Covered 1,000 miles. Colorado. Set up camp under 3 giant pines who stand sentinel over me tonight. A comet streaks across the night sky.

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.

My youngest son, 7, saw neighbor struggling to mow her lawn. He asked to help. What a lovely Father's Day gift- a child who cares about others and doesn't hesitate to lend a hand. We worked together.

Canoeing, hiking, then beach w/fam. Mind remains calm. It waits to be trained. Desire is a function of the mind. Desire peace, liberation. The unbridled mind is like a wild horse, dangerous to ride.

I take comfort knowing that sages throughout time have wrestled w/ego. In the Bhagavad-Gita, Arjuna says: 'The mind is restless & unsteady...to subdue it is more difficult than controlling the wind.'

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

3am wake up. 1h meditation. Mind alert, calm. Concentration stronger. Exploration continues. Even in this state, attention is relaxed and focused. Witnessing moment by moment unfolding.

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?

Love 1

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.

Manda P

Yeah, there is no way I'm skilled enough to do that!

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...
