“We teach what we most need to learn.” – Richard Bach, “Illusions”
Each relationship brings gifts and lessons of many kinds. When I was eighteen, I had one that brought me the gift in a book and from it, one sentence that has stayed with me…haunted me…and reminded me over the years that we are all teachers. Always keeping this in mind, I realize that what I most need to learn is to sit still and find the time to meditate in my life. So, today I am beginning a journey that I am calling “Meditation Monday.” Find a moment…anywhere quiet…and stop life for 5 minutes today. All the meditation books suggest 20 minutes…but we are easing into this. So, give yourself that gift…to get quiet and calm. Oprah talks about this gift…and how when you open yourself up to the quiet, the world becomes better. Today, begin the journey with me and take the 300 seconds to fill your soul with up with wonderful and amazing energy. Ease into your week and into meditation Monday. It’s a reminder to be good to yourself…because you matter. 300 seconds…give that to yourself.
