Sometimes you find an area in the garden that, although you pass by every single day and it doesn’t look anything special to you – suddenly you realize how much beauty there is everywhere!

I love what Dr. Tae Yun Kim has to say about this:

“One way to develop your awareness is to practice using it to appreciate the beauty around you.  Appreciation and gratitude are ways of acknowledging that something is present and real.  When you acknowledge and appreciate beauty, you are making it real in your world.  And making beauty real in your world is another way of taking charge of your life.  Because you see beauty everywhere, let this perception set you free from being a victim of self-imposed ugliness, gloom, and depression.” (The Silent Master, page 154.)

Sometimes, it’s only in your attitude as to what you will see.

In looking down to the ground, I found this little gem in Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s garden.

And in looking up, I saw this beautiful picture:

So, wherever you look, open your eyes and your heart, and see the beauty that God has created for us!
