In the Woods

January 3, 2013 § 29 Comments

Today in the woods- deep snow, air so cold and sharp it tingled.  Finding  a sliver of bright sun, beneath the sky of infinite blue, I felt the sun’s warmth on my face.  Standing there, I allowed the spirit of the trees and the sun and that sky that went on forever to come upon me.

How is it that I could be given such a moment?  A moment of peace beyond peace.

And then I know.  That moment belonged to me because I belonged to it.  In that moment, no sense of time, no duality, no thinking.  Just being.

The simple magic of pure existence.
