Today there was a Pine Siskin in one of the bird baths.

On a whim I slowly walked over to it to see how close I could get.

I talked to it as I approached it welcoming it to the garden.

When I saw it was unafraid of me I slowly held my hand out and slid it right underneath it. Very easily shifting it from the edge of the bird bath into my palm.

It sat in my hand calmly for about 15 seconds and then flew off.

There was no fear in me and no fear that I sensed in it.

What I felt was utter acceptance that this was where we are.

We share this space together.

My meditation is simple. It doesn't require any complex practices. It is signing. It is dancing. It is sitting silently. ~Osho
