      LES MOINES VOLANTS - By Matthieu Ricard On a bright winter morning, Tibetan and Bhutanese monks jump for joy at the sight of the ocean. They will throw themselves up in the air again this evening, on the stage of a theatre in Brittany, France, defying gravity. This image is not a multiple exposure, but a single shot of seven monks jumping. 1997

      Flying Monks of Tiet by matthieuricard: This image of seven Tibetan and Bhutanese Buddhist monks jumping on the beach in front of the ocean was taken in France, at Dieppe, on a bright winter morning in 1997. This image is an original slide; it is not a multiple exposure and no tricks were employed. It is simply a single exposure of seven monks jumping for joy and, contrary to most viewers’ belief, the image has not been modified in any way.

    Symptoms of Enlightenment ~ I have found this to be quite true for myself and others who are no longer concerned with image or outside forces, but have found the security of the inner knowledge which never fails.

    "The most important aspect of a being on a spiritual path may be to just keep moving." ~Pema Chodron ..*

    “When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into it’s dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment.” ..*

    buddhism explained

    To offer no resistance is to be in a state of grace, ease, and lightness. This state no longer depends upon things being a certain way, good or bad. It seems paradoxical, yet when your dependency on form is gone, the general conditions of your life improve. Conditions or people, that you thought you needed now come without struggle and you are free to enjoy and appreciate them. Things will still pass away, but with dependency gone, there is no longer any fear of loss. Life flows ~Eckhart Tolle
