A long intricate path of rocks led to jumps and crawlsing but  a great spot for some pictures was the end result

Nothing like being off the water and getting a great dose of sunshine.

When meditating the sounds/vibrations around you are more intense. Things that are far away may feel much closer than they really are.

Keeping balance on the rocks was a challenge but It gave me a new way to adjust.

30 seconds of wisdom

A carpenter and his apprentices were travelling through the province of Qi in search of building materials.
They saw a giant tree; five men all holding hands could not encompass its girth, and its crown reached almost to the clouds.

‘Let’s not waste our time with this tree,’ said the master carpenter.
‘It would take us for ever to cut it down. If we wanted to make a ship out of that heavy trunk, the ship would sink. If we tried to use it to build a roof, the walls would have to be specially reinforced.’

The group continued on its way. One of the apprentices remarked:

‘Such a big tree and no use to anyone!’

‘That’s where you’re wrong,’ said the master carpenter. ‘The tree was true to its own destiny.
“If it had been like all the others, we would have cut it down. But because it had the courage to be different, it will remain alive and strong for a long time yet.”

Book Select: The Fifth Mountain

This is one of the books I am currently thumbing through. It was passed on to me by my father.  I began reading it yesterday, Im about half way through and it is very fascinating. The first book I read by this author was The Alchemist which was very deep. The author Paulo Coelho has a way of painting scenes using his characters emotion for paint, but leaving space on the canvas for you to draw your own conclusions and insights. I will leave a few quotes from the book below. Grab a copy or score a download!

“There are moments when troubles enter our lives and we can do nothing to avoid them.
But they are there for a reason. Only when we have overcome them will we understand why they were there.”

“If you have a past with which you feel dissatisfied, then forget it, now. Imagine a new story for your life and believe in it. Focus only on the moments when you achieved what you desired, and that strength will help you to get what you want.”

“Stop thinking about life and choose to live it”

“This was freedom; to feel what the heart desired with no thought to the opinion of the rest… She was free, for love liberates.”

“All life battles teach us something, even those we lose”
