“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”  – Ansel Adams

So. How is life treating you in this convoluted waking nightmare called reality these days? Are you troubled? Tired of dealing? Feeling insecure and strangely discontented? Ready to give up and take a four year nap?

Yeah. Well, here’s the thing.

It is always important to keep doing what must be done to change the “what is.” However, while you go through the storm do not forget about the Law Of Detachment. It’s not all scary. There is wisdom, and freedom in uncertainty. When we step into the field of the unknown we break the chains of the past. We lose our attachment to what was, what is, and what will be when we detach. Then we enter a whole new realm of possibility.

Be the observer. Remain a few steps behind the action. Do not get caught up in drama and extended periods of negativity. The facts are troubling enough.

Look at what is before you as you would if you were taking a photograph.

Step back.

Line up the shot.

Frame your subject.

This usually means you center the action or subject in fair context with whatever else is in the picture. Careful with the lighting. Filter it. Tone it down. Overexposure is undesirable. Be still so the picture won’t be blurry and out of focus. Serious subjects require humor. Smile, laugh, and snap the photo.

Life is not a still life portrait. It’s a group shot filled with action. Lots of people in your birds eye view. You don’t have to do all the heavy lifting yourself. Stagger your energy so you won’t burn out for the long haul. Let other people contribute to the bigger picture as well.

It is true.

What you Resist will Persist.

But what persists will eventually stop pushing back and give in if what you are resisting is darkness. Because what does darkness really want? Darkness wants what we all want. The Light.

Keep on keeping on.

Sending Love, Light and Oceans of Bliss.
