points | PLAINS of  STONE

Two lines intersecting make a point. Three hundred sixty single points of degree surrounds us - a plane curve mathematically definable as the locus of a point which moves so that its distance from a fixed point is constant. The 360 cardinal points on the surrounding horizon with you, the single point in this ever present moment, at the exact center of your world. Another point, the sun, which light refracted and magnified through a lens produces a dazzling bright point of light generating extreme brilliant heat bursting forth in flames. Like the crystal clear focus of a single candle in a dark room reflects an artist’s concentration in creation, so these wonderful points lend themselves to clear and gently focused meditation. Amethyst or Tourmaline, large or small, points bring one’s focused energy of concentration to one finite and tangible point in a meditative life.
