One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nature/animal related sightings make me fall more and more in love with this puredom.
Illumination:
-Our illuminating footsteps in the sand by algae,
-our faces being lit up in the Australian jungle by thousands of glow-worms!
-feeling endless joy watching the magical Northern lights in Norway!

-I've shed tears witnessing beautiful albatrosses, seals jumping out of the water, dolphins playing around greeting us, and whales diving down ... We should protect these innocent magical treasures!!

A 10 days Silent meditationcourse called 'Vipassana'.
Amazing life-changing opportunity for everyone! Become more peacefull within, more compassionate and loving to yourself and others...FOR FREE! http://www.dhamma.org/
