Today’s Shot 93

Sharing a Zen Moment

I am always amazed at how the world can be in such a state of unrest… and yet I step outside, and the birds are blissfully unaware, continuing the full chorus line, not worried and unhurried.

In knowing so little of the human world, they understand the deepest thing of all: the joy of simply being.

    Saw the same here. Lil’ Murph’s cage has a view of the bird feeder. It keeps him occupied, sometimes. My Mom had to be in a place that had a bird enclosure very similar to the one in the video. She loved so much to watch the happy (although caged) birdies until she could no longer. She loved & had birds. As she is gone, I see more reasons to appreciate them. I continue to love them for her. So happy you shared the lovely thought & realization of their state of minds & the video of them.

      I was standing in the hospital watching these happy souls. I know they bring cheer to countless residents and visitors. I love birds as well, and I can only imagine how much joy they brought your mother! And now, even more to you as you appreciate something your mother loved 😊☺️😊

      Thank you so much for sharing your story!

        Not only do they have pretty feathers and cute poochy bellies, you’re correct, they have happy souls. I shall not ask why you were in a hospital, but I hope all is well.

    My favorite time is in the morning….cup of coffee out in the garden watching the birds and squirrels do their thing! Brings my mind to a peaceful place for my morning prayerful meditation!! Finding that place helps all of us stay grounded!!
