Mindfulness ~ a trip to my meditation garden.:

Mindfulness ~ a trip to my meditation garden. Twenty years ago I began to create a “Meditation Garden” . With the help of my sons we created a space on my 25 acres where we could relax, detach, and step out of ourselves in a mindful way to consider who we are and how we project ourselves to others. In my garden I honor ALL of the world religions as expression of exploring the sacred “I-thou” relationship . You are all welcome to visit if you like. The following is a brief visual tour.

“Instead of being presented with stereotypes by age, sex, color, class, or religion, children must have the opportunity to learn that within each range, some people are loathsome and some are delightful.” ~ Margaret Meade “I encourage students to pursue an idea far enough so they can see what the clichés and stereotypes are. Only then do they begin to hit pay dirt. ” ~ Robert Morgan Be flexible and avoid negative judgments of others (but it is ok not to like someone because their values and beliefs conflict with yours)
