Easy Meditation

Buddhism is great but we don’t need to be Buddhists to practice meditation. Just slowing down our minds is good enough meditation. DumbLittleMan tells us how to practice easy meditation in the article Meditation Techniques for the Busy or Impatient:

In order to make this work, it will be helpful to:
Lower your expectations of meditation.
Often the reason we are impatient about meditation is we want instant gratification. Replace that expectation with a desire to experience a “slow melt” of your stress.
Be open to non-traditional meditation (easy meditation).
Meditation doesn’t have to be done in a seated position. Any activity in which you can slow down your mind, become more inwardly focused and more rooted in the present moment will pass the test for meditation.
Commit to slow down your mind for 10 minutes each day.
You can obviously do this for longer if you want, but just take your time in building this habit by starting with 10 minutes per day. Dumblittleman

  1. Happy New Year!!

    We have before us a new year.

    What a blessing, and what an opportunity.

    I know that we can have a great and prosperous year, regardless of where we are starting at this time. Even if your job changed or your rerlationships need work, or you have distressing family problems, the new year is a time for hope with a firm prospect of things getting better.

    Let’s put the difficulties behind us, even failed terrorist attacks and perennial bad economic news that seems to float around in big black clouds.

    With all its problems, difficulties, bad people and rough situations, it is still a wonderful world with limitless opportunities!

    See how you can find your opportunities in your own genius mind!

    Choose not to be limited by your past and your circumstances.

    Access you own internal power.
