  • Der #peytolake - wahrscheinlich einer der meist fotografiertesten Seen in den #rockymountains. Das türkisfarbende Juwel des #icefieldparkway muss man gesehen haben. Am besten man lässt die Touristenströme links liegen und wandert weiter bergauf. Dort teilt man diese sagenhafte Aussicht nur mit ein paar kleinen Streifenhörnchen. Im nächsten Jahr allerdings, bleibt die Zufahrt zum See wegen Bauarbeiten geschlossen.

  • As I increase my mindfulness practice I am able to remove myself from the burden of being trapped in the “thinking mind” more and more often. 
Isn’t it sad how us humans can spend most or all of our lives trying to silence that thinking mind because it is unhappy with everything? So we need to make it happy and then it will FINALLY shut up! .....right.......? Our entire existence, in fact, revolves around making that thinking mind happy! But wait... have you noticed that once it is satisfied with one thing then it moves on to search for another thing that it is not satisfied with? Another thing that is “not fair” or “not the way I want/like it” or “this would be better if...”?
For example... how long does it stay quiet and happy when you FINALLY get to Friday after work”.... well, at the absolute longest, two days until it hits Monday. But odds are on the way home from work it was displeased about the traffic because you just want to get home. 😂. So.. it was satisfied for a total of 3 minutes... if you’re lucky. 
Well friends. I’ve learned that there is a life outside that little voice in our heads telling us “it’s too cold out” or “just make it 2 more days until the weekend” or “I am happy or mad” or “there’s too much traffic”.
This life if happening all around us, but we are too focused on that “thinking” mind (AKA what we often think of as “me”) to notice. While we spend our whole lives trying to make that thinking mind happy (or make “ourselves” happy is how most of us see it), we miss the entire point. The peace lies outside that little voice in our brains. Nothing we ever do or say will ever make it stay at peace (or shut it up permanently). Does anyone understand what I am talking about? 
Also, if this sparks your interest but you do not quite understand, please message me and ask questions. 
And no I’m not in Banff right now.... I wish. 
Happy Saturday!

  • Woke up on the downhill side of my twenties this morning. Totally fine, not panicking at all 😬 But for real, feeling good. Grateful for every year, for every stage in life, upper twenties included 😊
