Gardening is meditation in motion and a daily definition of what kindness is. In this outdoor gym, gifts manifest with time, care, sun, rain and the dance of the days. It’s the perfect place to be reminded of the value in patience and giving thanks for the gifts that can grow from seed to food, flowers and fragrance, in front of our eyes.
Time can stretch in the garden…our rhythm in breathing becomes more fluent, deep and regulated as our lungs fill with fresh air…thoughts can give way to prayer and thankfulness..any fatigue is replaced with a heightened and purpose-filled energy…
A garden can exist in a peeny space or a medium to large outdoor area – anywhere there is water, a tree, earth and living things, one has already begun. Even a bird can make the first move, and gift a seed that welcomes in the first sprouting of life in the earth.
