If Meditation is difficult to come by

August 23

If you find that meditation does not come easily in your city room,

be inventive and go out into nature. Nature is always an unfailing

fountain of inspiration. To calm your mind, go for a walk at dawn in

the park, or watch the dew on a rose in a garden. Lie on the ground

and gaze up into the sky, and let your mind expand into its

spaciousness. Let the sky outside awaken a sky inside your mind.

Stand by a stream and mingle your mind with its rushing; become one

with its ceaseless sound. Sit by a waterfall and let its healing

laughter purify your spirit. Walk on a beach and take the sea wind

full and sweet against your face. Celebrate and use the beauty of

moonlight to poise your mind. Sit by a lake or in a garden and,

breathing quietly, let your mind fall silent as the moon comes up

majestically and slowly in the cloudless night.
