Day 30

“Nature is always an unfailing fountain of inspiration… Lie on the ground and gaze up into the sky, and let your mind expand into its spaciousness. Let the sky outside awake a sky inside your mind…”

-Sogyal Rinpoche

Today I learned that walking in nature—breathing, observing, admiring nature—is powerfully restorative for my spirit. Well, I already knew this, but I needed a reminder; it was more important to re-learn this today than to gain factual knowledge.

Today I meditated for 20 minutes.

Today I acted compassionately by walking home an 80-year-old woman who recently broke her ribs—“Painkillers? Pff, I don’t believe in that,”to make sure that she didn’t break more ribs on the icy sidewalks.
