Watching my plants grow from seeds to young shoots give me a sense of peace. A natural form of peace that it is unfolding into its desired form. There's an element of surprise each time I visit my Garden to check on them. I am not disappointed many a times. There was the little earthworm that appear in one of the big pot and small insects (hopefully not harmful) that flies around the plants, as if they are curious to find out more.
It also gives me a sense of peace knowing that my family health , safety and well-being is in top shape. Evidence - they go about their own ways, going to school, playing, watching TV and the Mrs busy with work and her little cooking project. I am also blessed with good health, relying on natural remedies like honey, salt water if I find my voice a little too harsh and dry. Lots of water, tea and coffee to replenish and lift up my mood.
Right now, sitting outside my garden, I feel a great sense of quietness and peace since most city dwellers are busy attending meeting and at work. I am the lucky one, I guess.
Knowing that all things end up well gets me relieved and reduce the unnecessary stress when thinking about work, money, future, etc. It is not a necessary process, one that is exacerbated by the ongoing media that tells you so and so...........
Read, decide if it is useful, if not, flush it away and not even store it in my mind.
Pile on only those things that are align with my desires, Volvo , Japan, Russia, my garden, new house, the kids, wife and new career.
Pass no comments on other things I read - so that it will not occupy extra space in my mind and clouds my vision and decision making.
I am at peace.
