Contemplative Monday


"Through the practice of deep looking, 
we can identify the positive seeds that we want to water every day,
and train ourselves not to water the negative ones."

  1. Oh My!!! your photo today, goes with your words like they are meant to be there together. down here, we dropped from a humid 31C to 22C in a very short time, thunder, drizzle, something that was actually rain, and no need to water any seeds. Wonderful words to keep.

    1. I think acceptance of what comes our way daily, makes this quote more doable, don't you think, Jean?
      Take this photo for instance, one could rejoice with the presence of sunlight or one could feel dismay because the clouds could mean snow/rain. The choice is ours.

    1. It sure does, Barb.
      Being on that hill and looking out at the ocean is always calming and exhilarating at the same time.
