Helpful Hint …..

Try doing this after a hectic day at the office:

Go outside and sit on the grass in your yard.  Get comfortable.  Close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths.  Then open your eyes,  and drink in all the beauty that surrounds you.  If for some reason you do not have a nice grassy spot to plunk yourself down on ……. sit on the deck or anywhere outside (preferably somewhere quiet) and CLOSE YOUR EYES.  Imagine you are sitting by a lake watching a family of ducks swimming by.  Ah, the baby ducks are so cute. Maybe the sun is coming up or just going down …… see how pretty the sky is with all those shades of orange and pink. Use your imagination, and just SEE a wondrous place – maybe a waterfall or a mountaintop.  Stay in this position relaxing for as long as you can or wish.

Just remember to take a few minutes each day to be quiet.  If you are new to meditation it is good to start with just being quiet.  I know from experience it is difficult to just be, and not to think.  It does take time and practice to quieten your mind.

Meditation is good for the body, soul and mind.  Once you have mastered “not thinking” you can begin to reflect on life.  Keep your thoughts positive.  Always remember your mind is powerful, and truly what you think and how you think is every much as important as what you feed your body.  For some reason our minds tend to think random “negative” thoughts on a regular basis.  It takes time and patience to keep those thoughts at bay. Truly your thoughts do become things.

Enjoy life.  Have yourself a wonderful day.
