The most enjoyable and relaxing moment in life is to have a walk in garden and look at the beautiful plants, the greenery, meeting up a lot of “new friends”, it’s full of energy and so alive.
Usually, I can enjoy this precious moment in the morning during off day with my lovely Little Black, the little being at home…
Just doing some simple warm up exercise in the garden, enjoy the serenity, peacefulness, fresh air, cooling breeze… You can enjoy the happy breathe in and out with such a good air quality… so fresh!
This is the beautiful moment in life!
You can also do nothing in the garden, just blend in with the nature, being here and now.
I remember a great teaching from Ajahn Brahm, what is the meaning of human being? It meant being here and now. However, in this modern world, its great challenges for us to be here and now, we tend to move forward, always thinking about future yet we are totally forgotten about now. E.g. When we are eating, we intend to think what we should have for next meal? When we are in vacation, we are also intended to think where should I go for next destiny? When are buying a new clothes, we tend to think where to get a new pair of shoes? We are always in hurry, yet we don’t know why we are so busy? What are we chasing? We can’t enjoy now, our mind is keep wandering!
How to be in peace and calm?
When I asked my friend, can you be absolutely do nothing? She was shocked and looked at me in “blank”, then only she replied, “Do nothing! No way, I must be with my smart phone at least… I can’t just sit there by do nothing, I must do something…” Usually, I’ll advise them to try… be totally relax body and mind, no need to feel guilty for do nothing. It’s a great practice.
Why not take a try?
I spend my beautiful moment in the garden, no matter how many times I walked the same path yet I am always get a chance to meet so many new friends…
Why not just do nothing in garden! Enjoy the being here and now with all your new friends!
What a beautiful life!
