The Forest and Our Wisdom – the Close-up project/ week #1

The first week of the Close-up project is behind us. It was dedicated to the virtue of Wisdom.

What were the photos taken by the participants of that project? Where did photo-walks take us? What did the old photos say to us about wisdom?

Many reflections were connected to trees and forests. Here are some of them.

Whoever you are, a man or a tree, wisdom is in all of us.

Trees teach us how to grow. The higher a tree grows, the deeper its roots go. As it grows upwards, it finds an anchor.

What’s in it for us, people? Let’s remember to ground ourselves as we move up. Find time to rest, reflect and learn from experience. Let the body-mind stay alone from time to time, far from noise, pressure and anything that prompts to move forward. Find an anchor in the breath, peace of mind, and quiet.

Go to the forest or to the park every day. Find space where you can meet yourself and listen to your inner voice in silence. The longer you listen, the more you will know.

“Spend some time alone each day.” The Dalai Lama

Below, you can see the slideshow of some of the photos taken as a reflection about Wisdom during the first week of the Close-up project and our photo walks.

And now, you can go out and take a walk yourself. Just let yourself travel. Find a moment to sit and reflect on your wisdom – how can develop and use your wisdom to live better and happier? What will you start doing, what will you continue doing and what will you stop doing based on what you know is best for you. How can you take a better care of yourself? And finally, what will you do in the the coming week in order to live wisely.
