This small shinto shrine is in calm place.
There are many trees in the precincts of the Shinto shrine.

Behind the gate, long path lies to the hall.
When I am in front of the gate.
I feel a kind of dignity not only to the gate but also to the path.

It makes me think of a Buddha's quote: There is no way to happyness, happyness IS the way" ..

HI! Oh how I love so much the way you view life, the awareness with which you are a part of it. In this post of approaching the gate, the honor you speak of, I understand this as well, the reverence for the Self as being one with, perhaps.
I remember shrines in Japan, and tying paper prayers to trees.
Walking the path is like a ceremony, and I think maybe if we but realized, life is a ceremony. The gate must represent reverence for life.
What honor to walk that path.

Thank you Nobu for reminding me .... you always bring a smile here..a connection. Thank you

I miss the serenity of Japanese shrines. I would always climb to the top of the hill to visit that kind, too.
