Nurt Thurs – Moments of Joy

Inner peace. Many things happening in the world right now, we need to find pockets of joy here and there to keep our inner peace.

  • I’m walking around my neighbourhood early morning and trying to find ordinary beauty in each corner.
  • Taking care of my plants: potting and repotting, watering, talking to them, yes! you heard it right! I like to talk to them.
  • Watching the sunset in the evenings after all the chores of the day are done.

Hope you can find moments of joy during your day.

Moments of calm

  • Early mornings, the time between the night and the light
  • Flowers, always flowers
  • A cup of coffee in my hands conducting the warmth through my body
  • The smell of soil and rain in the air
  • Birds songs
  • A rabbit wondering around
  • The breeze playing with my hair

Have a great weekend!

Namaste

peace in my garden

I’ve just read a lovely poem about calm in chaos by Judei Takali here. It’s exactly my feeling right now. I’ve been feeling exhausted, without a place to ground and to be myself. Yesterday was a lovely day, I was in my garden and these dandelions called my attention. When I looked at them, I saw the Buddha statue, in there, solid and peaceful, not because it is a statue, but the feeling that comes from it and what it represents. Nothing can go inside it and disturb its peace. I though I can reach this state of peace too, this calm that nothing can disturb. I know that my words sound crazy, but this is my feeling in the last few hours.

I’m going to make space to ground and to feel solid, and don’t let anything enter my being if it will not make me calm.

I’ll invest in myself and I’ve already started it. I’m joining Michelle GD in her Just5Things course that starts tomorrow. Few minutes per day, making lists, and it will be the space to work on my ground and calm project. Like everything in life, we need practice and commitment, we can’t just say, ok, I’ll do this and that, everything needs work and discipline.

Nasmate and love your way!

Stay safe!

May Flowers

my cherry tree

We planted this cherry tree in our backyard a few years back. She was 2 feet tall, a say a baby tree. Now she’s maybe 8 feet tall and she is blooming!

I say ‘she’ because to me all the trees are female. They are fertile, they give flowers and fruits, they are home for birds and other animals. They are always ready to give security and love. Oh! if you don’t know yet, I’m a tree hugger too!

Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul.

Luther Burbank

Wishing a wonderful May to you! Stay safe!

Nurt Thurs :: Expression

Refreshing and creating

Expression is the essence of thought.

Tony Calderone

We all need fresh air from time to time, to open up our mind and let our feelings surface. It’s like that say: Thinking outside the box!

Expression is the mystery of beauty.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton

There are so many rules and directions to be followed for each task at any moment. We get lost in the middle of them. Where is the creativity in all of this?

To express one’s inner self so that others can understand you, is art. If your expressions are elevated and beautiful, it is good art.
