I Celebrate Myself…

Heart of Compassion

Today, one my way to work, I meditated on the train. Most of the time I was totally there — concentrating within. However, it was really interesting that when I felt moved to place my hand over my heart, I became immediately aware of my surroundings and only placed my hand on my heart for a second. I was a afraid of looking “stupid.” The thing is, when I finally opened my eyes, everyone was so involved in their own reality that they wouldn’t have even cared where my hand was placed. So, although all my reactions were not ideal, I celebrate that I found the solace to meditate in the most unlikely place.

This is where being compassionate to one’s own self comes to mind –understanding that the moment didn’t have to be perfect…and being okay with the experience.

Ashe.

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~

    • Hey Aunt Pat,
      I am not sure of the actual type of meditation,but I tend to focus on the breathe mostly and then move on from there. It might be a loving kindness meditation when I place myself in a moment when I felt most happy and loved. However, due to my injuries and the mind/body connection that I am trying to connect with, I just focus within and see where it leads me… like that need to place my hand on my heart that I mentioned in this blog post.
