Here are three different shades of the same flower and a picture of a bee on a different kind of flower.

Classic New Mexico Sunset

IMG_4924
The past few years the sangat has been invited to Siri Singh Sahib Ji's ranch in EspaƱola to enjoy an outside kirtan program and langar on the weekend after the summer solstice sadhana camp. Last year there was a beautiful sunset and this year there was one as well.

Mountain Lion

We went for a hike in the Jemez Mountains to some of the hot springs. Before we started our hike we had a picnic and a friend spotted a mountain lion running by. He chased after it and so did I.

(Do you see the lion behind the log on the left)
I chased him for a little while, to get a good picture, but he just kept running further away.

We love God and all of God's servants (all of us :-)

Dreaming

When we awaken from this dream,
reality it will no longer seem.
The attachments that now gleam,
of little value we will deem.
What value remains beyond?
To what treasure should we bond?
The treasure of the sacred Naam,
to the world ocean it brings calm.
That vast ocean which seems impossible to cross,
will be a puddle when we realize there is no loss,
there is only gain in awakening to our soul,
living without separation, by ourselves totally whole.
Liberated while alive, consistently awake,
the Guru's helping hand is there for us to take.

Guess which mountain this is :-)

I flew over this on the way to Sacramento from Albuquerque.

So Darshan Chakra Kriya

In love with the beloved,
I have planted the divine shabad,
to grow in my mind and serve me,
to be Me who is truly also Thee.
If we truly love ourselves we can truly love all,
because we are all, known by the soul's eternal call.
We are called to be not to do,
without effort we are all that is true.
We are truly souls of the divine,
we can honor that and we can shine.
It is a false separation to believe we are not God,
a trapping of the mind that creates this facade.
The trap of ego, which is not subdued,
which devours maya as it's sacred food.
One tenth of my day to repeat your true name,
the rest of the day, for me, you do the same.

Political cartoon

This is my first attempt at a political cartoon. I hope people don't take it too seriously and find it funny.

The rest of my Mt. Taylor photos

The sun came out and we started walking again :-)
DSCF6455
The snow started melting pretty quick and we started warming up as well.

At the top looking at the other side of the mountain, the side we didn't hike up.

He didn't pose for this photo, he was signing the log at the top of the mountain and I snapped the photo.
DSCF6465
We meditated and picnicked at the top. Here we're about to go down again.

Another view from the top.
DSCF6477
The mountains looked kind of like a bowl with a peak in the middle.

Just before we left the top it started to get cold again.

Looking at the path from a little hideout, surrounded by branches.

There was lightening in the distance so we stayed under some rocks for about 20 minutes until the hail/snow passed us.

We were just getting near the rocks, but it soon snowed/hailed much more intensely.

Going Up

One of the main reasons I wanted to hike this peak is that it is a really tall peak relatively alone. There aren't really other tall peaks in the area, so you can see pretty far in all directions.

The rain/snow/hail is approaching :-)
