This morning I’m sitting by my pond in the hot March sun (LOL!) listening to the waterfall and the birds. Watching the Koi gliding and swirling, together in a pack and then off on their separate errands. Sparkle the biggest (she’s a bit like a parade float compared to the others) leading the way.
I’m reading and writing. Thinking, this is nice. This is a perfect morning.
And then I started thinking, who am I? Who am I to be sitting here enjoying sitting here. Shouldn’t I be struggling and striving and worrying. Shouldn’t I be earning my space on this earth. Why do I deserve to be sitting here, on a Wednesday morning happy as a lark?
Further, who am I to be blogging? To be writing? Who am I?
Here’s the thing. Here’s my daily meditation.
May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I be safe. May I live with ease.
Wow! Ok. I’m sitting here this morning thinking. Shoot. If that meditation isn’t working after all.
And then I continue with the meditation to include my family. And then my friends And then my not friends.
May all beings be happy. May all beings be healthy. May all beings be safe. May all beings live with ease.
Saying this daily meditation. Writing this blog. Is like planting seeds. So many are skeptical, “I’m afraid that won’t work.” “I’m afraid they won’t come up.”
Sitting by my pond this morning, happy, healthy, safe, with ease. It’s working. Just as I knew it would.
