What Flowers in Your Life?

I cut my first bouquet of zinnias yesterday, from plants i started from seed. It's particularly gratifying that they have begun to bloom in colors i enjoy--a lot of Berry Mix and a few Crayon (red, orange, yellow).

The seeds we plant in meditation--mindfulness, kindness, calm, gratitude, energy, attention--also flower in our daily life. Mindfulness begins to pop up unexpectedly in our daily activities. We find ourselves being kind to other drivers. We feel calmer in the face of the unknown future. We may even like ourselves better.

Plant seeds of mindfulness today and see what flowers in your life. E-mail me and tell me about it.
