“to a mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” – Lao Tzu

photo of the milky way galaxy captured at Colorado Bend State Park in Texas on 10.09.2018

… and wow did the universe surrender.  after a fierce force of mother Nature in the shape of a thunderstorm in a tent Tuesday afternoon (lightning as close as 2 miles), we were than rewarded that evening by Nature with this magnificent display intricate detail and purpose.  like a rip in the sky which we share with our ancestors…. that brings up my frequency and vibrations… a feeling of delight as I observe outer-space before my eyes and share in the otherworldly experience of the Milky Way.
