On Fields Pond

by Lance Ekum on · 74 comments


“We carry with us the won­ders, we seek  with­out us.” ~ Sir Thomas Browne

To step away, to see with dif­fer­ent eyes. 

Per­haps that’s it.  To see “you” in a whole new light.  To con­nect to some­thing deeper, some­thing more meaningful.

What is it that really draws us to visit new places, or to return to that place…that place of spe­cial mean­ing?  There is a world out there to see, to expe­ri­ence, to know.  And yet, within all that…

…there is another journey…

The jour­ney into that deep and mag­nif­i­cent chasm of “you”

A world to explore.  A world right within your own being. 

On Fields Pond.

“A lake is the landscape’s most beau­ti­ful and expres­sive fea­ture.  It is Earth’s eye; look­ing into which the beholder mea­sures the depth of his own nature.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

I live today, not to seek wealth by com­mon means.  I live today, in the wealth of expe­ri­ences, of moments, of love, of being.

Wednes­day, July 21.  Still­ness.  A set­tled fog upon the pond.  Morn­ing sun, ris­ing in the east.  A loon calls from deep within the fog.  An eagle soars overhead. 

And this is right and good.  The pond and I.

It calls my name.  With kayak, I travel into the pond, into that fog.

And stop. 

I let that all envelop me.  The beauty of this day, this place, these crea­tures, nature, our world.

That call of the loon.  How is it possible?

The flight of that eagle.  What gives her wings?

The fish that swim.  The fog that lifts.  The plants that grow.  The frogs that croak.  The water that moves.  The moon that sets.  The sun that rises.

All of this, a cohe­sive one.  A one with each other…together….

All of this, enter­ing my soul as I sit there, stilled, within that fog-covered pond.

We are one…connected at our soul.

And still, we are each so unique and truly amaz­ing.  Like that loon, or the lift­ing fog.

Do I see this every day?

No, not the lift­ing fog. 

Do I really see the unique and incred­i­ble being I am…not just on July 21…every day.

Do you?

Do you see that in you?  How amaz­ingly incred­i­ble you are!  YOU!  Flow­ing from your being, this spe­cial thing that makes you shine… (because you really do!)

Oh…maybe you don’t always see that.  It’s so easy to let the dis­trac­tions of life over­shadow the amaz­ing within you.  It’s there, though.  In each of us.  In every crea­ture, great and small. 

Today, choose to believe…believe in you…

Shine brightly…and live…

And as I reflect back, I’m drawn to that loon…on a still and peace­ful daybreak…

…on Fields Pond…

Erin Prais-Hintz August 10, 2010 at 2:04 pm

This is just so precious to hear today. I love the way that you see the world, Lance. How you look at it through a lens of introspection and quietude. I can picture myself on said pond (not in said, kayak, unless you would like to greet said pond and give it a sloppy, wet kiss). I love the idea of paddling out alone to find the best that is in you. Because it most certainly does exist. I think that we often struggle with the ‘not enoughs’ when really all that you need is waiting within, like a seed that has not yet grown tentative roots and unfurled to reach for the light. Sometimes you have to be your own light and push your way through. But it is all there in you all the time.
Believe it. Make it so.

Thank you for your inspiration, Lance. And I am sorry that I have been conspicuously absent from comments. I do come here and read you all the time. It is good to be back.

Enjoy the day!
Erin

Erin,
I’m smiling (of course), as I read your take on said kayak! Being out there, within the fog of that morning, completely alone on this pond – this really was such a peaceful existence. Everything else faded away, as that moment became me. In daily life – we don’t have to always kayak out in a quiet lake to experience this solitude…if we can let go, even if just for a little bit, of all other distractions. Not always easy (I know…).

Erin, it’s so good having you here today…and really…whenever you can make it. When it is right for you to comment, you will…and that’s perfectly okay…

Much peace,
Lance

Lance, you are back and with so much prose and beauty – I read this while Bach was playing in the background and it had an amazing calming effect on me. Of course I don’t see the amazing person I am every day – life is too busy and I must pay a visit to this magical pond but your writing enveloped me and embraced me so compassionately. You are amazing, Lance – and you should write a lot more often. I miss seeing your words here. THANK YOU!!!

Farnoosh,
As I read your comment, and let soak in the thought of classical music playing alongside of this…beautiful. Thank you so much for this moment – this one right now – as I let this settle into my soul.

Farnoosh, what’s interesting is how quickly I found myself reverting to pre-vacation days once we returned home from this wonderful place. And it took me a couple of days before I kind of sat myself down and reminded “me” that I can experience that right here – maybe not physically, but metaphorically – being in that same place – a place of much peace. And your comment today also helps to remind me of that – and the soothing effect that music can have too…

Tess,
I arose early on this particular morning with this exact plan – to have some moments of silence out on this pond. What was so wonderful – just how moving this all was – much more so than any thought of it in my head had been. And I believe very much that it was because I just let myself fully be in the moment, absorbing all that was surrounding me. So good…

Much peace,

The fog over the pond just made the whole moment feel almost surreal. And it was almost instinctual to get my camera out and take a couple of pictures. Later, as I viewed them – this one was particularly meaningful – with the rowboat, the fog, the water…

Yes…we are indeed all one. In moments like this one on the water, I felt this very deeply.

