A Japanese Meditation Garden
One thought at a time
Pruning is a form of meditation for Diane, whose garden has given her countless hours of serenity. "We can only have one thought at a time," she says. "So if we imagine we're among the mountains, enjoying them, we can't think about some problem that has been swirling around in our heads, causing a headache. Most things are beyond our control. When we try to control things we can't, that's when we really start suffering. In the garden, we can let go and change our attitude."
