We often think of meditation as a dedicated time we spend sitting on a cushion with a timer running. It is important to have regular formal sessions but we believe that nearly every moment is an opportunity to practice mindfulness.
A fulfilling and joyous life is made up of many small moments of awareness throughout the day. Each moment there is a door of awakening open to us if only we can remember to walk through it.
Make it a point to stop at any time, anywhere - sit down, take a deep breath, close your eyes and connect to your center. Watch your thoughts. As they come - simply say “thinking” and let them go. Feel into your heart and fill your being with gratitude for the simple gift of being alive.
Every moment is precious. Bliss is your birthright. Enjoy your practice and as always, don’t forget to smudge!
