Meditation

The cluttered irony and welcomed solace of Meditation…

“Okay…. Time to meditate”….

“here we go”…

“Breathe in positive energy   ….breathe out ego, stress, fear and anxiety”….. Stillness… “I can hear my heartbeat”… hmmm, I notice a slight pain in my ankle… a bird singing outside… “Breathe in and out…. Heightened awareness…. Yes!”

Breathe in and out….

“Don’t you hate it when you put money in a vending machine and the money just falls through the mechanism getting spit out on the other side? It is like it does not want your money… and yet here you are breaking your healthy snack rule and going for the Twix – after all it is the candy with the cookie crunch… oh wait, or is that Kit Kat…? This machine won’t take my money…! Could it be karma? Maybe the Universe is stepping in; telling me that I do not need this high fructose corn sugar slut-fest snack… Should have gone for the Teddy Graham’s – man, they need better snacks here at work…             …ah shit, my mind is wandering; back to the meditation”…

“Okay here we go… deep breathe…. In… and out…. Ahhhh, yep that feels right… In with positive energy out with unhealthy snacks… breathe”……..Breathe….

Breathe in and out….

“God I love the show Seinfeld…. Remember the “Summer of George” episode? LOL, they were all funny… kind of dated, but still hilarious today… chuckle…Kramerica… chuckle..    …ooops… back to the meditation”….

“Breathe in…. Breathe out…. My toe itches… should I itch it and break my position? Breathe in… Breathe out…. Did I turn off the oven after making dinner? When is trash day? Ah man, its tomorrow, I need to drag those cans out tonight – but here it is snowing and windy outside in late April…Brrrr… Why do I live in Chicagoland?”

“Back to my mantra… Breathe in positive energy… breathe out negative energy… stillness, energy and wellness bubbling from within… A smile for no reason… bliss…    …my inner voice speaks… “Don’t sweat the small stuff”…. Centered… Self-actualized… “Write a blog about the funny thoughts that arise during meditation”…. Breathe in… Breathe out….

Breathe in and out….

Yep, another successful meditation…meditation is any experience within the moment – no matter how cluttered and disheveled…Some are better than others… Each session different from the next… You are… and meditation is…  Can’t wait to do it again tomorrow….
