Contemplation

We stand and marvel sometimes at the spectacles we find when visiting nature, when sojourning through a land that is ours to frequent and adore and love, but never really become a part of or control…such force and power…an amazing wonder, truly…and the feelings such a sight can evoke…of humility, awe, joy, and even peace, strangely, as we are nearly overcome with the loud and noise of rushing and pounding water on water and rock and earth…and the very core of our souls….

  2. I was watching a documentary yesterday and there was this buddhist trainee monk who was describing the way in his opinion the anxieties of the modern way of living are formed and take over the souls of people and deprive them from joy. It appeared strange to me, how a young man that has merely any idea of how Europe or USA may look on maps, was so right in all his thoughts and estimations about the mindset of the people living there and fugured that this was one more proof that all the people when it comes to basic and primal needs, are more or less similar.
    To become a part of the wonder we call nature, takes giving out all efforts to control and moreover to overcome all distractions when doing so. Not easy, eh…?
    …the buddhist monk indirectly suggested that to achieve joy, as a first step, we should should get rid of our watches 🙂

    • I think the novice monk had an excellent idea…so much of our lives are ordered by what we find on our watches…and it increases our stress and anxiety by it just being there. I find that being out there in nature helps to remove a bit of that…even if just for a while. Thank you, Nikos. 🙂
