This month I’m taking a meditation class with the local Lifelong Learning Institute. It’s all part of my renewal process for meeting the changes that come with Spring and the Easter message of re-birth. I’ve come to cherish the symbolism and life-teaching moments of each Season.
The practice of being more mindful and letting things flow is becoming easier now that I’m taking the time out of my day to sit quietly and remove myself from the concerns and distractions of the day. (Pulling the Plug on Cable sure has helped me get rid of the noise and chatter of all that’s going on in our country and world lately 😉 )
I found this video on How to Train Your Monkey Mind to be very helpful. The Buddhist monk reminds me of our meditation instructor with his gift of calming humor.
Note: This is an Easter Reblog from last year. I have to admit I haven’t always stayed true to my good intentions. I get distracted and fail to make time for meditation. During this Easter Week I plan to take that 1/2 hour of meditation in the morning and use it to begin my day.
