The quieter you become, the more you hear.
Visiting a Zen temple was one of my most surreal experiences. Open the picture on a big screen and imagine yourself in front of the place. There is no disturbance, no sound. Even the water is still, only kissed occasionally by the gentle breeze, reminding us that the place is alive and full of life. The longer I stare at the picture, the more I get pulled into it. I think I may have left a part of my soul back at the place.
