Seeing Beauty Again

It’s amazing how much more noticeable beauty is when we are in a relaxed state of mind. There are cycles in which I am so busy that I even forget how much I love trees. Eventually something happens and reminds me of the importance of the practice, of meditation – and I get back to center. And then I can sense beauty again. It has always been there, I was just blind.

Have you felt this way? Just as in meditation practice, when we go for a ride on a thought, notice it, and come back to the breath, in our lives we feel beauty and relaxed, and then go on a run of business and action, get a bit lost, and then come back to beauty. It’s really true that in every small thing, you can see the whole – and this is comforting.
