my breath
the rivers
be my blood
the soil
be my skin
the rocks
be my bones
the grasses
be my hair
the branches
be my fingers

May earth spinning
be my dance

Let no part of me
ever be separate again
Let no part of you
be unknown to me
Earth of my body
Body of the Earth

-Karen Zeiders
