I’m sitting in the garden, just listening to the birds, the coolness of a summer evening as the sun sets, a gentle breeze, a flapping of a bird’s wings in the tree.
Sounds and smells of nature, a beautiful sky, with ever changing colours as the sun continues to fade behind the horizon.
This background of the real moment, now, is always there. It’s we just don’t notice it, our endless repetitive mind-streams of thought drown it out.
If we stop and listen, allowing some our senses to enjoy this moment, then we become conscious and at peace.
This is freely available now, it’s just we have to choose to become it and enjoy it.
