BE HERE NOW.

Be Here NOW, in the MOMENT, I realized that, AGAIN, today, as I was walking in the woods, and the fact that I was so involved with my inner me, that I wasn't looking OUTSIDE ME -- so I deliberately looked at the yellow leaves. I looked for red leaves on the ground. And I noticed that the sun was shifting, in an odd way, amongst the trees, very very strange sunlight, geometric shapes in the middle of the forest, a circle of light on the ground, and darker shadows around this grove of trees, I checked this out and yeah, it was sunlight, but almost in a heartbeat it changed, BE HERE NOW, and I realized as I was doing my meditation, here, where I listen to the music, meditate on my photos and yes ALSO do Kegel exercises (hey, got to...), I realized that I wasn't getting OUT OF MY HEAD as I was looking at the photos - I need to practice LOOKING. FOCUS. This was a revelation for me, that I was doing this, during the meditation, i.e., NOT LOOKING... I improved at least, in one a castle is on the other side of the lake you look at the water, you look at the castle, but today I saw that there was a small SEAGULL sitting on a branch in the foreground, first time I saw him, YIPEE... okay, a little bit of freewheeling, the light between the grass blades is vivid, dark and light, shadows and sunlight, the cat struts through the grass, looking for something to ruminate about, she danced in the forest lifting her knees up, the dress falling back from her legs, not much she was prancing around too darn much, snap the fingers raise them high, would a monk dance, the SUFI do in their meditative frenzy the dance where they guide the energy from above down into the earth, the monk walked through the field next to the seminary, monastery, his feet were bare, there was a stone path, and he walked there, deliberately, breathing in and trying to feel each nuance of the cold sharp stones... sunlight like diamonds between the branches high up, tree tops, waving hello to the cosmos...
