Sunday meditation

I’m going deep into the forest

Walking the rainbow colored trails

To find the center

Where the old grandmothers and grandfathers live.

See you again soon, after I venture out from the other side.

Meditation is not the pursuit of an invisible path leading to some imagined bliss. Β The meditative mind is seeing — watching, listening, without the word, without comment, without opinion — attentive to the movement of life in all its relationships throughout the day.

~ Jiddu Krishnamurti

  1. Rainbow colored trails. Fabulous. That tree is stunning.

      The photo doesn’t do it justice, Colleen. It’s an incredible tree. I couldn’t capture it well, but it almost looks like it’s giving birth to other trees from the center of itself. Amazing.

    I spent the past two days in the woods at Lincoln Trail State Park in Indiana, then drove through them on back roads today Simply awesome, as are your photos.

    Thank you for taking me along. I am pretty much a city person but you can tell by the view from the back deck of my condo that I am always attached to the woods. It borders on part of the Portland Trails. This is about a mile from my house in the middle of the city.

    What a great time of year to be in the bogs and outside with a camera. We have a busy month ahead, but I’m going to try my hardest to get outside with my camera.

    • Robin says:

      This is, in my opinion, the best time to be out and about with a camera, Christine. It won’t last much longer. Looks as though we have another week or so before all the leaves come down (unless we get a big wind sooner than that).

  12. Joanne says:

    There is such beauty in your forest Robin. πŸ™‚

  13. Great phrase “rainbow colored trails” – and the fern shot: such a crown!
