One Moment Meditation: how to meditate in a moment

I love this You Tube one moment meditation: "How to meditate in a moment" cartoon by Martin Boroson 

Contrary to some misconceptions around the subject of meditation, you don't need a considerable block of time to derive some of the benefits and to take a break from the daily stresses of every day life.

Enjoy !!

Get real and the need for grounding, Mr. Bieber

We talk of someone who seems to be all over the place and who is unfocused as being ungrounded.  They perhaps possess a quality that we might describe as being manic.  One moment they are charming, bright and intelligent. The next moment they are angry and prone to venting.  This may also manifest as laughing and full of joy one moment and tears and sadness the next.   We may wonder where this change of personalty came from so suddenly.

Spring Cleaning the Body

We traditionally make New Year’s resolutions at the beginning of the year. Then, by February or March, many of us have fallen by the wayside. The many ways that we had planned to improve ourselves, whatever that means for each of us, is but a faded memory.  Springtime is really the time for renewal and we can take this lesson from nature. After all, that is when we do most of our planting.  With the slight improvement in the weather, we have a better opportunity for new growth.
