Have you ever hugged a tree? Hug a tree and one day you will
realize that you have not only embraced the tree, but also
the tree embraced you.
Then for the first time, you will be able to know that the
tree is not only the form, which is not only one type of specimen
which botanists talk about.
It is an unknown god, and green in your garden, so full of
flowers in your garden, so close to you, signaling, calling
you again and again.
An 'experience' is something that can be transcribed to a notebook
or capture on film and pasted into an album.
Experience is the sense of wonder in itself, the thrill of
communion, the gentle touch of our connection with everything
The woman, in this card, not only touches the tree,she is in
communion with it, she has almost become one with it.
It is an old tree that has seen many hard times.
She gently touches with reverence, and white inside her cloak
reflects the purity of her heart.
She is humble, simple and this is the way to get close to nature.
Nature does not create a drummers breaks through when it is
flowering , not singing when the trees drop their leaves in
However, when we approach it with the proper spirit, it shares
with us many secrets.
If you have not heard nature whispering lately, it's a good
time to give it a chance.
Have you ever experience the disappearance of the night? Very
few people are even aware of things that happen every day.
Have you ever seen the arrival of the evening? midnight with
its song? sunrise and its beauty?
We behave almost as blind.
In such a beautiful world we live in small holes, small pits
of our own miseries.
It is known to us, so if someone tries to take us out from there
You do not want to be out of your misery, your misery.
There is so much joy around, you just have to be aware of it
and become a participant, not a spectator.
The philosophy is speculation, Zen is participation.
Participate in the night to be, get involved in the coming
evening, participate with the stars, the clouds, become involved
in your lifestyle and all existence will become a joy, an ecstasy.
You could never have imagined, could never have dreamed of
a better world.
Each figure in this mandala is the left hand up, poised to receive,
and the right hand down in an attitude of giving.
The whole circle creates a tremendous energy field that takes
the form of a double dorje, the Tibetan symbol of thunder.
The mandala has a quality similar to the energy field that forms
around a Buddha, where all individuals are part of the circle
made a unique contribution to create a unified whole and vital.
It's like a flower whose whole is even more beautiful than
the sum of its parts, and also enhance the beauty of each petal
Have an opportunity to participate with others now in order
to contribute in creating something bigger and more beautiful
than each could do separately.
Your participation not only nourish you but also help with
something precious to the whole.
At every moment there is a possibility of being total.
Whatever you do, do it so deeply that the mind does not think
of anything, it's just there ,only a presence.
And more and more of total will come.the taste of this will
give you more and more ability to become total.
Try to look at times when you are not total.
These are the moments that you have to pill out little by little.
When you are not total, whenever that's in your head, thinking,
calculating, thinking, using your wits, you are not total.
Little by little, slide away from these moments.
It is just an old habit.
Habits hardly dies.but surely disappear, if you persist, they
