Use Your Words like Your life Depended on them

Good for the Goose...


Be still, and you never know who will grace your world. On this particular day, a fox, wondered through our yard.

The quite and stillness of living in the country is ideal for meditation. One day, my husband suggested I meditate in the gazebo which is located down by the river. I agreed, and went down to the river the next morning. As I walked down the stone steps, listening to the bird's early morning songs, feeling the breeze lightly brushing my face, I said to myself, this is going to be a great meditation.

I opened all the windows of the gazebo, found a nice comfortable place to sit, and began my meditation. I could hear the river water lapping against the shore in a gently rhythm. I was about about ten minutes into my meditation and all of a sudden I hear a loud commotion. I tried to continue my meditation, but could not. The sound was overwhelming, I got up and looked out the window, and I saw and heard about two hundred geese coming in for landing. They settled in right in front of the gazebo for the day.

I invite you to write about your meditation story.

After listening to a lecture from ajahn brahmavamso on relationships, I got that the geese were not disturbing my meditation, it was I, who was disturbing the geese. It is how we relate with the world which shapes our reality. And how we chose to relate, which will either give us peace or disturb us.

So, how do you want to feel today?

This fall, no one will be disturbing anyone, and the hundreds of geese that visit me on their migration south will chant and be one with me. Noise what noise?
