Listening to the Wind


She walked across the field of tall grass dressed in khaki colored pants, a tan t-shirt and hiking boots. Watching the sun rise across the meadow she notices a lone wolf and listens to birds chirping as though their day began hours ago. Hearing the wind before it arrives, she looks high in the tree tops to watch for it's appearance. She closes her eyes to feel the caress as the wind circles round the meadow wrapping it’s wings around her and she listens for the wind has a message:

Rest deeply dear one, release the doors you have formed round your heart. Take this beautiful day into every part of your being. Don’t just walk through the day, breath it in, then breath the beauty back out. Make today a breathing meditation. When you are aware of every breath, and feel the gratitude of breathing in beauty and breathing out beauty you will find the gift you have always known in your heart.
