Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

The lake glistens reflecting gray and white shadows while the birds drift with the tide.
The Great Blue heron
Sits patiently waiting to score a fish.
There is no trying to be patient, trying to be present, trying to be still without his mind racing, he just is.

I am jealous of his ability while I sit cross legged in meditation while thoughts bombard my mind and my body parts scream in pain.
I want to be the Blue Heron and dive into the water unafraid if I get cold or wet or catch a fish every time. Unbothered by what time it is, what I have to do, how I will pay the bills, where I’m suppose to be in an hour, who I might offend if I say my truth, not worrying if I stayed in bed all day and just watched him and the shimmering water.

For a moment I become one with the Blue Heron  and I’m still, content and quiet inside.  Nirvana found.

But for now there are chores to do and places to be so I will drag myself from the window sill but take a picture in my minds eye so I can return to this memory throughout my day.

Help us out by spreading the word!
