country snow... It's photos like these that really makes me miss the ranch I lived on when I was young in Southern Oregon. We didn't get snow every year --and rarely at Christmas-- but scenes like these have left an indelible impression on my precious memories of that time.
"... stillness can really accompany a lot of the movement-type practices. One of my favorite passages from one of my Chinese Ch'an teachers reminds us of this principle: "Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream. Have faith in its course ... It will take you there." This idea of being soft in your practice.., this relates to the capacity to be soft in the subtle body. " ~Tias Little
