Duration: ten minutes
Location: Home, on floor on pillow, against the wall. Alone.
Today was quick. I liked this meditation. I thought about my friend Ian, Perry’s Autobody Shop appointment I told my baby I would set up when I talked to her yesterday. I thought, “I want to get on this right away so it can be over and done with.” It was just very matter of fact. Things on my mind that needed to get done right away.
I did have a realization during my meditation and that was when I take the time to be quiet with my mind, I start to remember all of the little things that happened either yesterday, this morning, a week ago, or even months ago. My memory gets clouded with a lot of things that I put in it through my readings, watching TV, listening to co-workers, my girlfriend, signs on the side of the road, and exposure to various things throughout the day. It’s not that I forget things, it’s that my mind gets clouded. And it’s by meditating I help clear my mind of the debris floating around in it to get to the essence of what needs to be done that day. The essence of the direction I need to go with regard to the core of my being. It’s hard to do that when debris is clouding the mind.
