hey hello

capers

heart

getting back from silence and i still have very few words to outer. but i will share this quote from william blake instead:

‘to see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower

to hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour’

i might get back to you on thoughts and feelings from the vipassana at another stage. love and hugs so long.

Oh, I love that line,
dear Sara.
I have this on a postcard at my wall.

First I've feared that after your meditation in stillness this blogworld seems to be trivial to you... but it is in our own hand... in our own mind what we create. And now I'm very happy to find you here, my dear friend, easygoing and in-depth as always.

Big hugs
and LOVE
Ariane

... 'as always' means including transformation,
of course.

I am gladdened to know you are alive and well thinking :-)

Beautiful saying and imagery to match.

Välkommen tillbaka. Jag vilar i dina ord idag. Och ser fram emot om du har lust att dela din vipassana. Annars är det bra ändå. Stor stor kram

Beautiful thought-that's how life should be lived and in vipassana you learn to silence your mind so I feel that in silence, when we calm down our mind, we can "see a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower and hold infinity in the palm of our hand, and eternity in an hour".

igår var jag och badade i sjön, ser fram emot att vara där med dig, cykla, dela en silviakaka och helst bada naken :)

just take your time dear sara! i remember how i felt after only one weekend in silence, i didn't want to talk at all and everything felt golden and i nearly couldn't stand someone asking for something super trivial like marmalade;)... xxx, julia

så himla bra för dig, det unnar jag dig verkligen, lite stillhet, tysthet..bara varandet! och det tycks ha varit fint, du ordkonstnär som alltid hittar rätt - var är alla underbara deviser på väggarna här uppe i norr. kanske jag skulle skriva några. jag fick ofrivilligt ta det lugnt jag med...skar mig djupt in i tummen efter en dags toomuchgardening. det var bra...aaaooommm..

kramar om, Lycke

Helena said...

Hoppas du får en fantastisk sommar - i stillhet och i rörelse, i tystnad och i pratsurr! Har semester och njuter av att kika in på din blogg. Älskar det andra fotot, it's not perfect but it's all yours - precis så! jag kanske tar mig i kragen och bloggar lite i sommar! Vem vet! Ta hand om dej! Stora kramar <3

Anki said...

Fijn dat je er weer bent, met je prachtige foto's! Liefs!

ariane, hey dear, in some ways it made me and still makes me think about blogging. not cause it is trivial, but because it is spending a lot of time on something which is not really reality. or it takse away your attention from reality. distracts you. but here i am! still! love, hugs

geoffrey, :) me too! hey!

annika, vilar later bra. stora kramar till dig

la dolce vita, indeed. i guess that is how it goes. but we can do it also without vipassana i believe.

jenny, ah vad harligt! ar det sommar i luften? ar du ledig? helst bada naken, absolut! mysigt! kramar

julia, hihhi! it is also the very clear experience of realizing how much energy goes when we are talking, and how challenging it becomes to stay centered.
xx.

patrice, ja heel langzam. vooral omdat het zo snel gaat hier 'buiten' in het gewoone leven. hoe is je zomer? liefs

barbara, many hearts and hugs back!

lycke, tankte detsamma, hanga visdomsord pa vaggarna, overallt, sa det ar det forsta man ser vart en man vander blicken. ta hand om tummen! stora kramar

helena, det vore sa roligt om du kom tillbaka till bloggndet, jag som ar utanfor instagram klubben :( saknar dig! njut av sommarlov! kramar

anki, ♥ dankje!

Mooie quotes! En wat goed zeg, een week stilte. Ik durf dat niet aan geloof ik...

martita said...

dear sarita. ah! vipassana. this I know, though I never practised it. I have always been really interested in meditation, but my attempts to do it have failed always in the chaos of live in madrid. it is something I really want to do, soon. I'm really interested and would love to hear about your retreat, whenever you feel like it.
muchos muchos besos

anna said...

åh, hjärtat åker rakt upp på min önskelista... puss hörs senare

Anne said...
