An amazing thing happened to me today, something that helped me to appreciate the beautiful sun and nature of this world, and gave me hope for my dream and journey. What happened? I was walking past a house I used to live in a decade ago and while seeing if people I knew still lived in the house, people I haven’t seen in a decade, I noticed an elderly lady gardening in the neighboring front yard and asked her if she remembered the landlady and her friends who used to live in the house I used to live in. She remembered exactly who I was talking about and told me the people I was looking for had moved. Who was the landlady I was looking for? She was like a mother to me. When I last saw her we were fighting furiously, a decade ago. Recently she passed away but I wondered if her friends had kept her house for her.
The lady who had been gardening wondered about her old neighbor as well and I told her about how her neighbor, who had moved, had passed away. This was news I had recently gotten myself, and I wish I could have seen this “neighbor” one last time before she had passed.
The elderly lady told me more about herself and together we began to make a prayer for all the children in the world as we looked around at the bright green summer trees. She had the connections, and knew her deceased neighbor had meant a lot to me. I left talking with her feeling so close to the universe, so hopeful for my life, so grateful for everything I had. This kind stranger had blessed me, told me she would continue to pray for me, and I began to think about how happy she looked gardening by herself. I had just started some serious gardening projects myself in my own backyard, and when I got home today I found myself filled with so much love as I worked away landscaping in the garden. Just a few days ago I had ordered some landscaping Victoria BC services to cut my slantwise backyard into seven terraces held in place by retaining walls, and just moments ago I used my recent inspiration to come up with an entire garden layout design for my empty terraces. The first terrace, the one that reaches by patio, already has a fountain and I’m going to put some benches around it with lots of ferns, bird feeders and a sundial, with a 8-figure cobbled path so I can stroll around in circles meditating as time goes by. That is about a week of work and so I thought once I got the first terrace done I’ll walk around meditating and decide what the next terrace will be, rather than making all my important decisions at once. This for me is a reminder that we never know where our lives will go and that means the next terrace or chapter in your life could be so much better than you ever imagined. As each terrace gets more exciting and meaningful, so will the moments in my life.
