I’ve been recently fascinated. Yea. Weird. I find myself in a strange state of seeing people in need and knowing that goodness will help them and also help me. This experience has gotten fueled after spending an entire day solo in my garden pretending.
The beauty is — whatever I wanted.
No kidding, I got out there before dawn and the weather was perfect, about 68 degrees and a little overcast. Birds sang [and I was already awake] Water danced in a fountain nearby, the breeze came by ever so gently. I drank great coffee with real cream, ate rich Greek yogurt with organic blueberries, and sat in the yard, under trees at a patio table. A few humming birds came right up next to me.
Great clarity came about and come Monday and Tuesday, I had a feeling of such replenishment that I began the week ready to be of more meaningful service to those around me. I find I am more available to invite friends to come and sit out in the garden with me and take in the refreshment of it and feel a bit of relief from their massive stress — and some of my people are experiencing enormous heart breaking stress. It is not enough to teach relaxation or breathing, I want to sit and introduce the quiet of nature. It is magical. Give yourself the same sort of opportunity. Keep it simple, keep it local, live it, love it, and you will succeed.
