Ryoanji Temple, Japan

During a recent visit to Japan, we visited the Ryoanji Temple.

Quietly sitting in front of this rock garden, it is easy to see the simplicity of Zen.

The rock’s come in and out of focus, the mind becomes busy. ┬áThen, return to what is in front of you. ┬áThe simplicity of the rock’s sitting on their beds of moss in the ocean of white pebbles.

While focusing on the islands, it is possible to see the patterns raked into the ocean of white pebbles like ripples in a lake when you throw a stone in to it.
