|Sweet Potato seedlings--sold bare-root in a bunch|
Because i planted them too close together, my sweet potatoes are the size of carrots. Still, they taste delicious.
We keep the garden of our mind fresh, and even thrilling, by experimenting with new meditations. Currently, i'm teaching a class on Hardwiring Happiness. My new practice is to focus on a happy-making thing for 30 seconds. Like sweet potatoes.
Yes, sweet potatoes may be a mundane happiness, maybe only 3 on a scale of 10. Still i pay attention to that little happiness for as long as i can. A little smile comes to my lips. I breath that tiny ember of happiness throughout my body.
Sweet potatoes. New happiness.
