“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.
It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.”
The peace and quiet that is winter, allows the deeper recesses of ourselves to be wholly alive, riotous even!
Exploring the inner spaces is never ending…
“How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains.”
Our new year is a gift of 365 mornings resplendent in fresh beginnings and the possibility for sweet reflective endings. Here’s to giving each one of these days as glorious a greeting as the sun gives the mountains, with abundant gratitude from sunrise to sunset.
Happiest of New Years!! May it be brimming with Radiant Health, Adventure, Love, Learning, Deepening, Blessings, Unexpected Gifts and a Peaceful Heart, infused with nature, animals, family and friends!!
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
“I like to walk alone on country paths,
rice plants and wild grasses on both sides,
putting each foot down on the earth
in mindfulness, knowing
that I walk on the wondrous earth.
In such moments, existence is a miraculous
and mysterious reality.
People usually consider walking on water
or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle
is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle
which we don’t even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child–
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
