Why so much dislike for the negative. That's where the "Guts" of things are. Where you dig in and find the underlining problems and hopefully work on them. 

Exactly, dislike or fear of the negative hoping to positive think ones way to peace is not mindfulness, it is insanity and delusion this is being ego bound and the cause of much suffering.

Great point Jay, it is suppression or repression the idea that one can positive think their way out of anxiety or suffering. Like anything else eventually it will fail. 

Hi Sherapy

There are times I had to step away from myself and be objective about what I was observing to make the changes that I wanted to, I guess I have always liked being and observer of both life around me as well as within me.

Going into the abyss showed me a lot of my illusions and delusions as well. All manner of falsehoods. Every bit I've had to work through, even still. So this idea of repress/suppressing all negative emotions is weak to me. Face them, face the feelings. It can take a lot of weight off you.

Negative emotions are in the waters of life that flow around one. One must be still and let the waters flow until the river washes clean.

A zen garden for you. Enjoy.

Thoughts are like waves they come and they go..

The sea, so pleasant when at peace and when angry, so terrible in it's awesome beauty.

Thought is the sea and waves are thoughts and emotions, tossed upon the shores of consciousness.

You wake up in the morning on a sunny day, the smell of salt spray, thick on the breeze, almost electrifying the senses. The sea calls to you and you must answer. With your feet on warm sands, the gulls cry out your name; she's here! she's here!

If anyone cares :P

This is where Tiger Woods flipped his car, he went over the median flipped his car and ended on the other side in the brush. Yellow circles kinda show the path,

 

I live close by and drive this stretch of road to and from work.

He's fortunate to be alive. Something was terribly amiss with him.

This road is downhill it is easy to speed, and not easy to stop, it needs your full attention from about Silver Spur to Palos Verdes Drive North. I have been pulled over and warned for letting the speed get away from me once.

 

The driving in this whole area can get hairy, on the  driving, one needs to know the area well and pay attention, it is ocean cliff side driving, Lots of steep windy hair pin turn roads. But, so beautiful. My uploads today are from our trek today on the ocean hiking trail off Trump Golf Course. 

 

Tiger is lucky it was only him that he was not hit by anyone coming up the hill. It could have been worse that is for sure. A broken leg will heal. 
 

I got a small piece of the car for my good friend who is a huge Tiger fan.

Uhmmm... Tilt your phone orientation 90° clockwise ?

There's two ways a picture is normally framed, portrait and landscape... It's just a matter of how you capture the scene... 

:yes:

The main difference between landscape and portrait image orientation is that a landscape image is wider than it is taller while a portrait image is taller than it is wider. In other words, Landscape images are captured in a horizontal layout while portrait images are captured in a vertical layout.

Great thread Sheri and everyone !  Really enjoying it...I feel like "grasshopper" amoung a group of "masters" :P

. I've meditated on a smaller scale for years and years and years..and from what I've been reading..apparently practicing mindfulness without hardy trying..hehe.  I feel absolutely blessed to have grown up in NATURE.. I think I grew up on 'mindfulness..without hardy trying. ..completely immersed in the natural world most of the time..overflowing with it's beauty and splendor !   I had no need for thoughts much of the time..I was FULL and at peace.    :)

Even though I am an animal guy, long ago, I didn't pay much attention to birds. When I was living near the "triple point" where New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts meet, I used to walk in the area shown in the attached image in the mornings before work. It's a flood control dam, surrounded by forest.

One year, I noticed a broadwing hawk, and she was working her tail feathers off, a single parent feeding her brood. I could see where her nest was, since she was so often back and forth. In my woodsy walks, I avoided the area around her nest, figuring she had enough to worry about without curious apes coming to visit uninvited.

At the end of the season, her mission accomplished and as she was about to head south, she intercepted me one morning while I was walking atop the dam. She came in low and slow, at a right angle to the dam walkway, chest height and maybe two arm-lengths in front of me. She was of course, magnificent.

The fly-by completed, she peeled off into the sky and headed aloft.

I haven't ignored hawks since then.
