    Freedom And Peace

    ~Meadow Mind ~

    Sometimes I have moments of quietude that bespeak the tranquility of a quiet meadow by a lake. Born in some reverie I quietly tiptoed within, this "meadow mind" is a gift of spirit that always soothes.  Alone but not alone, it seems a deepness beyond depth--a hallowed softness...

    but I'm easily distracted. Once, I reached that point of perfect peace. I freaked out because I had never experienced peace like that in my chaotic life. But it made me feel good and better, like I was given a new perspective on things.

    Do You Feel Connected With Nature As You Meditate?

    When you meditate outside, do you ever feel a connection with nature? If so, what part of nature do you feel connected to the most? When I meditate outside, I feel more connected to the trees and bodies of water. I feel very refreshed when I'm done.