Thanks, Lance! What a calming effect I felt while reading this today. Sometimes we need to go to a beautiful place, like Fields Pond…to be at one with nature. We don’t always have to go far. Somewhere to keep our lives focused on *believing in ourselves* and all that we are capable of being. It is a place I visit often!

As I’m sure you can relate, a lake can have a beautiful calming affect. This one particular day was especially moving – the quiet, the fog, the loons, the departing moon accompanied by the arriving sun. And just me. It’s hard to fully describe the real serenity of the moment…

….and this…yes…will stay with me always…

Hello Lance,

What a precious gift stillness and solitude can bring to the spirit. I so totally identify with what you’ve shared here. To be in the moment, REALLY in the MOMENT, absorbing all the beauty that surrounds you…it is healing to the soul don’t you think. I know I need more of this. I think it is those times that fill us with what we need to live a life of calm and peace as well as a life in service to others. Too long without those times, and our supply e=runs low.

Beautiful Lance. Great job with this post. I think I will need to meet you in person one of these days, and talk of such things. :-)

Reply

Lance August 12, 2010 at 8:44 am

Keith,
Yes, there is very much a healing aspect in the stillness we allow within ourselves. And in that healing, I also find a deeper connection to self. Wonderful…to really experience moments like this. I’d like to say that I am at this space often…and yet the truth is, life has a way of making this a challenge, especially if we’re not consciously aware of our state of being. (…part of the journey, I suppose…in getting more deeply connected to self…)

Keith, we definitely must connect up some day! I very much look forward to that…

Hello Lance:
I want to thank you for the beautiful sanity and peace I’ve touched as I’ve spent a bit of time with you at this post. I’ve just come off attending a busy 5-day blogging course and my mind could be very preoccupied if I wanted to go that route.
But I’d much rather share a few moments with you on a pond I guess in Wisconsin. Just to be reminded of loons… I lived for 36 years in the Cariboo in the interior of British Columbia and loons were part of the tapestry of my life.
Such a pleasure to share life’s journey with you Lance. And by the way thank you so much for your recent comment at my blog. I send warmest greetings to you and all the fortunate fellow beings who gravitate to your blog….

Thanks so much for the visit today and wonderful comment. This pond was actually one located in the beautiful state of Maine…which we have just returned home from after vacationing there. Such a peaceful place it was…and a place that is very much made for deep conversations along with a whole bunch of fun, too. Someday…maybe we shall spend some time together…reflecting on life and it’s beauty (and we definitely have lots of lakes here in Wisconsin, too!).

Wow, your time in the Cariboo must have been a special place…I’m sensing that now as I let that imagery soak into my soul.

Thanks for your words back Lance. Deep conversations and a bunch of fun. It doesn’t get any better than that. I think (just my own theory) that when we have a certain long-time connection to the soul of Nature (love of Nature) it makes it easier for us to find wings … and to find kindred spirits. The stillness we love is one stillness — the only stillness there is and the basis perhaps of true community. Look forward to those talks.

Sorry to be a pedant Lance, but it’s important to me to see Sir Thomas Browne quoted correctly, otherwise quotations end up like Chinese whispers, slowly altering with each citation !

Probably not your fault that the line you quote strictly speaking, varies from the text which in full reads (spelling modernized)-

We carry with us the wonders, we seek without us.
There is all Africa, and her prodigies in us, we are that bold and adventurous piece of nature, which he that studies, wisely learns in a compendium, what others labour at in a divided piece and endless volume. Religio Medici Part 1:15

No problem whatsoever. In fact, I very much appreciate you taking the time to share this. I have changed the quote above. I did find several references to what I had originally – cited back to Sir Thomas Browne. Still, I found even more pointing to what you have shared.

Hi Lance – I loved your photo .. and so pleased to hear you had such a wonderful time in Maine – just getting away from it all .. while pondering life and its meaning – nature has a wonderful way of enveloping us sometimes, when we allow it. That mist rising .. when everything is quiet and there is no wind to ripple the water, waiting calmly for the sun to rise and burn it away for another day .. clearing ones thoughts in the process .. I love your description.

I hadn’t heard of loon before – but a lovely name for a duck! Have a great day .. Hilary

It’s so interesting that you mention “fearlessness”, as that is not something I had thought about with this post. And yet, what you share – and as I read the words again today – I do feel that safety that you mention.

If I can truly act from a place that is free from judgment, what a wonderful place to be.

So know that all your words here hold dear and special meaning to me. And your presence, as well, in this space provide deep introspection always…for me…

Much peace,
Lance

Hi. It’s a nice share from you. And not to mention, the photo of the lake was nicely taken. And uhm, a little bit creepy? But still nice thou!
