Freya had long, blond hair, blue eyes and a lovely smile. She was a happy girl who was curious about life. She also had an adventurous spirit.
She loved the mountains, especially the quiet space beneath the tall pine trees. The best time to go up the mountain behind the town where she lived was at twilight when the trees were illuminated by the light of the setting sun. It was magical. Freya would leave the mountain path and walk into the space beneath the trees to see the beauty there, and to feel the peace.
One evening, as the sun dipped below the horizon, Freya sat on a moss covered rock beneath the tall pine trees and wondered how it was that she could sit in a magical place high up in the mountain while life in the town below was fast-paced, noisy and stressful.
As she reflected upon these two different worlds, an elf suddenly appeared before her. Freya was startled. She had never seen an elf before, except in books when she was small. She blinked once, and blinked a second time.
“Don’t be frightened”, the elf said. “I’m a wise elf. I’m here to guide you. Is there something you want to know?”
“I was wondering how it’s possible that I can sit here in this magical place high up in the mountain, while down in the town below, life is fast-paced, noisy and stressful,” Freya said.
She paused. Then, taking a deep breath, she looked into the elf’s shining eyes. “What is the nature of reality?”
The elf smiled. His voice was gentle. “Reality is that which sees but cannot be seen, and knows but doesn’t think.”
Freya continued to look at the elf, allowing the words he had spoken to settle within her. Finally, she nodded. She didn’t want to think, she didn’t want to speak. She wanted to remain in the magical place that she could feel inside.
The wise elf vanished as quietly as he had come. Freya sat still on the moss covered rock, seeing, but not looking, knowing, but not thinking. She was very grateful. Her blue eyes shone brightly, and a smile rose from the depths of her being and lit up her beautiful face.
