This weekend was great! I went to meditation practice yesterday (Sunday) with a friend who’s been going for the past few months. I’ve always wanted to go, but my skepticism of organized spiritual/religious groups that aren’t necessarily “main stream” held me back. Well, meditation was amazing! There was no religious undertone to the practice, but instead it was a time to focus on the moment and get in touch with my body and spirit through breathing and movements that were intended to clear the mind of thoughts. I know I was meant to sweat it out a bit before practicing formally, which was perfect because it allowed me to read into and find an understanding of awareness on my own. Now, I have found a place and people who are on the same journey that I’ve found myself. Things are happening in my life without me trying to push things along. My practice is paying off and showing results, things take time.
Have you honestly tried to stop trying so hard? Stop getting consumed by the society in which we exist and instead enjoy the moment you have because in a blink of an eye that moment will pass you by. Doing this is hard at first and takes continuous practice to incorporate into your everyday life, but it pays off…trust me.
