Just finished the first session of the Meditation class, with this being the first time I’ve taught it. Spirit, as always, was guiding, while my mind – it’s getting better about not doing this – kept pointing out what wasn’t done or complete.
It was perfect and wonderful! Two students, both of whom want to build meditation into their daily lives – which is part of my reason for teaching it! And to explore various meditation techniques, to see what fits. So we’re all on the same page.
Early in the day, I was picking books off my bookshelves, until I began to feel that every single book had a connection to meditation in one way or another. Poetry books, essays on and by women and men mystics, books of affirmations and meditations, spiritual biographies, books on Western and Eastern traditions, every religion and its mystic strand was represented. And one where I love the book – but especially the title “The Relevance of Bliss”.
That’s what we’re looking for in meditation, don’t you think? Not quitting is a great way to get there!
