From the book
In Shin Shin Rin Yoku Ki, 心森林浴気
it's not only the fullness
which is articulated by its manifestations
or the emptiness by its appearance.
The nothingness too has its share of the totality
which has not yet appeared
or will never appear.
By the generosity of nature
the prana takes its impact and
chooses its determination
with your approach
with a little of your concentration and
a little of your repetition
and your presence.
This is how by following
the ancient road of the forest
(Kumano Kodou, 熊野古道 ),
by listening to the whispering of the forest
you get in touch
with the beauty of the heart of the forest.
The opening of the road of the ancient
(Kumano Kodou, 熊野古道 )
who resides anchored
in your mind and in your body
makes you ready by your heart to
regenerate and amplify and unify your soul
with the forest.
At this very moment you feel protected and
carried away by the fluid of the environment,
in perfect harmony and
delighted by this feeling
which is the sweet scent
that flies in you ...
and the forest greets you.
