Relax

“The only Zen you find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there.” Robert M. Pirsig

I can’t remember ever feeling more relaxed than at this mountain top.  After a day of hiking and exploring among nature I felt fulfilled.  My body wasn’t sore.  I wasn’t tired.  Sitting in a comfortable Adirondack chair with my feet propped up on a stone wall taking in the view was completely satisfying.

“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” Chinese proverb

I was in no rush to do anything or due to be anywhere.  
I was free to simply be.  
To feed my soul in contemplation,
To feed my eyes with the beauty of nature,
Fill my lungs with fresh air
and do nothing.
Free to do absolutely nothing.
