"Meditate"

"Meditate"

Needing some peace today....not sure what that's all about, but I can feel some inner agitation and slightly faster breathing.  I have to sit and breathe more slowly and deeply, try to calm my body and my mind, be present in this very moment.

Pema Chodron, an American Buddhist teacher, says to "drop the storyline"....to pull back and reel in our crazy, spinning, wild thoughts that run away in a million different directions, taking us with them.  And nothing has even happened yet!

Breathe deeply....slow down....focus....center....All is well, at this moment, at this time....All is well.
