Huike said to Bodhidharma, “My mind is anxious. Please pacify it.”
Bodhidharma replied, “Bring me your mind, and I will pacify it.”
Huike said, “Although I’ve sought it, I cannot find it.”
“There,” Bodhidharma replied, “I have pacified your mind.”

Photo by @TimLaman. An Anna’s Hummingbird shot recently in a San Diego backyard garden as it came in to feed on nectar at these flowers. Freezing a moment of high action is one of the pleasures of still photography. In this case, a 1/4000 of a second shutter speed helped capture a fleeting #moment. #hummingbird, #sandiego, #nature, #birds, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative, @natgeo, @TimLaman.
Photo by @jonathankingston “…the mountains of the mainland came in full view, gloriously arrayed in snow and ice, some of the largest and most river-like of the glaciers flowing through wide, high-walled valleys like Yosemite, their sources far back and concealed, others in plain sight, from their highest fountains to the level of the sea.” - John Muir Travels in Alaska. When Muir reached Glacier Bay in 1879, the Johns Hopkins glacier, pictured in the background, extended nearly 10 miles past the rocky point in the foreground of the image. #ngexpeditions #alaska #johnmuir #glacierbay #nationalpark #glacier
