The Magic of Winter.

Snow descends upon Earth from the Buddha realms cascading softly to surround the bustling humanity in tranquility. Methodically it falls, bringing with it the silence of a morning meditation at a mountain temple. Winter offers the jewel of reflection, which allows us a vivid and stark yet peaceful reminder of impermanence. The snow doesn't ask why it falls or why it melts -- It is at peace being snow, water or vapor. May peace be upon you regardless of the moment.

~Peace to all beings~

Snow has a way of making us slow down and be more mindful of what we are doing, especially when driving a car. It teaches us that this moment is what it is all about...not where we are going...cause where I drive if you lose focus you are in the ditch in the middle of nowhere. A practical lesson on many levels. Thanks for the post.
