Happiness is a Quiet Sunday Morning

Happiness is a Quiet Sunday Morning

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. ~ Marcus Aurelius

Today the heat broke in the desert, it’s a temporary reprieve, we’re still in the midst of Summer with at least another month of really hot days ahead of us.  In the high desert where I live the heat breaking means it will only 101 degrees today.  I know, that doesn’t sound like much of a break.  But the break is that in the high desert the temperatures drop at night, so when we get days hovering near or below 100 degrees, it means we get nights in the high 60’s and those nights make for amazing mornings.

This was one of those mornings, I woke up earlier than expected, the air was still, 68 degrees.  Clear blue skies, the rabbits and the partridge were lazily walking around on the lawn.  I made an omelet and went out and ate on the deck.  The animals on the properties around me were also waking up for the day, the donkeys were braying, dogs barking, the roosters not wanting to be left out of the chorus made their presence known again and again.

A perfect meditative morning, meditation doesn’t always have to be done on your cushion at your altar.  It can be done sitting in a comfortable chair, on your porch, in the morning summer air on a perfectly happy day.  I hope you’re having a happy day too my friends ~ Rev Kane
