I am filled with serenity and calm in this present moment. All other thoughts and cares have melted away. I am in bliss with nature in this now moment. What beauty nature offers, if we just look, listen, sense, and feel. Here in my garden, the rustling sound of the leaves bring additional soothing comfort to my mind and whole being. I now hear the song of a bird in the distance, its melody bringing cheer and upliftment to all who will hear. More birds now add to the chorus. How sweet they sound!
I close my eyes again for a moment, drinking in the fresh spring air. I am grateful for this now moment and for the harmony it ushers in. I hear the rhythm of my wind chime quicken as it sends out its tune in all directions. Ah, such bliss this is. I am content in the now, nothing else comes to mind. I sit here in nature immersed in its delights.
As I look further into the distance, I see all that is growing and beginning to bloom. Spring is here. How wise nature is. The plants and flowers need not be coaxed or told how to grow. Each year they just do their thing. They begin to emerge, bloom, and grow all on their own, as they always know when the time is right. They don’t force nor resist, they just be what they are. I notice the color green emerging everywhere and the little flower buds beginning to make their appearance after the long winter. How joyful I feel for their arrival. They are friends from nature that return this time of the year.
As I write from this place of stillness, I am grateful for so many things like this quiet time and for all nature offers. Another gift has now appeared for us all. I hear a call directly above. Three majestic birds are soaring freely and happily in the sky. Let us soar together right here and now.
