Over the Holidays I volunteered to take part in an online meditation practice in return for feedback about my experience . I am now in my second week and have stayed, amazingly, pretty faithful to the practice. Before I sound too pious, I have to admit that the beginning meditations are short, some being less than ten minutes. That being said, meditation is a practice I would really like to incorporate into my lifestyle on a permanent basis.
It reinforces my belief that what we focus on increases. The only deep breaths I take seem to be the moment she instructs us to breathe normally. Further, anything from my “to-do” list that pops into my mind during the practice seems like an emergency. “I have to call Sears!” takes on extraordinary significance at that moment and it becomes a huge temptation not to abandon the practice and bolt for the phone.
