Life as Meditation

Sometimes it's easy to forget that meditation can be a part of everyday life, rather than something you take special time out to "do".

I was reminded of this yesterday, when my Long Suffering Spouse and I went to our local woods to look at the trees, bursting into life after what seems like a very long winter.(These are his photos, taken on my phone).

Just being in that place made it easy just to "be", within myself too, enjoying the sun, the wind, birdsong, and all those spring-green trees.

If you have an outside environment in which you can just "be", do you ever use it as a meditation aid by itself? (And yes, I'm thinking even without an iPod-even if there's a meditation download on it).

If you do that already, what's that like, and how would you rate it alongside anything else you already do to bring peace into your life?

If you don't, give it a go, and let us know what it was like.
