I love starting my day off with a sitting meditation. That period of stillness allows me to connect to my heart, my breath, and my soul.
I’ll often inject another sit in the afternoon if I’ve become a bit too tense or wound up.
As I’ve been doing this regularly for about five years now, it makes me wonder:
Where would I be if I didn’t engage in this practice regularly?
I still, occasionally, lose my temper or get frustrated, for example. I’m not Buddha.
But the overall improvement in my level of awareness has been phenomenal.
There is no going back.
The ability to enjoy being still and quiet is too addicting.
