At Every Corner the Noise of Our Thoughts Intersect

The city series….

Sometimes the noise of our thoughts take us places we can no longer go

Illuminating the intersections of our lives….

When you arrive naturally at a state of meditation, inspired by the View, you can remain there for a long time without any distraction or special effort. There is nothing called “meditation” to protect or sustain, for you are in the natural flow of the wisdom of Rigpa. And you realize when you are in it that is how it has always been, and is. When the wisdom of Rigpa shines, not one shadow of doubt can remain, and a deep, complete understanding arises, effortlessly and directly.

This moment is the moment of awakening. A profound sense of humor wells up from within, and you smile in amusement at how inadequate were all your former concepts and ideas about the nature of mind.  – Rigpa Glimpse of the Day

Sometimes when we are distracted by the noise of our thoughts, we can look within; to the light that illuminates and frees us. Knowing that at every corner, every self examination is the opportunity to renew our perception of the world around us and the thoughts that govern our relationships.  – Walter W Smith

    • Thanks Nandini, sometimes the art is all in the flow; or the day’s experience; or just the need to express something.

    • I love the soft background; a reflection of the transistory likeness of our thoughts.
