“Your nature is absolute peace. You are not the mind. Silence your mind through concentration and meditation, and you will discover the peace of the Spirit that you are, and have always been.”
I’ve been walking the garden now every night to check on the slugs. This has turned into a real meditation which I now look forward to. Taking my time, I go out rain or not with my torch and a jar, I check all the vegetation for the little night creatures, the garden at that time of night is usually still, so still that I can hear the slugs move, or chew on a leaf. The scents come out too, the sweetpeas, privet, and other more earthy scents, or just the fresh air give pleasure. In the light of the torch things become more intensely focussed, things like plants or parts of plants that are normally barely noticed, strange that.
