Seeing Anew And Deeply


See the shimmering and falling leaves of autumn. See anew and deeply. And as the leaves depart, you will see a trace of flights of freedom and acts of obedience, of total surrender and ways of compassion, of ancient prophets and monks, mystics, poets and philosophers. Be intimate with them like a passionate lover. This is one path that leads to a more meaningful life.

    I love how you caught the falling of the leaves, pine needles and shrub with the light. It always happen so fast yet still represents nature’s tranquil beauty. To catch a simple moment in life & give it both words with meaning is true zen art. I’m truly grateful to have meditated to your work. Thank you again.
