on my mind this week.....
take a moment to appreciate....
I was sitting in the conservatory the other day, just about to settle into my meditation, when a squirrel caught my eye. i have plenty in the garden, having big trees nearby, and have become used to sharing my garden and its bounty with them. I had put some monkey nuts out for them and watched as one discovered them, chased off a rival and set to with a plan for these nuts. i thought the squirrel would take them away, but it started to hide them...one at a time, each in a different place. This got me thinking about hiding, and the subject stayed in my mind all day.
What do we hide from others? Maybe physically, or emotionally? Maybe we hide things from ourself?
The tradition of mindfulness encourages self awareness, self compassion, kindness and curiosity. Seeing this subject as one for exploration, rather than as a negative. Maybe you are hiding your talents? Maybe you are hiding your truth by believing that others are more important, or more 'right' than you.
Fo rme, mindfulness allows exploration and contemplation, an opportunity to expand and grow. There is no right or wrong.
So...what are you hiding?
