Some wonder what my temple is like. I converted a sun room to be the start of our Taoist temple.
I sit here next to a small glass table with my laptop, seated on a yoga ball. I start my working day here around 6 ish to see who has called or emailed for help.
At my left foot, the chickens usually sleep or are busily catching what they may.
To my right, a once stray cat adopted us, He has earned the name Bodi Zen Rose Flower. He sleeps in a wicker basket next to me.
Our life is the temple, When living fully: life responds: to the point that chickens, cats, geckos, students, and others you will love, come, help out and join into fill space which in turn truly creates a temple: by living openly and fully to spirit.
Temple isn’t place alone, it’s life embraced: reflecting to show one how to become full and capable of accepting wholeness.
When needing to dip into spirit: find a tree, a place to sit, to hold time as a gift: to just be present.
In kindness, I practice Taoism and help others. Take a moment, be kind to yourself, connect to life by being alive. This is Taoism, and it isn’t more complicated than living your life with acceptance.
