Try to be mindful, and let things take their natural course. Then your mind will become still in any surroundings, like a clear forest pool. All kinds of wonderful, rare animals will come to drink at the pool, and you will clearly see the nature of all things. You will see many strange and wonderful things come and go, but you will be still.

If the summer days to come are all like today, I think I could easily fall in love with summer. We’re not officially into summer yet, but even with today’s mild temperatures, it looks and feels like summer, especially around the pond.
