Make your world beautiful
I feel so blessed today to have had a wonderful opportunity to practice mindfulness with my son…..
By picking up rubbish.
My little boy and I walk to school each day, and lately I have noticed how much rubbish lines the footpath along which we walk.
So today I followed through on my intention of picking up the rubbish.
And I tried to make it an enjoyable experience for us both.
It wasn’t done with any anger or judgement – of the people who dropped the rubbish, or their reason for doing so.
Rather it was done with a pure and open heart – out of a genuine wish to look after the world around us.
With each piece of rubbish we collected, I felt a sense of happiness, and centredness.
We did it not just to benefit ourselves, but everyone in the community. So that they would enjoy a clean environment.
May all beings be happy
