To water your inner garden:

“A pool is the eye of the garden in whose candid depths is mirrored its advancing grace.”—Lousie Bebe Wilder
I do believe the pond in my mother’s garden is a kind of eye, magnet and fascination.
Birds splash at the base of the waterfall taking a bath from time to time.
Hummingbirds dart here and there sipping from the flowers.
The colorful koi chase each other around and sometimes pop their heads up out of the water.
The lavender water irises glow.
The sounds of the waterfall refresh.
Dragonflies balance on the tall grasses.
Butterflies happily visit the flowers.
Buddha suggested there is a place, a home within yourself, a place where you can take refuge, a place where you can feel safe and happy. It is an inner kingdom, a refuge. You don’t have to travel far. It’s just a breath away. It is in the present moment.
