The Miracle of a Quiet Mind...

Rutilated Quartz at sunset

Three nights last weekend were spent sleeping on the earth,
off grid and immersed in nature.
For 24 hours I was alone, in one spot, fasting.
No distractions, just me in creation.
I was amazed to notice the utter ridiculousness 
of the minds dialog with itself.

The mind creates scenarios that will never happen,
so it can figure out what to do 
if by any stretch of the imagination it does happen... 
Acted out It could be a comedy routine, 
but in the moment it just feels tiresome and not funny.

Freedom is quieting the mind...

To stay rooted as that which experiences the mind and the body 
but doesn't identifying as them.

When identifying as this in-dweller  
all of creation is simply glorious.

A complete miracle.

Every relationship gift,
every breath simply astonishing.
