I spent some time crawling around on the cliff behind my home and retreat. Here is one shot nearer to the base. At this point the cliff gets undercut by the river and so its a 40 foot straight drop to the water.
It was a nice spiritual experience for me. At first scampering down the first 150 feet down.. Our exploration typical starts as a struggle, going against tropical heat, jungle, scree, places requiring trust / instinct to get around and down to. It’s a matter of letting go into the pace.
Boundaries are by definition are a challenge to pass through as they offer resistance between two states of being.
Then it opens up and to discover a wonderful grassy rocky knoll from which it’s possible to take a breather and take it all in… to simply bask in joy of being present in the moment.
At this point: part of the desire is to get down that last 40 feet, But instead it all opens up to just being one with the river.. no matter where one moves and meanders with life.
- The joy is enough to simply be present
Learn it isn’t the destination outside of your life that is the goal. It’s the one inside, being present and aware with life, which forms the first boundary to what many call the light.
Peace in your path as you find your own true steps to enlightenment.
