Connecting to the quiet, and being grateful for what is
It’s the weekend here and the difference between a work day and the weekend is very profound. Its 8.30am. I am out walking with my dog. I walk briskly, however the world around me almost stands still. I can hear the birds chirping and there is silence between the odd car that goes by. My business partner ventures out at 6am most mornings to exercise and he enjoys this quiet every day.
It’s a time for thinking, and for letting my body move. I am thankful for all I have. For this day that I am privileged to experience. It’s a beautiful winter day, the sun is shining down on me and my heart is full of love and appreciation. I walk for half an hour and come to sit on a bench under a tree. I let my dog wander around me and I close my eyes and spend just 5 minutes in silent meditation. Its enough because that’s what is.
