Why is patience one of the hardest human states to cultivate? Why is it so easy to disrupt?
Tonight's meditation was woven around a thought I've been contemplating since my Yoga Nidra training two weeks ago--this idea of the universe being one, but all of us a part of that one and a collective at the same time.
My main thought is this...
The most important gift this holiday season is the gift of pause for yourself.
Meditation is not a competition. There is no enlightenment finish line.
What do snails think when crossing a busy street or a stretch of asphalt that lasts forever?
Do you think the monarch has moments where he wishes to return to the comfortable solitude of his chrysalis?
Use the breath to keep the heat of the moment from becoming a spark that begins an all-consuming wildfire.
How is it that when we return from walking a distance we are not the same person as when we began?
Gratitude has become my companion and lover in the way no mortal can or could For no matter the weather or way love is but a breath away and can be taken by no one ... Image courtesy S. Hermann & F. Richter via Pixabay
