the more i want the less i want the more i want

  1. Hmmm????? I'm sated when I open my eyes and can see all that is around me, when I can hear nature sing, the oceans roar, the wind blow the rustling about by little terrestrials, when my senses can feel, can smell, can taste, when my heart beats with love; other than this I don't want much. :-)

  3. every day i try to find something i can give away, the simpler life is, the less i have, the more i grow in my garden, the lighter my step. this photo, it makes me inhale a bit deeper, exhale a bit more quietly.

  7. Far and near,
    mountains wreathed
    by haze,

    Unfolding
    like a sumi-e painting
    in subtle shades.

    Above and beyond,
    mind is calm
    and clear

    So difficult to express
    to those not seeking
    the Way.


    (Zen Master Daichi-zenji)

    ( i think that the acute awareness of the interplay between "the more and the less" of desire is one of the ways of seeking the Way)

  8. Énigmatique nature, énigmatique photo, énigmatique Erin ...Il faut savoir se perdre pour se retrouver.
    Amicalement.
