Find Time to Nourish Yourself with a Summer Meditation

Finding time to look, listen, and touch the moments of our lives can be an elusive goal.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. The problem is, we often get so caught up in our lists and tasks and goals, and we forget that there is a world of depth and texture inside that is incalculably enriching … and ALWAYS accessible.

So, here’s the powerful (and magical) thing about time, as summed up by the writer James Carroll:

We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things [but] there are times when we stop. When we sit still, we lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or its memory. Listen, and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.

Nourish Yourself with Stillness

While it may take some practice, the reality is that any time you choose to be still and focus inward, things open up.  It might be a memory, a long-ago feeling or moment, or a heart connection that warms you.

Whatever comes to you is part of you.  It reveals something about your inner terrain … the rich worlds that you harbor.

No time like summertime…

So summertime, with its soft breezes and slower rhythms, offers a wonderful opportunity to start making these small journeys inward.

And I encourage you to dip into the silence and see what you discover.  What images bubble up from inside?  How does it change your energy?

This is a really wonderful way of coming to know and nourish yourself more deeply.  So take the first step today … and you’ll see. (And the more you do it, the easier and more enjoyable it gets.)
