I journeyed to the Northwest earlier today, along the coast to Encinitas. I just needed to get away to the SRF Temple and Hermitage (a place where Kriya Yoga is taught and practiced), and I browsed in their Books & Gifts store. They had many beautiful, spiritually symbolic items there that were far too expensive. But I was able to buy a few packages of incense and fragrances for the ashram… my home.
There was a tiled mural outside the SRF Gifts & Books store that I simply fell in love with. Depicting a faraway land that perhaps I’ve always wanted to visit in my dreams. A beautiful mural.
There was a lone rider on an elephant, journeying through this wondrous land….
It appears the rider on the elephant was traveling toward that far off temple there along the river by the waterfall… but, perhaps his true destination was The Himalayas above and beyond….
As I left the store and just before entering my car across the street, I turned around and three palm trees caught my eye and I looked up… the Holy Trinity… the Supreme Father, the Anointed Son, and the Holiest of Spirits… reaching ever upward, towards the Heavens…
And I felt this small, peaceful journey was complete… and I headed home.
