A few days ago it was time to check in our two new bee colonies. This was our second foray up to the hives. We got suited up and checked one another with care. We made sure that we had the tools we needed, and then we set out.
As we approached the hives I became really focused on my thinking, actions and feelings.
Much later, after we had checked in on the queens and refreshed the sugar water, and placed everything back, I had this realization:
Being a bee keeper is a mindfulness practice. 🙂
What a valuable lesson here to bring to life and share:
Respect this space.
Be open to the unknown.
Respect those around me.
(Even when they are busy busy busy and I have no clue what they are doing!)
There is an intelligence here that I cannot fathom.
I may not understand but I trust in nature.
Breathe easily into each moment as it unfolds.
Notice what comes up.
Give it space.
Let it bee.
We can bring a sense of mindfulness into all sorts of routine behaviors and actions in your daily lives. There’s no need to sit meditating or roll out a yoga mat to find your Middle Ground.
Take a moment to consider the mindful moments of your day. When you feel connected with yourself and the world around you. When you are truly present.
Is there some routine or action where you can bring a new sense of awareness and presence?….
