After Easter

What happens post-Easter? Yes, the days get longer and brighter and fresher; the buds become leaves and flowers and the fields seem to burst suddenly into vigorous colour.

 

It’s a time for a “spring clean” and I see it as a time for sustained (and sustainable) new growth. I love walks in the woods at this time.  New buds of leaves come into being, catkins form at the edges of seemingly dead twigs, birds gift their liquid song to all…

Here is where I take my inspiration for mindful meditation. Watching a tight bud literally unfurl is a humbling and exhilarating experience which resembles a mind: all the potential tightly held, just waiting to unfold into glorious existence.
