,Imagine that the first thing in the morning you looked forward to sitting silently before beginning your day, before going on to FB or check email or the tv, or racing out the door in a hurry, or however you usually start your day.
To me there is nothing better than that time sitting in meditation before beginning anything else. It is a way of life, a way of embracing the new day, in a way that will make my day so much better.
Nothing miraculous has to happen during that time, but by making that commitment each day I have found things go smoother, I am able to handle things with greater ease, clarity and I feel so much better throughout the day!
I remember my mother getting up before everyone else. She had a incredibly busy life raising eleven kids and working. I believe that time in a "meditative state" allowed her to center herself and prepare for the day. I remember seeing her sitting there relaxed and peaceful I am sure she was not aware of meditation at that time but she knew how important that time alone in silence was and what it did for her.
Love yourself and give yourself the gift of meditation. It is a gift that keeps on giving!
