Today's obsession into total surrender came from an unexpected place... ROCK BALANCING.
It somehow soothes my soul and challenges my mind. When asked HOW he creates these stunning sculptures (that I secretly want to push just because....) the artist, Michael Grab writes...
"Balance requires a minimum of THREE contact points. Luckily, every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a NATURAL TRIPOD for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the vibrations of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest “clicks” as the notches of the rocks are moving over one another. In the finest “point-balances”, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters, and in rare cases can even go undetected, in which case intuition and experience become quite useful. Some point-balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. But if you look very close, you may be able to see the tiny notches in which the rocks rest."
This meditative practice is such a beautiful example of listening so carefully that you're able to do what appears to be impossible... you're able to defy gravity itself.
