On the patio at this time of the year I sit on my comfy chair to reflect, to rest,to relax, to restore, to recover, and to realize. As I look, feel, see and smell with all of my senses become aware of so much. It is like an explosion of the senses.
What do I see on the patio?
The beautiful flowers with their rich, vibrant colours, the greenery is so warm and inviting, the prayer flags flowing in the breezes, the Buddha who reminds me of the Spiritual aspect of life, the spider spinning its web, Smokey the cat who is having her afternoon nap on the patio. and the afternoon sun is blessing our neighborhood and I see the very large magnificent trees friends and bushes off in the distance. (Oh how I love my tree friends).
What do I hear on the patio?
I hear the soothing music in the background coming from the t.v. I hear the twitter of birds, I hear the occasional car and motorcycle go by, and I hear my own breathing in this quiet restful nurturing place.
What do I smell while on the patio?
The flowers and the aromas that are in the air from various sources.
What do I feel on the patio?
I feel the energies of the plants and foliage and it simply feels like I am connecting to something special, something that is tranquil, something that is Divine.
I feel much gratitude for this special place I have where I can read, where I can write,where I can have a meal under the umbrella, I can play a puzzle under the umbrella and I can simply JUST BE, On the patio.
Until next time please remember that you are valued, appreciated and loved.
