Take-Away Tip It really is possible. Take a walk in the early morning or early evening, when things are a bit calmer and quieter.
Start by noticing: – The colour of the grass–not green, but grey, brown, bright green, light green, dark green – The notes in a birdsong, and how it differs from another’s – The different sounds car tires make on the road – The specks of grey–dark, light, brown, white–on the sidewalk – Leaves, brown and wrinkled, damp or dry
Just be completely present. United with each minuscule moment. Breathe.
I did this on my morning walk instead of doing my usual mantra. I paused beneath a tree, one palm on its trunk, closed my eyes and felt the peace there. Birds were singing. The air was still. Everything paused. And in that moment I was enveloped in love, had the feeling of being hugged by the universe. It’s always there; just waiting for us to feel it.
