As a breeze ruffles the surface of a lake and distorts the images reflected therein, so also the Chitta vrtti disturbs the peace of the mind. The still waters of a lake reflect the beauty around it. When the mind is still, the beauty of the Self is seen reflected in it.B.K.S. Iyengar
I took this picture on October 14, 2017. This was the first Hammack Family Reunion that I had been to. It seemed like it was also something that has not happened for many years. This was at Clearlake, Ca. I remember being here once when I was very little maybe 9 or 10 years old.
These little boat houses captured my attention, this one, in particular. There is stood out in the water. No boat to lower down or bring up. It stood high above the water. The wind was light and cast a small ripple on the lake waters. You can almost see the reflection of the boathouse.
It was reminiscent of what I have experienced in my meditation practice. The more I practiced the more I became aware of the stillness that is possible, the reflection of my true self.
