Once upon a time a Monkey and her friends climbed Mt. Cheam. They took all their gear to the very top. Once they got settled in for the night, the mushrooms came out. Magic that is, magic it was, only love came forth, what a masterpiece.
“Serve first thy brother. Hurt first thy self rather than thy neighbor. Gain naught from him unbalanced by thy giving. Protect thou the weak with thy strength, for if thou use thy strength against him his weakness will prevail against thee, and thy strength will avail thee naught.”
~from The Divine Iliad
I had the opportunity to test my tolerance to the elements this winter spending a month in a trailer park in the dead of winter. The things I took for granted such as heat, comfort, and running water were soon washed away in an instant. The strongest don’t survive the most adaptable do, I found that in -40 degree weather you have to adapt to your environment and make due with what you have in order to move forward. I found an immense amount of energy and comfort from the sun during this time and tried to represent that with some of these photos. No matter the conditions you are surrounded by it is the state of your being that enables your own light to shine. Try meditating with the sunrise and sunset for 3 days. Choose to be choiceless in the matter of matter and look inward this week because everything you need is already inside.
She looks just like zaboomafooooo!
