Kind and encouraging exchange of ideas among friends…for everyday life

12/28 Reflecting at the end of the day….

Here is an idea from Art at zendictive…. from the comments section of the previous post….I was going to add it to the previous post, but the revising tool won’t seem to allow that…and I think the ideas are so good that a separate post is good anyway…. (link to “three minutes of zen” ….and here is a link to Art’s home page site: zendictive )


And a varied presentation of the ideas….

And here is some art work by Tim Coffey, from Caffeine for the Creative Soul….he liked Art’s shower idea and drew one of his own..it’s wonderful!…“shower meditation”

And then, another in color…they’re both wonderful…thanks Tim, for giving the okay to add them here…I’ll add a link in a bit….

  4. I agree… it really doesn’t take long to reflect and start anew…and the “reward” of a nice warm shower as one does that…and the wonderful symbolism of the water washing things away to start anew…. it’s such a special idea…thank you to Art…. : ) (ps it’s very tempting to add a shower like that..with warm water…to the outside back area of our home…that would be sooooo special!)

    • I love it too…and will try it….

      I was thinking of some variations too…. images of watering seeds that might have been planted today….watering seedlings that are growing…. rinsing off dust that might have accumulated or been released by some negativity….savoring the magic/blessing of warm water from the Sierra Nevada mountains making it all the way to our home… all that imagination kind of thing… : )
