Mindfulness

I’m sitting in a landscape, a canvas of color created by an artist of unknown dimension.It is not a painting but rather a tapestry of life.A chill wind brushes across my face.A blanket wrapped around me serves as warmth. My thoughts, as I savor the vista, bring indescribable joy to my being.

There is no one to talk with except the sky.An eagle soars by, not intent on prey, just gliding on the wind that keeps it aloft.I’m glad I am here alone, at this place at this time.I used to believe that I needed people around to fulfill me, to give substance to existence.That has passed and solitude has become a welcome companion.The days of life that I lived with so many others is still a part of me.I can’t deny it, nor would I.But the adventure of self, the discovery of a world deep within me, is as exciting as a mosh pit with heaving bodies or a decibel-laden fury of head banging music.

I do not want to leave, though this place will be here tomorrow and the next day and many days after that.I can return.Yet, the moment will be different.I will be different.Mindfulness presents the gift of now so I seize it, knowing that another moment of joy will surface in the future.

The eagle has flown into the distant sky that embraces the silhouette of low mountains that flirt with the horizon.I breathe in one more portion of freshness as I close my eyes with the sense of calm that emanates from a mind at peace.

It was so beautiful how you described this. It was like a moment captured both in what is seen and what is felt and it created such a sense of peacefulness. It was a joy to read.
