Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves
backpacking & skydiving & meditation (Vipassana)
I'm not sure, but I think somebody mentioned Peru. It seems a likely guess with the pinnacles and cliffs and terraces.
I'm with you about the backpack. The further I get from the trail head, the closer to paradise I feel. Even the memories of the throbbing machines and pulsing electricity begin to fade and my senses return to being sensitive.
Again I can hear the truth that is obliterated by the surge for power.
This place in my spirit is the blessing of my life.
