    Fire Is a Great Tool For Meditation

    Sitting quietly, watching the flames dance, just become aware of your breath as it moves in and out of your body.  Relax into the awareness and feel the stress leave you with each exhalation.  As you mind and body become calm, concentrate on the leaping flames, the...

    It's Soothing...

    It helps me calm my nerves. Our fire used to have a gas connection but some stupid builders but it off so now it doesn't work. But when it worked, I used to love sitting in front of it and just whiling the time away. :)

    Would Be Great Right Now

    I'd love to just be sitting in front of the fire all cuddled up with my girl. That is just such a great feeling to me, even better than sex. Stare at the fire and just lie there speechless, damn that sounds so nice right now.

    Fire Front

    Not only it makes us think while were sitting in front of the fire.  I find it also makes us relax since the view is calming.  I love the fire, the wood, the flames and fumes.  :)

    Fire Is One Of The Best Things In Existence.

    There is nothing really like it. It is equally good as it is bad. I love to be with it no matter where. Besides, siting with friends around a fire in the middle of the night is awsome. Just talking and telling stories well the fire burns on. Fire is also helpful when it comes...
