I normally have the hardest time meditating, but tonight as I was swimming in the pool I began to float. Before I knew it, I realized I was meditating.
It was freeing.
As I laid my head above water, back afloat the waves I created from swimming, and legs just hanging… I took it all in. My surroundings, which consisted of the universe. The trees, the birds, the sky. They encompassed my eyesight and I suddenly felt as if I were one with them. I was being.
My body just lay there.
My hearing clouded by the sound of water.
My mind quieted.
My soul began to truly live.
Next time you find yourself in a pool, take time to float.
- Let your body naturally sit atop the water.
- Look up
- Take in how tall the trees are, how magnificent the clouds are, how the birds chirp. Take in your being.
