Tree of Life on Flickr.
The life of the spirit extends all around us, binding together what seems to be a separate, confused loneliness into joyous union.
When we see the union, we feel the joy, though our thoughts tend to obscure this with their local, fleeting concerns.
Reach beyond the ego, to realise the light of truth!
In this tree, the kami, or god/spirit of the shrine, is held to reside. It is probably centuries old.
Like other photos here, some of you may have seen the Instagram version, which is of course cropped to fit the 1x1 format there. This is the original.
Where there is matter there is geometry
There is a reason!!!!
The beauty to be found in nature.

Life brings us onwards and upwards, ascending to greater heights as we have new experiences, overcome challenges and appreciate ever-greater things.
Yet despite the sense of ascending upwards, in reality we are really moving inwards, returning in great stages to our home with God.

Sometimes nature’s beauty takes my breath away. Who could have created such beautiful art, or the incredible means to appreciate it?

Zen Garden on Flickr.
Whilst Japan’s Samurai warriors have faded away, these delicate gardens are peacefully tended, year after year.
By being vulnerable, they are always reborn.
By yielding to all, they are infinitely strong. Love’s power is stronger than anything else. Truly the meek inherit the Earth.

When we only think of the possible, we live in the past. Even this very moment is the beginning of the impossible, the never before been seen.
