The Joys Of Summer
It is summer now and the nights are warm. I enjoy sitting outside, feeling the gentle breeze on my skin, emptying my mind and being still.
In these warm evenings, I channel the soft energy of the night inward and meditate on how to make my life better. I see the value in improving myself. I am pleased with my life, but I enjoy working to be even better.
My thoughts flow easily. I am happy. Knowing that I am happy allows me to find ways to help others find their own joy and peace. I bring happiness to others. In fact, I am using these evenings to spend time alone and to bring happiness to myself. I can only help others after I helped myself. Knowing my own worth helps me to value the goodness, kindness and skill in others. It allows me to see where they are hurting and to apply a soothing balm there.
Summer warmth is perfect for meditation. Challenges become opportunities when mulled over in the peaceful darkness.
