A tree above tree line
Since every occasion is an opportunity to expand mindfulness awareness, so it happened that being at the top of Mt. Washington last week was no exception.
The perspective changed, of course, with elevation gain. The trappings of civilization fell away until I was able to focus attention only on rocks, wind, air, sky. I thought of “gaining elevation”, moving through mindfulness, and arriving at simpler states of mind.
Try this practice, especially if it’s been a busy chaotic day.
