"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain…" Vivian Greene Many great locations around the world have physical reflecting pools built by humans included within their physical environments. They come in many shapes and sizes. The ultimate importance of reflecting pools is to provide a space to embrace quiet contemplation that is separate but open to interact with the world. Do you find yourself being the chaotic disturbance that challenges any possibility of quiet contemplation either within yourself or from your outside influences? To be effective, your pool must be as still as possible. As you dance in the rain, stop and look deep into the pools of water gathering on the ground. These are Nature's abundant rain puddles or reflecting pools immediately available. When you look deep into the pools, you can experience Nature's Art from the sky above you as it reflects in the pool below. You can create your own reflecting pool so you can be practicing presence and fully embracing the benefits as often as you desire. Ideally, your pool should be reflecting what you want to look at and in a space that is not crowded. Today, we are exploring the basic concepts of reflecting pools and how to design your own useful reflecting pool.
