A while back, I wrote a post entitled 'how to become a mountain' and discussed how you become part of what you are looking at and should therefore always endeavour to look at things that are peaceful in an attempt to become more peaceful. Violence breeds violence. Peace breeds peace.
I have recently come to understand this in a deeper way, through the use of a very brief YouTube clip here. It takes you to the most luscious and natural of places before informing you that this is where you come from and that you should take the whole World with you wherever you go. Upon opening your eyes, your mind still sees the peace and beauty of the wonderful garden you found yourself in within your meditation. This is really true.
Sometimes I find myself sitting and gazing at a pebble or at a curtain blowing in the wind, or any little thing and I realize that my worries don't mean very much at all when this is where I came from - from the wind and the rain and the grass and the leaves and the dirt of the Earth. It was this very train of thought that lead me lately to forgive the sinners on my Facebook block list and to extend a few olive branches! Because none of it really matters.
In this train of thought, it is not as though I forget the things or people that I love with me, but more that they become a part of me to carry around wherever I go. It truly is spectacular.
Boy, have I ever needed this meditation over the last few days. I won't say too much, because I have written a blog post all about it for the blog post awards. I won't leave you in too much suspense either, suffice to say I suffered the worst job interview in the world yesterday! Upon arriving home I created a furious blog post that shall be posted on Monday all about it and no doubt shall show characteristic flaws of grammar and spelling, owing to the ferocity with which it was written!
