Be the moment
I do at least one meditation a day, usually first thing in the morning when all is quiet. I invite Jesus and Holy Spirit in as I begin. Sometimes it is a very silent meditation and sometimes I am asking questions and waiting for answers. The last week or so I have been asking for guidance in staying in the moment, for focus. Not a whole lot has come up other than to keep on the path. Yesterday was amazing, same request, but this time mid way into the meditation, I heard, "try being the moment". All of my senses came alive and my eyes popped open, and it was all I thought about off and on all day. People much smarter than I have tried to explain the shift in perception that happens in meditation and I have drawn the conclusion that it is an experience that teaches, never an experience that can be taught. I have to share though, to go into a meditation declaring that you are the moment is a sojourn to heaven.
Yesterday I was gathering some images and papers for some journal pages and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this background paper from "Secret Place" kit by em-ka designs at Scrapbook Graphics. It was an image that just said it all. So I played a little with it and added the sentiment and printed it out so that I could place it on my table where I do my meditations. So this is my share with you today, I hope each and every one has a grand weekend filled with peace and productivity. Hugs
