I’m struck by the world around me now that I’m practising mindfulness!
How beautiful is the world around us !
We need to stop and look around us .
The miracle is all around us !
The cherry blossom is in bloom .
There are only 3 weeks every year that the cherry blossom is in bloom .
How does it know when to bloom , how does it know that now is the time !
I look at my 3 children . They are also miracles ?
Conception is like a lottery and baby development so complex and yet it occurs every day all around the world without any direction from us .
We worry so much and feel we are in control of so much although the miracles around us are not in our control at all !
These beautiful pictures were taken in our back garden. We’ve lived here along time and I’m only really seeing for the first time .
“From barren brown stems to glistening leaf-buds; from the leaf-buds to snowy virginity of bloom…It was like a flute song forgotten in another existence and remembered again. What? How? Why? This singing she heard that had nothing to do with her ears. The rose of the world was breathing out smell. It followed her through all her waking moments and caressed her in her sleep.”
― Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God
