Visiting A Meditation Center // Post HF20 To Step Away From The Madness! <Stupa Photography Included>

in art •  14 days ago

After getting Forked hard this past week, I decided to take a much needed rest at a meditation center close to home. This place holds a special place in my heart since I met some of the most amazing spiritual teachers here and learned additional methods of self-care through meditation techniques, Feng Shui, I Ching, and more. As we know, the learning never ends and it just gets more interesting.

Not that long ago I spent three months here volunteering and sharing my life with many who enjoy living their life on the road. Some were very young and I couldn't believe how bright and shiny everyone was, it was truly a blessing to meet such free people.

It had been over two years since I last visited and over the weekend it was like visiting a second home and family. The hiking was good and the company was comforting. Being away from my family at times can cause quite a bit of homesickness, but it's places like these that bring me back to center.

Everything here is surrounded by artistic beauty and brings peaceful moments of calm and a state of well-being.

When I come here HF20 was but a past memory and time stood still. A peaceful moment of being at one with my soul was a release from all the stress.

This may not be the typical place for someone to find peace, but I'm happy to have it close to home. I can just sit anywhere on the 800 acres and be joyous.

If anything that I've learned over the years is to make sure there is always time for self-care and getting away from the mundane everyday hum drum we can find ourselves in m. It is as important as drinking clean water and eating fresh food.

If we can't completely have everything we want (yet), then it's about finding what we can to keep our energy balanced.

Every time I visit a place such as this I find more and more people who see Spirit, give personal life readings, travel the world, and practice mindfulness. It's encouraging to see many who are at least trying, instead of living in front the the television or computer 24/7.

Some of the photos I'm sharing are symbolic of Tibetan culture and every small detail has a special meaning. The small bottles hold mantras and blessings for the entire world and kept close to Buddha.

The trees, plants, and flowers are kept fresh daily out of respect for gods, deities, and teachings.

A person who is comfortable with this surrounding will feel close to heaven, like a cozy warm blanket on a winter day. Simple yet fantastic.

Although the entire land is not filled with this art a nice portion of it is and people from all over the world come to worship, take classes, meditate, and be a part of community life. What could be better than that?

There is always some small tributary to the leaders of the lineage and this Stupa is no less extravagant. I'm still learning a lot about Buddhist, Hindu, and Dao lineages. Overall, I enjoy learning about secret languages and powerful connections to Spirit from different perspectives.

I leave you with the idea that no matter who we are and what religion or belief system we were raised with, why not try learning something new in the way of spiritual growth. Look up a new symbol you may have seen in these photos and trace it back to it's origin. You might be delightfully surprised to find a connection to something deep within.

These photos were taken in the mountains of Colorado, USA. The inspiration was one of peace, meditation, and to share this with the world. Beauty is everywhere ...

Yours,

Looks like a nice place, eerily quiet? I think I am about 5 years overdue on whatever would make me not get agitated with these people here using more than one sentence a day.

Ever strike up a convo with those peeps in the pics? They seem to know a thing or two, but it is a coin flip with quiet people they might have great insight and contemplating their existence on a level I never could, or in the case of the big bones peeps in your pics they might just be thinking real hard about their next meal.

why not try learning something new in the way of spiritual growth.

This is a great tip! !tip ? haha got it

·

its not eerie LOL
like i said its peaceful and serene. you would prob just crack jokes and make fun of people. but then again, that's what i did at first, so i wouldnt feel bad if that did happen.
thank you so much for the tip, you didn't have to do that LOL
the teachers are especially amazing and i love them ... a lot.

I think I just need to come spend a weekend with you LOL. Beside all of these pictures being amazing, it seemed like the thing to do. I actually painted during some of my down time. Everyone asked me if I was angry, that was the vibe they got. Gotta start over, negative art doesn't really sell. Or when it looks like a 2 yr old did it.

I am so glad you got some time to decompress.

·

Hehe ... guess you like the places I go, and that's cool too. :)
painting sounds lovely. angry oh oh LOL
a 2 year old? hey sometimes those are the famous ones ... hehe
hey where are you again? colorado? sorry i talk to so many people.
much love,
eagle spirit
