Though a bit cold, still a fine day to walk in nature.
Sky velvet blue, clouds snow white, leaves fell without a sound,
birds chirping in a crystal clear way like the air that I breathe.
Such a fine gifted afternoon, I thank God
who created all these beautiful ornaments and gifts
for us to enjoy, and most of all the sun
that brings warmth and delight into our hearts.
What's the name of this little bird?
Land on my hand will you?
If peace and joy has an outer appearance,
it should look exactly like this little bird,
it will come upon you
when you choose to let it land,
so be quiet and stay still.
To me meditating is doing simple things
taking care of my plants
since it's something I like doing
so my mind can be very still while doing
there are a few things going on here:
first I enjoy doing
second I practice doing
third I get reward from doing
(The well-being and prosperity of the plants)
fourth almost as a by-product
I gain peaceful mind from the doing
which is exactly the spirit of meditation
but it could work in an opposite way
meaning, doing things don't like
even extremely don't like
Yet, you can still have the stillness of the mind
just like those stones by the river
balanced in a critical and unique way
It's easy to stay calm and be grateful
when things are in your favor
That's called human nature
If you can stay calm and be grateful
When things are against your favor
that's called practice towards supernatural
