Find the bright side...
Choose to DO GOOD TODAY with what you do actually have!
"Meditation is, at least for me, Recognizing my own ignorances," Said Karmela, one of the teachers at the Salt Lake Buddhist temple. She then continued by explaining that we are all looking at reality, right now, but through a peephole. Think of that peephole as your perspective, how you see things.
You see, there are no good days or bad days based on the circumstances that are around you. The good in a given day is found in your action within the circumstances that are presented to you.
Today I invite you to taste and digest exactly what you are in this very moment. Savor the flavor of reality. Use your senses to feel, see, taste, and listen to the world around, and inside of you. Then let go of the thoughts and things that don't serve your highest hopes.
It is a profound moment when we are able to accept what is going on around us, and in our minds. In that moment of recognizing anything in a positive light, we grow. We begin to widen our circle of influence by being proactive.
There are no good days or bad days based on circumstances. There are good choices and poor choices based on circumstances. All in all just do your best. Afterall, it is called practice. (not perfect)
1. Using your senses, identify the subtle aspects of this very moment.
2. Pay attention to the breath process or something you can label as the truly existing, presently.
3. Notice when your thoughts are of something that is not real quite yet,or from the past moments. Let go of the thought process by mentally labeling that thought as past or present. Return to your breath and repeat.
Inhale the good shit, exhale the bull shit...
