Seeking Mindfulness in Banff, Canada

"It's just that we get so messy. It's not that we're doing lots of wrong things but our minds are so messy. We don't keep it simple. And we end up making the life that we're living so inordinately complicated - completely unnecessarily. It's such a shame to end up feeling in a real muddle when actually you ought to be having the time of your lives." - Burgs

Our present lives are filled with so much distraction and anxiety. We're taught to never be satisfied with our current situations - to always strive for more, to consume more. A trip to the majestic Canadian Rockies in Banff, Canada reminded us of how small we are, and how remarkable this planet is. Everything that we need to sustain ourselves spiritually already exists; it's up to us to notice what we're a part of.
