Walk Around the Lake
Frederic Brussat and his wife Mary Ann have a lovely website which features all kinds of wonderful and inspirational insights and suggestions - all related to spiritual practice. In one section of their site, they list a number of suggestions for summertime practice. Here is an entry on this list:
23. WALK AROUND THE LAKE
In one of his poems, Wallace Stevens observed: "Perhaps the truth depends upon a walk around the lake." Ponder that thought as you circumnavigate a lake, a pond, a field, or even your block. Just the experience of moving puts things in perspective and enables you to take in the big picture.I think of the many insights that have come to me by meditating by the banks of the river, or communing with its healing currents. If I had the opportunity to be by the ocean more often, I know I would seek out its comfort as I did while visiting Cape Cod last summer.
Make it a point to visit a body of water this summer and be open to whatever gifts you may receive!
