Eternal Quest

quest

 

And then I want to walk down this path

That goes on and on

From my town to the next

Across cities and states

And countries

Oceans and seas

Continents

I want to see faces different from mine

Speak languages I haven’t heard

I want to feel

I want to know

Monument of Peace

When you are in Colorado you are never far away from the mountains and when you are in the mountains you are never far away from God–mountians being closer to heaven, hence God. Or that’s how I’ve always believed and experienced.

So what better place to build a monument for peace and spirituality?

Shambhala mountain center located about 2 hours northwest of Denver is a Buddhist retreat located in a beautiful Colorado Rockies mountain valley where people from all faiths and walks of life gather year around to meditate, contemplate and gain knowledge to better themselves and the lives of those around them. It is also home of the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya upon entering which I encountered a perfect quiet disturbed only by the sound of my own breathing. Perhaps the next time around I can learn to quieten my mind.

The River

(from An Incurable Insanity)

-0-

Meandering eternal

Perennial, over miles and miles

Of barren deserts

Golden fields

And rugged canyon

From a faint trickle to

A booming roar

It contorts, it twists, it rushes

It flows

Moods ever changing

From a pensive calm

To a nurturing warmth

And a restless fury

In constant motion

A persistent quest

For its ocean

Where its spirit can lay to rest
