Great drive. Colorado and Utah are so dang beautiful to drive through. Always lived in forests or plains, tundra is unique. Safe travels.
Sounds blissful 🌲⛺️
Sounds like you appreciate the beauty of nature Metron.
Sounds lovely. I hope to make it out that way someday.
Found bivvy sack.
Looked it up. Sleeping bag. Sleep well.
Thanks, John. A bivvy sack is a minimal shelter, like a cocoon. I keep my sleeping bag inside the bivvy. It's light, easy to set up and inconspicuous.
Ahhhhh I learn something everyday.
Well I learned something new today.
Have a good trip!
I am indeed! Wish it wasn't a Monday, my Mondays are usually really bad, or I'd offer to meet you for lunch!
That would be cool.
Whoa! That's a big trip. Sounds fun!
Happy father's day, Love!
Love that... from which your very being springs.
Mine is still way, way, WAY too dangerous.
You can train it. Remain determined and patient. It takes time.
Thanks, Love. I'm putting in the most effort I've ever given into trying to become better. It's really hard but when I see even a flicker of progress, I feel proud & want to keep going.
The Gita was penned in ancient India, a culture that celebrated self-knowledge. How much more difficult is the quest during such a materialistic age. Yet, here I stand on the same path as the seekers of old
I really like that quote, so much of the world is changing, at times it's hard to keep up
The world is in confusion- all paths lead to nowhere.
Everything is a mess. 😢
How do you possibly get up that early to meditate and not fall asleep during it? I have trouble meditating a short time in the morning because I almost drift off.
My body decided on 3 am, I would've preferred 6, but I rolled with it.
I guess when you're awake, you're awake. My dog often decides on 3 am, but I discourage it!
I can only meditate at 3AM if I'm manic. I'm super impressed you can do that! Also, I've never even tried to meditate a full hour. Maybe I should give it a shot?
Only if you feel inclined to do so. 20 minutes is good to bring the mind to a state of balance. After 45 minutes, the mind sometimes becomes restless. I train to decrease reactivity and deliberately invite discomfort to work through it.
Yeah, there is no way I'm skilled enough to do that!
Wow, so cool. My sister did the full A Trail. I'd like to hike parts of it. Enjoy your adventure!
Wow! That's quite a feet. har har. Shes awesome. I'd love to hike it someday. Sounds like you and your sister are both hardcore.
Do you have a trail name picked out? Gotta have a trail name if you're hiking the trail. I forget my sister's, but her husband's was Dingle Berry (play off his last name). I could never think of one for me if I did it...
My trail name would be prabhabuddhshaktisatyapremananda.
'panda' for short? Maybe buddha panda? :)
That was actually the abridged version of my trail name. it was swamiguruprabhabuddshaktimunisatyapremanandaji.
Woo hoo! Where abouts in NY are you? Probably not too far from me atm. I will likely run in the rain after work.
Greenwood Lake, NY
That's barely upstate. We think of that area as downstate. Ha!
Anything outside of NYC is country to me. hehe
I have always pictured you as a stallion :)
Impressive picture :)
Whoa! I just read this again & that sounds like some mega cool stuff!
