Today, I set out on Six Lakes Trail for a 20 mile run in preparation of next weekends Flagline 50K in Central Oregon.
I experienced a true sense of meditation. I saw only two people in the first few miles then not a sole for the next 15. I experienced a peace of mind that allowed me to leave everything and only focus on where I was and what I was doing in that very moment. I was present.
It was beautiful to carry my body down the path and hear nothing more than my own footsteps, breath, the wind and surrounding wildlife. With each passing lake I learned a little more about myself, where I was and where I now am. I am grateful, happy and free.
The forest is full of magic like this. It can transform as person. It can make a rude person nice, a sad person happy and stressed person at peace. It will not talk back to you and will always give a second chance as long as you respect it.
