I did my meditation outdoors today. With cool grass under my feet and a gentle warm breeze under the morning sun, tuning into my own inner self was a gift.
Todays meditation was a guided meditation by Tara Brach, an invitation to relax and awaken the body with an openness to receive life as it is.
Cultivating mindful awareness and compassionately viewing our experience is a way to step out of auto pilot. Although meditations can be done at any time of the day, a morning meditation can set the tone for the day. Words and phrases from a guided meditation can serve as reminders to bring awareness to our thoughts and actions. From todays meditation, the phrase “Dance of Aliveness” resonated from me. To be aware and at ease in this world. To be rooted in the present moment and be flexible in each moment.
