Advice from a river.
Go with the flow,
immerse yourself in nature,
slow down and meander,
go around the obstacles,
be thoughtful of those downstream,
stay current,
the beauty is in the journey!

I watch him as he ponders my presence,
only a temporary distraction from
the lizard now locked in step 
blinding into the tree bark
disposing of intricate patterns.
Soon the runner disappears 
into some unknown world,
no known direction, dissolving 
into the brink, yet native lands.

What has to be given up is not the I,
as most mystics suppose:
this I is indispensable for any relationship,
including the highest,
which always presupposes an I and You.

Seeking The Tao Of Observation   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon Sunrise II- Art name blogThe Photographer — Image by kenne

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

The photographer (artist)
seeks to connect what
is already connected, the
past, present, and future
in a moment of existence
while being a traveler
in other people’s reality
sharing an awareness 
of the present experience. 

An awareness of the moment
with the whole being, the artist
is of the experience —
the essence of existence.
The artist desires to share
the essence, but the resulting image
is about the experience, not
of the experience — 
the Tao of observation.

In the process
of capturing an event
the photographer feels
and sees in the moment,
the Tao of an event —
the Tao that is projected
is outside the moment
hence is not the
essence of Tao.

The truth is always something that is told,
not something that is known.
If there were no speaking or writing,
there would be no truth about anything. T
here would only be what is.
