I took some time today to really appreciate and take in my surroundings. I meditated for some time, when I opened my eyes I was greeted with this view, calming and vast. Made me feel humbled and very appreciative of what I have. Just wanted to share the beauty☺️🙏🏻
I found a Temple an hour away. This is kind of a big deal because I’m agoraphobic. It took two weeks to work up the courage to go meditate with strangers, but they didn’t feel like strangers. My family was invited to come every week and to a Magha Puja Ceremony in a few weeks :)
