6:00am is a delicious time be outdoors doing Qi Gong, breathing in fresh air, delighting in the sunlight beginning to filter through the trees.  This morning I noticed a beautiful spider web in front of me as I did Sunlight Qi Gong.  Then, in a second, a bird flew through one of the tender strands of the web and it was gone.  I felt so privileged to be there to notice the beautiful web before it disappeared.  I thought of all the work the spider must have put into building it, only to lose it in an instant….and probably begin weaving another.

Each moment is truly filled with miracles if we take the time to notice them.  Mindfulness practice is not “just sitting and meditating” says Thich Nhat Hanh in Your True Home.  “Practice is looking, thinking, touching, drinking, eating, talking.  Every act, every breath, and every step can be mindfulness practice and can help us to become more ourselves.”

Thank you leaves, dew drops, spiders, webs, sunlight, for being my practice teachers this morning.   Mosquitoes too.
