Nowadays more and more people try meditation practice to become more aware and peaceful. However, meditation practice can be different. Have you ever tried to meditate in the temple of nature?
There is nothing more relaxing, calming and beautiful than the beauty of nature. That is the reason why many monasteries and meditation centers are in the territory of forests, jungles and mountains. The beauty of nature is able to discover the human potential and awake human's soul.
If you will try meditation outside, you will notice the presence of nature in your life. By watching the stability of oaks swinging in a storm, the patience of an ant as it carries its food slowly to his spot in the ground, or the beautiful songs of nightingales flying around, you will learn how to find a balance.
How can you meditate in the temple of nature?
If you don’t have the opportunity to meditate in the forest or mountains, you may try to meditate in parks and city gardens. In order to become the part of nature, you should focus your attention on the birds and the smell of the grass, among the hustle and bustle of the city.

You shouldn't worry about extraneous noise. Once you start your meditation practice, the noise of the city will slowly disappear. Meditation in parks and gardens may help you feel yourself as the part of the city and reduce stress.
