Over the past year I have worked to develop a regular meditation practice. Over time, usually about three years, meditation can actually change the way your brain works for the better. This journey does take time and dedication, but it can be well worth it. Even in the short term I find myself using breath and meditation postures to calm myself when I become tense or upset about something. Having something to fall back on in these situations really does improve how I react to the challenges life has to offer.
Ultimately it’s all about balance and harmony. The latest issue of the Edge Life magazine is now online, and I have an article posted called “Focal Point Meditation” which talks about one of my favorite meditation techniques. I already paged through the printed copy, but my article never made it to the news stands, it’s just online. I was a little bit dissappointed, as the email I received didn’t state that it would be for the online magazine only. Well, you live and you learn. Having it online means I get to share it with all of you though, and I’m very happy about that!
I usually just meditate at night, but today I think I will take a little time to focus on the present moment, and say a prayer of thanksgiving for being able to share what I’ve learned over the past year. My journey is just beginning.
