|4 Direction Tree|
My last blog was about time....hmmm...Sunday Gratitude on Tuesday Tip Day....I am always thrown for a loop when we have to change the clock. I don't understand how it saves energy...maybe in a city? But here the time changes seems to deplete people energy! But this is Not Gratitude!!!
I try each day to sit and BE quiet. I won't call it formal meditation, it is just sitting and quieting. My house buzzzes so I try and go outside for my sitting. Even with the super cold we have been having I just bundle up. Also, I sit after I have walked so my body is warm and Runa is satisfied to sniff about.
I have two sitting places right now. One is this sideways growing old wild apple trees. It makes for a lovely bench. My scarf makes a nice seat cushion and is easy to carry when I walk. This spot is near the house and I can stare at this beautiful tree. It is a big old pine with 4 huge trunks coming out of the base. This tree is a wonderful focal point and helps quiet my mind. I call it the 4 Direction Tree.
My other spot is further in the woods near the spring on this downed old apple tree. This spot is nice because it faces south and I can enjoy the warmth on my face. I am grateful for taking time most every day to just sit. Some days, due to my busy life it is only for a few minutes. But I find the practice of quieting helps make the busy-ness flow more peacefully.
It is my intention, each Sunday, (OR another Day)to share something that fills me with Gratitude.
I write ~~~Gratitude~~~ with the wavy lines to represent the gratitude ENERGY~~~~~!
I hope you will join me and share your gratitude moments.
~~~Amen, Blessed Be, Namaste'~~~
