My garden gives me such peace and soothes my soul. It, just like my knitting and my dog seem to know just how to relieve the internal stresses, sort the conflicting emotions and remind me to be mindful.
Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn’t more complicated that.
It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.
