Finding Stillness – traveling

Finding Stillness is a weekly series on ways I find stillness without meditating. Follow the tag to read the other posts.


Today is a day of serious travel, going from one end of our small country to the other to visit both our moms.

My husband drives, and I sit and look at the nature that surrounds the roads we zoom across.

I just love to see all the different landscapes, the grasslands with the cattle and the newly plowed soil for the vegetables that will feed the country later in the year.

I so love to see the way the trees weave a blanket of various shades of green and the way they etch the sky. It is bliss.

So is travel by train. I usually seek out a part of the train where the word silence is written on the windows. It’s made so people can work on their commute in quiet. I love that area so much. Among all the people with their laptops and their books, I usually sit and look outside, at the nature reserve that passes by the windows, and the animals that reside.

Seeing the wild horses roam, or the deer leap through the fields, makes me feel so calm inside.

Every breath becomes a meditation in itself.
