|BUDDHA WITH STONES|
Today I am outside on this sunny morning taking in the beauty that surrounds me. The hornets, bluebirds, robins, spring flowers, trees, and unidentified insects poking their noses into the fresh air from their hidden places. The weeds in my fields and woodlands are beginning to grow again. Moths are coming to my back light where I find them on my house bricks in the morning.
This morning's practice of waking and walking about my yard, letting nature fill my mind, calms me greatly.
My heart resonates with compassion for all living things around the world.
Today, I am fortunate to be able to experience nature's bounty -- it lightens my mind.
