I’ve mentioned before that I have been trying to add meditation to my daily routine. I haven’t spoken about it much. Last time I was working on meditation, I did the recommended 40 days, then I stopped. I didn’t get back to it for quite a while. I’m not sure why, that’s just what happened.
When I started again, I decided to log when I did it and figure the number of days I have been doing it. As of today, it is 106 days without a lapse. I’m pretty proud of myself. I’m not sure I’m always doing it correctly, but, hey as long as I’m doing it this consistently, I must be doing something right.
I have an interesting photo as the desktop photo on my computer.
I love this and I have it on the screen as I’m meditating. No other lights on. It’s usually still dark out. I do have a candle burning.
With my Buddha that Ele gave me for Christmas and my mala beads which I made. I’m still amazed that I just decided to make them and I did!
It seems that regardless what kind of day I expect to have or if it’s one of those nights that I wake up in the middle and can’t go back to sleep, I feel better after I’ve meditated. I’m still working on getting the breathing right, but as I say it’s a work in progress. In fact that’s what I hear so often when I read about meditation. Just doing it is the important thing. Even if I never get it “right” I’m still getting great benefits from it.
I’ll be going away next week and I hope to be able to continue with this. I still wake up before everyone else so there’s no reason I won’t be able to. It is such a calming and positive way to start the day.
