Death Valley

Why do I keep visiting Death Valley National Park?

For many years I have visited Death Valley around December; I consider it a pilgrimage.  It is a journey into a vast, open, colorful, and beautiful place, but even more, it’s a journey that allows me to experience the depth of my inwardness and sense of self.  It awakens and rejuvenates the divine within my core, which is behind and beyond consciousness.

I keep visiting Death Valley because my heart expands when I look at the uninterrupted horizon line.  All my prayers are closely heard in this vast landscape.  I love the desert’s color.  The entire color spectrum is present, yet it’s always mixed with some tan and gray shades.
