Thoreau ‘s “Walden Pond” … Diana’s “Walden Pond” journal in Thailand
…"to the woods; seek the essential facts of living; suck out the marrow of life; living is so dear; live deeply and sturdily; cut a broad swath of life!”
Rise to consciousness – be present; quiet ourselves to sit quietly; be with nature.
Where is your “Walden Pond?” Perhaps our mat? Training our minds to be here and now; let everything else go; live deliberately.
