Meditation…love conquers all!

meditation

We Focus our mind…

one point…

Om Shanti…     Om Shanti…

We sit, un-moving…

30 minutes…

Mind struggles to maintain its hold.

We persist…

Om Shanti…     Om Shanti…

Willing to give ourselves to the unknown.

Each time we let go of a thought and come back to focus we are saying, “I choose to make this more important.  Just for now that thought, that problem, I’m setting it aside, relegating it to a lower rung on the ladder.”
Om Shanti…    Om Shanti…

The beauty of stillness calls me deeper into its mystery. ..and soon even the dictator mind is won over.   Deepest Love is born here.   There is nothing left to resist the call of Love as we dive gloriously deeper and deeper down.

Love really does conquer all.

You cannot lose.  It’s impossible.  Just the very act of sitting in meditation is a message to all of life saying, “Love is my priority.  For this 30 minutes I give myself to Love.  For this 30 minutes I am willing to live in faith, trusting my problems over to Love.”

Yes, Love conquers… Yes Love wins.

Oprah on meditation…in Fairfield…

Now there’s one more place I’m adding to my list of absolutely-must-visit places and  maybe need to put on my list of must-move-to’s.  Yikes!!  Those lists are getting long.

Obviously I’m not up on the latest news and trends because this was on OWN way back in March and I didn’t even know about it till just recently I heard about Fairfield being a meditation town and when I googled it for more info I found Oprah.  Can’t wait to actually go there and check it out.

Pinch of spice for this week is guess what???  Meditation of course.  Every day for at least 20 minutes but preferably for two twenty minute sessions practice meditation.  Sit in an upright position, back straight, feet flat on the floor, hands in an open position.  Begin with a couple of long slow deep breaths, counting slowly in to the count of five and out slowly counting five.  Then choose a mantra to focus on… it could be OM SHANTI which is Sanskrit for I am peace.  Repeat the word silently in your mind, putting all your attention on it, and whenever you find thoughts have come just come back to repeating your mantra.  Do this for half an hour.  Notice how you become more and more peaceful as thoughts fall away.  Enjoy the peace and stillness.

Check out this link on Oprah.
