meditation 2

These are just some pictures of my and my partner/hub/bff Scott’s backyard.

We love our back yard, because we get to be creative and be outside in all seasons.  We have found that the plants really do well with some love and freedom to be what they already want to be… and they really do need plenty of sun!  We’ve gotten some pretty good yields of certain veggies, and keep learning with every year that goes by.  I like to garden in the same way I approach Sadhana– with joy, giving and receiving a feeling of freedom, application of work & effort & some discipline, relaxation, allowing nature to lead the way, breathing fresh air, having freedom to make mistakes, letting go of expectations, considering ego-less-ness & non-attachment, having reverence for and love of Mother Nature, Trusting in God, not worrying about the fruit of the action (literally!), carrying on regardless of failures, and remembering that

“no sincere effort is wasted” along the path.
