When I learned meditation years ago one of the things we practiced was that of being an observer. It is interesting this week session required us to be the observer, no opinions please. The first two days I was totally aware each time I attempted to give an opinion. It was not easy but I recognize the words about to spill out of my mouth and I very easily pull myself back. The challenge arose when I allowed my body to become so exhausted that I could not complete the required reading which created severe repercussions. I was giving opinions and could not stop myself. Maybe I had forgotten the mantra I coined last year. Never let the body become so exhausted that you cannot complete your daily rituals. Life showed up as I was now out of alignment with my mind therefore the body followed. Guess I could say now this stuff works or I would not have noticed the difference that quickly. Well it did not take me long to get back on track to see the noticeable difference as this week comes to a close. My new mantra is stated in Mandino Scroll 1 “good habits are the key to all success”. Things I needed to get affirmative answers on all worked out. Stay on track if you fall off, get up, dust yourself off and get right back in this great game of life. When one allows a day or two without the evening reading lots of unwanted situations arise.
Stay on track.
