I awoke this morning thinking about meditation. What it is, what it means to practice it, what it means to do it, and how someone who thinks he or she “should” meditate would begin.
Begin now. This morning.
What is meditation? What does it mean to you? How do you practice it?
For me, it is the practice of clearing my mind, slowing my breath, and paying attention to ….. what exactly? To the breath? To thoughts that appear, vie for my attention, and must be let go (of). 5 minutes? Is that enough? 10 min.? An hour.....
I was envisioning a little booklet about meditation for the un- what? Uninitiated? Does meditation require initiation? Or Meditation for the Uninformed. Does meditation require information? Or for the novice? Does that sound too religious? For the…. Person who desires to learn to meditate. But I am not a teacher of meditation…so writing such a piece would not help anyone.
These were my first thoughts. Now I need to stop writing and meditate.
