Here’s my submission for the weekly photo challenge subject Heritage.

I’ve been practicing Buddhist teachings and meditation for the last 10 years or so.  Striving for non-attachment, self awareness and compassion for all sentient beings has changed my life in ways that are difficult to explain.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Sitting at a table in a restaurant I noticed the lighting gave my sunglasses a mirror effect and decided to take this photo with my iPhone.  It seemed like the perfect choice for this week’s photo challenge theme, <a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/reflecting/”>Reflecting</a&gt;.

     Return is the movement of the Tao.
     Yielding is the way of the Tao.

     All things are born of being.
     Being is born of non-being.

From Tao Te Ching: A New English Version by Lao Tzu and Stephen Mitchell

On a recent trip to New York City I visited the Rockefeller Center Observation Deck.  From there you can see most of Manhattan.  It’s a pretty incredible view.
