“Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have been I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.”~ Thích Nhất Hạnh, The Miracle of Mindfulness
Today I wanted to share with you a guided meditation that will help you pay more attention to, and see clearer whatever is happening in your life. It will not eliminate life’s pressures, but it can help you with the way you respond to them in a calmer manner. Practicing mindfulness will allow you to be fully present in your life and work, and improve the quality of your life.
Before you begin, remember to first, find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for the next 10 minutes. Second, find a comfortable position to sit – it can be in a chair, crossed legged or on your knees, or lay down and when you’re ready, press play. Once the meditation session is over, you can share your experience with all of us by commenting below.
