Time-Traveling Meditation

 

In some ways, meditation is a lot like time traveling.

Return to Equilibrium

meditating returns us to equilibrium

Meditation allows one to return to a mental, emotional and even physical state of rhythmic equilibrium. However, each day that state is different in every way partially because it can never be the same thing twice, but also because it is a part of us that is constantly fluctuating.

Vulnerable Reconnection

At every breath we are most vulnerable because every breath invites all things into you. While this may seem overwhelming or unpleasant to some, it is also important to note at every breath is when we are at our strongest, for in every breath we are processing and transmuting that information through our bodies and it is in every breath that we are reconnected to all things in this world.

Fueled by Little Things

As cliched as it sounds, it’s the little things in life that can sometimes fill our heart and soul with purpose and warmth. Sometimes people (myself included) can get so caught up on the big goals and major shifts happening and that we want to happen, that we forget or ignore the little moments throughout each day that can inspire and fuel us.

Remember Our Connection

All of our connections to all things is fleeting; people like friends and family, ideas like love or depression, places like art galleries or coal mines, other living entities like grass or water, it’s all fleeting. But while it is all fleeting, it is important to remember we are connected to these things through every breath and heartbeat.

The Power of Words

 

Meditating on my words.

Meditating on my words.

In the past I have used my words carelessly, and as a result it has hurt some people. I can understand how certain things said can have a momentous and megalithic reaction in some, even though it was never my intention to cause such large reactions. Our words are valuable, for they are the air we breath vibrating through us into the consciousnesses of others. And while I realize and understand I am NOT responsible for the actions and reactions of others in how they will interpret & perceive what I say, part of me feels it necessary to take responsibility for the carelessness in which I did speak.

This is part of my humanity.

To be clear, his isn’t meant to be a call for political correctness or censorship of thought and words, for I value the freedom of self-expression and speech quite highly. However, this is a call to be mindful of the words we say and the context in which we are using them.
