Sit quietly and be calm

March 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Sit quietly doing nothing,

spring comes,

and the grass grows

by itself.

I’ve just settled back at my desk after mowing our lawn (with the ride-on mower – we have two acres:) and this saying sprang to mind. Even though it’s late summer our grass is lush and green and seems to grow as you watch it!

I love the smell of fresh cut grass. It’s so earthy and rich and, well, green.

The seasons roll around so serenely, don’t they? Mother Nature just keeps on doing her thing, never fretting about heat or wind or hail. Taking damage as well as lushness in her stride. Even in times of chaos her power and rawness are breathtaking.

Sometimes, in times of mental chaos – longing for stillness – I seek out Mother Nature as a balm to soothe my soul and calm my frantic thoughts.

When was the last time you sat quietly doing nothing and let Mother Nature work her magic on you?
