I like the idea of you being out there, me here, sharing in an intimate, yet quiet exchange on this Sacred Sunday.
I breathe in and out, and savor these precious times, wondering if you might be doing the same?
I pick the last of our sunflowers and put it in a vase. It’s sunny face makes me smile and relax into the day. I have made a home here, among the grapes, the garden, the Redwood trees.
“Your True Home Is the Here and Now,” Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Master & Activist writes this in Lion’s Roar magazine. He talks about the 5 Practices to Nurture Happiness, and how to find one’s true home. 1. Letting go. 2. Inviting Positive Seeds. 3. Mindfulness-Based Joy. 4. Concentration and 5. Insight. He says, “We each have many kinds of ‘seeds’ lying deep in our consciousness. Those we water are the ones that sprout, come up into our awareness, and manifest outwardly. ”
As I think about his wise words, I water my seeds by connecting with each of you through my writing.
I wish you peace and joy on this Sacred Sunday. May you find what fills your soul tank. Thank you for being in my life.
