Up Close: Beeing Present

This week has been full of packing and loading as I lend a helping hand to my daughter as she moves to a new house. Boxes in trucks and trailers toppling with yard and garage items. I could easily feel overwhelmed with what needs to move next.

Yet in a moment of pause between lift – and – move, I noticed a little bee sitting on the trailer just looking a me. I had get closer to make sure of what I saw. Yes, he was resting on the rail just “chillin” and I seemed to him, a “busy bee“! With pollen still clinging to his busy little legs, this hard worker knew the value of restful contemplation.

“Slow down”, my mind said to me “bee in the moment.”

“Life is available only in the present moment” Thich Nhat Hanh

So bee there!

I turned again to thank my small spiritual guru. Alas, he had already flown off to teach another person a sweet drop of wisdom.
