Space to think…I went up the hill today, early in the morning, while it still felt fresh, before the sun reached its full power. I’ve always wondered what it is about my walks up there that make me feel so alive and energised. Surely I should be more worn out and fatigued after the physical exertion?
As often happens, I had a head full of emotion and it felt a bit stuck.
As I climbed the steep gradient that leads to the north hill I had my usual sense of these emotions being ”loosened up” as my heart beat faster with the exercise.
Then I had a real feeling of expansion as my mind seemed to merge with the vast space of land and sky that becomes visible when reaching a high point on the hill.
And a sort of increased awareness, that brought a certain perspective to my feelings, allowing them to shift in a more positive direction.
This, for me, is a very good example of Other Power.
My immediate environment provided a container for my healing process, and enabled me to have a positive experience with some debilitating psychological pain.
The magic of Nembutsu facilitates these experiences as I continue to look outside of my limited Self for guidance, healing and growth.

You’ve inspired me to get out on a walk… something I don’t do enough… thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you Dayamay to share, very well expressed! Beautiful and good to see how it works with emotions. Impermanence….. I have the same experience, emotions that come and go influenced by environment and fysical actions….and with time and space that take it all away….
