Some of our day needs to be spent with the mind going slow, empty of thought, immersed in this present moment.

Since the beginning of time, not many humans have spent their lives with the mind empty, immersed in the present moment.
.
.
Most of us lack the time, energy and finances needed to devote our life to meditation in some secluded cave.
.
.
Alternatives: Any journey of a thousands miles begins with a small initial step, then another, the simplest building block of travel (The Breath).
.
.
We work to master one breath, then add another on to it with daily practice.
.
.
We work to build small moments with the mind empty of thought, immersed in this present moment.
.
.
Even the Daili Llama was a novice at one time, struggling to focus, to empty his mind, just like us.
.
.
Drop all goals, let life be lived in the moment, whatever is present is all that is needed.
.
.
There is no other place on earth you should be right now.
.
.
You are exactly where you should be in life at this moment.
.
.
Let go, feel gravity anchor your butt and feet to this earth, solidly, breathe, let go some more, then some more.
.
.
Scan your body as you follow your breath one cycle after another, repetitively building resilience and positive energy.
.
.
As the title of this post states: Some of our day needs to be spent with the mind going slow, empty of thought, immersed in this present moment.
.
.
We need to earn our peace of mind, our resilience and eventually our happiness.

  1. I find I can be mindful for a few seconds or minutes at a time. The mind likes to take over. BTW, I am not getting WP posts from you or the several blogs I follow. I thought everyone stopped blogging, so decided to check the feed.

  2. Technical issues are way above me

    Help

  3. Try my model. It will help you

    Work with one breath at A time at first

    Go slow

    Repetition will be easy latet

  4. I just thought I would you let you know so you are aware your followers are likely not getting email updates. There is nothing much we can do as it’s a WP glitch.

  5. Will do so. Thank you.
