"Go to a garden
And just stand in it.
Breathe in the air, the fragrances,
the light, the temperature,
the music of the different plants, insects, birds, worms,
caterpillars, grasshoppers, and butterflies.
Inhale the prana (cosmic energy) of all the abundantly
Recharge your inner batteries.
This is the joy of natural meditation."
- Lama Surya Das, "Awakening to the Sacred," 1999
When I walk into my garden, I dare to see light reflecting through the pines at night.
Its kind of act like a meditation. It is as though my own soul must be bright invisible green.
"In this light, my spirit saw through all things and into all
creatures, and I recognized God in grass and plants."
