La Douceur



~ La douceur


is the French word to describe


not only 


sweet to the taste or a mild temperature




a sense of gentleness and contentment.


Don't you agree that the world


needs more of that right now?


I was given a chance to participate


in a virtual meditation group from France.


The leader invited us to sit or lay down


close our eyes, forget everything




enter into a state of "la douceur." 


How often does anyone take time out of the day


to just be 


gentle, sweet, kind, mild and most of all


content with oneself?




Enter into a moment of sweetness




the only person who will 


never leave you:




And of course, The Divine


who loves you more 


than you can ever know


but can begin to know 


when you ask.


We all can make this world a much better place.

Beautiful suggestion. One must do this often. Beautiful music.

The meditation group sounds wonderful, Anita. With all the chaos in the world, it's not that often that we take time out of the day to just be gentle, sweet, kind, and mild, do we? We're so busy taking care of things, and we pass up so many things along the way. I did, however, have a special sighting the other day - I saw 7 deer in the woods! Oh, it made my day. Thank you for this lovely post, Anita. And that photo is just exquisite. : )

I love that you were invited to do this. It really is a wonderful thing and I love the name, too. We do need to take stock every day of the one who is with us, day in and day out forever, past, present and future. This is really beautiful -- and the music perfection.
