A zen experience
Two nights ago I attended a Buddhist chant. The setting was a beautiful upper west side apartment and the participants were a group of truly diverse, yet unified, individuals. It was a very interesting and powerful experience. It brought me back to that warm afternoon in Brazil when we visited a natural spring waterfall.
The parallels are endless, both experiences were cleansing, invigorating, and awakening. More than anything they both brought forth a sense of unity or connection. At the chant I realized that we are all made up of those people who "chant" with us. At the waterfall I felt nature's power to support and renew us.
p.s. Who says that we shouldn't go chasing waterfalls? TLC!
