Get Out

“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

There’s no better medicine than a run with the girls on a beautiful Sunday morning. The crisp clean air, snow crunching beneath each step and the warmth of the sun. A prayer in motion. Get out and see the world just outside your door. When we get out of our heads, we find our heart, our purpose and peace.

“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

“When you look at the sun during your walking meditation, the mindfulness of the body helps you to see that the sun is in you; without the sun there is no life at all and suddenly you get in touch with the sun in a different way.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

  1. My boy and I got out yesterday and enjoyed the sunshine and warmer temps — bracing for the next round of arctic cold!

  2. I especially like the phrase about getting out of our heads. For us philosophical types (feebly raising hand in corner), I need to remember to get out and observe the wonders of the world around me. Thanks for the reminder and beautiful message.

    • Thanks – my head is like a pinball machine at times. It’s good to get out and see the many blessings around us. The words from a Kathy Mattea song resonate – “we’re standing knee deep in a river, dying of thirst.”
