Nature Doesn’t Care About Our Stories….

In the second week of our camping vacation, now at a cafe with wifi at the Grand Canyon.

Needless to say, perhaps, but then I forget it all the time, so perhaps needful to say.

We get so caught up in our concerns, our “stories,” our struggles about so many things that have only a psychological reality, but little or no basis in the physical world….So it’s good to get out in nature, where the plants and animals are just living moment-to-moment.  No, we can’t live lives that simple and still be human, but it’s nice to be reminded once in a while of the basic, simple side of life…..

The story of mindfulness at ITP continues with my next post – sometime in the next few weeks….

  1. I find being outside in nature such a comfort. The chipmunks in the park don’t care if I’m different. But they do appreciate the peanuts. So peace of mind only costs peanuts these days.

    I went through some testing in a lab this week to see what makes me tick. I’m still trying to get used to the fact that now there is evidence that at least some of my experiences are real. Machines can detect and record some of what I see and do. PK isn’t just my imagination. It’s real. I still don’t know what to think about all of this. I wanted to be normal, but now I know that I’m not and nothing will change that.

    I’m so grateful for chipmunks right now. They couldn’t care less about pk.
