We all have Buddha Nature but did you know that nature also has Buddha? (Sorry, I don't know how to reduce the size of my photos)
The unfolding mind.

A photo of me meditating next to the dislodged head of a Buddha statue (you can see the curly hair and the topknot)

    The nuns are cleaning up after a natural disaster (me) accidentally stepped on their monastery.

    The Enlightened One, Lord Buddha, the Monarch of all samsara was kind enough to make his presence known to me today.

    Whereas when we carelessly presume to bend nature to our will, and impose monstrous and incongruous, ugly, defacing structures upon her beautiful countenance, we do so in such a mean, hurried and inexpert manner, that we remain horrified, astonished and aghast, when they collapse without apparent reason. But reason, there is. And the reason is that we hurry to appease the money gods, cut corners, use inferior material and inexperienced workers. Nature takes her time, does things "per bene", uses the best available materials and everyone is perfectly in command of the appointed task.

    I am green.

    It is a constant (thus far). Nature amazes me as it has its own language and teaching. Everything around us is an expression of its inner nature. Just as we are a projection of aspects of our delusion/buddha nature mix ...
