Earlier tonight, I decided to go to a very nice park in the downtown area to do some nature meditation. So, I arrived downtown, walked around the
park for a bit, enjoying the beautiful scenery, with a starlit sky up above. It was very relaxing. I watched ducks in a pond for a while.
I then decided to find me a nice spot to meditate. Someone once told me a very good tip, and that is if meditating, try be as close to the earth as
possible, instead of indoors. I usually meditate indoors, so this was an exciting experience for me, getting to choose a place to mediate in the
great outdoors. I finally found the perfect spot. I saw 5 trees that were spaced apart equally, and if one connected the dots, the trees made the
formation of a circle. Well almost. A 6th tree would have completed the circle, so I decided that is where I would root myself with the earth.
So there I was, I became the 6th tree for these 5 trees all in a circle. Wow, let me tell you, meditating outside in the fresh air and with the
beautiful trees and surroundings, I got really deep. I'd say I did that for about 45 minutes, then I opened my eyes.
I was now in a very good mindset. It was late, so I decided to head back uptown. On my walk back, I noticed I was noticing different things than
what I usually notice on my walks. What I was noticing, was all the trees! I never really payed attention to them, but now on my walk back, they
were all greeting me! So, I did the nice thing back and said, "Hi tree!" to every tree I passed. I felt their presence, and they really seemed to
take a liking to me, so my 30 minute walk back uptown was extremely rewarding and positive, and full of new friends!
I just thought I'd share my fun little story I had with trees. It brightened my night.
