1 Minute Meditation: Pond Time

During the month of May I traveled to Buffalo to visit my Mom for Mother’s Day. Each morning the two of us went walking to a nearby park to enjoy the sights and sounds together.

Put yourself in our shoes… imagine it is early morning–the air is cool, no other people are in sight. The leaves on most trees are brand new–that fresh green color unique to spring. The woods is filled with the melody of bird songs. You sit on a bench overlooking a pond surrounded by trees. The sunlight feels good on your face. The still water creates a perfect mirror. Two canada geese are tooling around in the golden light. You have no where to be and nothing to do… You can sit and JUST BE:

Was it easy to imagine being there? Did you enjoy it? Do you have a place like this near you that you can go and do nothing but look, listen, and enjoy nature?

May the rest of your day be just as peaceful! See you again soon.
