The Ahhh of Awe! Above is pictured a Japanese Garden in Portland. The tree is a Japanese Maple. The leaves reach out like lace, creating a sense of inclusion, calm, and balance.
A desire arises in the mind. It is satisfied immediately another comes. In the interval which separates two desires a perfect calm reigns in the mind. It is at this moment freed from all thought, love or hate. Complete peace equally reigns between two mental waves.
