Do you have a special lake or body of water?

Eve from Eve Rudkin Mindfulness

Bringing a special a lake or a body of water to mind can be a helpful metaphor of the mind and a path to reducing stress.

Why? A lake is exposed to external weather forces which cause surface choppiness. At the same time, it is also contained by the land, and in the deep water the surface turbulence is felt only as gentle undulations.

Likewise, we have the capacity to observe the storms in our minds and the tumultuous external world from a position of stillness where peace can be found – that is what the practice of mindfulness is about. Maybe you can bring to mind a lake or a body of water that can offer you this? What is your special place? Orakei Basin has a special place in my heart.
