Feel free to comment on these blogs. I am discovering that this new form of communication that as been made available allows me to share my journey as it unfolds. Looking back over these blogs since they began last July I can see how they have wandered from here to there in ever increasing awareness of what is immediately present by the side of the path. It started high up in the head and has now come down the slop into the flat lands of every day life. Instead of abstract concepts about a wedding the focus has turned to the beauty of a tea bag steeping in hot water. Instead of conjuring concepts the writing seems to be trying to just stay with experience. Just as a real walk along the path offers us choices: do we get lost in our thoughts and step on the flowers at our feet, or do we forget our thoughts and observe the life around us.
I know someone is sharing this walk with me because 258 new visitors have stopped at this blog in February, and many have come back because it has received over three thousand hits. So I invite you to share your discoveries as we simplify our lives and pay attention to the beauty that surrounds us.
Imagine that each day is a beautiful walk and every moment is a turn in the path. Faces that we meet are flowers, voices speaking to us are song birds, all the commonplace names and forms are intricate patterns of great beauty, and always there is our gentle breath going in and out like a spring breeze. On a day like this one can’t help but smile.
