Crystals in a Stream

Crystals in the StreamOne of my favorite places in Mexico is a magical little village that is in a valley surrounded by mountains. It is only about an hour south of Mexico City.

When I went there most recently, I was trying to remember a very magical spot. It was a place with a stream running through it and with very old mature trees all along the stream. There are benches there where you can sit and get into a very meditative and contemplative mood.

As I was walking around one day, it finally came back to me, triggered by the familiarity of the road I was on and I found my way to the magical little stream. As I was sitting on the bank, I looked down and noticed a collection of crystals in a depression in the stream bed where the water could flow over them. The stream was cleaning the crystals.

Morning Wabi-Sabi

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs I sit in meditation each morning, occasionally I glance outside the door to my room and there are a number of potted plants there. This one, which has been there for some time has white mineral deposits on its base caused by water evaporation over many years. A wabi-sabi which many would have removed because it is not perfect, but too me it is more than perfect, and seeing it makes my morning meditation complete.
