Day 2 Of My Meditation Journey πŸ™

Today’s meditation, Day 2 of the 21-Day Meditation Experience had us focusing on ‘the present’, instead of ‘being stuck’ in the past and/or future.

Day 2 – Why Do We Get Stuck?

β€œDo not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, let the mind remain in the present moment.” – Buddha

Today’s meditation shows us that the root of getting stuck is awareness leaving the present moment and attaching to the past or the future. But present awareness is never stuck or limited – it flows effortlessly in β€œthe now.” In order to release the blockages and frustration that occur when our attention attaches to the past or future, we must learn to recognize the presence of our true self in each present moment.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


This is something I do strive for, everyday. 

It’s only human to get lost in the past or to worry about a future that hasn’t even come to be yet..and goodness knows I get caught up in those thoughts just like everyone else. But, because of my practice, I am more aware of those thoughts,,and when they do creep in, I pull out all the stops to push them away and bring myself back to my present, my now. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t………which in a nutshell means, sometimes I manage to unstuck myself and sometimes I don’t!!! Some days I may be just ankle deep, others dam if I don’t need the waders I’m in so deep! 😊 either way, I try and keep myself open and aware and roll with it……..
