I didn't expect to find me here

August 18th, 2013, 3pm

It was 33°C with few clouds. There was moderate breeze.

I came to Houston to see the James Turrell exhibition, not realizing I’d also have the chance to see the Rothko Chapel and sit beside the Barnett Newman reflecting pool. The chapel provides books for meditation, and a copy of the I Ching fell open to the hexagram for Peace (Tai). It was described as unobstructed union. I wondered if, like Turrell’s installations that present projected light the viewer perceives as solid matter, the things I perceive as obstructions are illusion.

If I mustered the courage to press my hand against that which impedes me, how often would I find my path is unobstructed?

Is this my path to peace?
