BE WITH BEAUTY


Turn this picture into an Emotional Fitness Exercise.  As you look at it : Breathe in, focus, hold, focus some more, think about what matters, breathe out, say “Ahhhhh” and “Thank You.” 

ROCKS ROCKING WITH FLOWERS

Doing a rocks and flower theme.  These were taken near the summit of Mount Evans in CO in July.  Still patches of snow that year and it was not the heavy snow year this has been.   High altitude and harsh weather produce small and hardy flowers.  What doesn’t take all your strength, lets you move ahead and bloom.

Being With Beauty is one of my  Twelve Daily Exercises that add good feelings to your life.  Too often life is so much struggle, we forget to do  the small things that can make a difference.

A new Be With Beauty picture is posted every weekday.  I take many, but also want others to become Be With Beauty Photographers.  Any one interested in sharing their pictures should contact EFTI at Emotfit@live.com  Pictures you want posted can be sent to that address in  jpg or gif format.  Given permission I can also harvest pictures from your Facebook, Picasa, or Kodax accounts.  If you give me that permissio or send me a picture, you should  include  a note stating how you want to be recognized.

Not all pictures will be accepted.  Nature pictures, Pictures reflecting the Weekly Photo Challenge Topic are most acceptable, but also looking for Uncommon Beauty Pictures.

Thich Nan Hahn’s tells us “The rose is in the garbage, the garbage is in the rose.”  As the link shows he was thinking about our tendency to think in dualities–a habit that is very limiting and part of the human tendency to make things simple or worse to divide people into categories.  The purpose of my Be With Beauty Exercise is to have you exercise the ability to find  beauty in uncommon places.   Beauty soothes.
