In conversation with others on this notion of meditation, I hear comments like, “It doesn’t work for me,” “I can’t sit quietly,” “I’m too busy,” or even, “I have been researching how to do it properly but I find it hard to get into….” We can become so intent on doing things RIGHT, sometimes, that we limit ourselves to the point of full stop before we get started.
There are books that describe its virtues, cd’s with soft music, You Tube video’s at our fingertips, even classes offered by those, exceptional in their ability to lead others in glorious guided meditations. What a gift to find that teacher who resonates with us in this way. How blessed are we?
But what if we haven’t found the way into regular practice yet? What can we do? How do we get started?
This gentle guidance from Spirit on meditation begins with a loving little nudge in the ribs to all, reminding us not to take things quite so seriously, in the pursuit of ‘how to.’ The word ‘purity’, referring to that part of ourselves that wants so desperately to get things, ‘right’!
It’s a delicate subject
Let it flow…
I can always count on those
Who trust the Source
To come up with ridiculous ways
To embarrass themselves
It’s the oddest thing
But we try so hard
To impress ourselves to do the right thing
We forget how simple breathing can be
That’s as much complexity as it takes…
It comes in many forms
Pick what works for you
And be sure to do it often
It’s a matter of dedicated service to your core light
Let it shine
In a way that makes your heart sing
A peace filled song
Wash your clothes
Do a gig
What will it be for you?
It’s about feeding your soul!
Would you like to know what I do?
YES, dear Spirit, I would!
I sing to the heavens
I open my heart
Lift up my voice
And let the words flow like river water
It’s a beautiful feeling to share that way….
No one hears it but me
It’s fun that way
Like a special gift of giving and receiving
