Surprise! Everyone Meditates, Whether They Know It Or Not!

See my Blog (with instructions for basic mediation and some details about my advanced class) at My Get Well Guru  website:   Here’s a little sample to give you the gist, but the full article is there.

WHAT IS BASIC MEDITATION?

Meditation

I love Wikipedia for research! Here is part of their definition of meditation.

“…meditation refers to a … variety of practices … to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness …(and) to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity

ALMOST NO-ONE IS REALLY GOOD AT IT!

WHO CARES?!!

Swamiji Chinmayananda

One of my favorite teachers was Swamiji Chinmayananda(an investigative reporter turned Himalayan monk) used to say meditating is like riding a stationary bike in your home. “You know all along you’re not going anywhere. It’s the practice that counts.”

To paraphrase Shirley MacLaine, every time you stare at a candle flame, a sunset, waves of the ocean, or a fire in the hearth, you are meditating. Other people call it “zoning out.”

We all do it; we just don’t call it meditation. We can benefit more by doing it consciously and daily, even if only for a few minutes.  Got to my other website for more information:  My Get Well Guru

On the other hand, I FELT lost, when my computers constantly lost connectivity, and I was unable to accomplish all my work, such as posting my blog, etc.  I have had to change Internet Service Providers.  ‘Bye, bye, Comcast.  That’s all I will say here.

Here are the things I’ve been doing while you wondered, “Did Nancy Get Lost?”
