“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”
It’s very easy to create a place of refuge where it’s easier to “rejoice in the way things are”. Choose a place outside in your yard or even on a smaller patio or deck.
Tend to your senses with relaxing sounds (bubbling fountain, wind chimes, song birds); scents (incense, aromatherapy candles); beautiful and healing sights (flowers, green plants, butterflies, imagery of a Holy Being); and soothing tastes (scented teas, fragrant fruits).
This summer, please gift yourself with time out in the fresh air in your little sanctuary every day for meditation, meals, drinking tea or even a little nap. It’s such a simple and glorious way to restore your precious qi!
