PDN – Daily Meditation 3

Meditation is the practice of getting still and quiet, and going within. Its benefits include greater peace of mind, less stress, improved health, spiritual growth, sharper mental focus, and simple relaxation. Once a practice mainly of priests, gurus, and mystics, its popularity now extends to millions of people around the world. We invite our readers to enjoy the following meditation, designed to inspire peace, joy, and love in the spirit of the participant.

1. Get still and quiet in a place where you can expect to be undisturbed. Take a deep breath and hold it two seconds, then exhale. Close your eyes and do the same again. As you breath in, feel your body taking in oxygen and everything good, healthy, positive, nurturing.

2. As you exhale, feel yourself breathing out carbon dioxide and everything negative, unhealthy, toxic, unnecessary. Do this for a couple of minutes and feel yourself becoming healthier, happier, and more relaxed.

3. Say to yourself: I do not understand anything I see. How could I understand what I see when I have judged it amiss? What I see is the projection of my own errors of thought. I do not understand what I see because it is not understandable. There is no sense in trying to understand it. But there is every reason to let it go, and make room for what can be seen and understood and loved. I can exchange what I see now for this merely by being willing to do so. Is not this a better choice than the one I made before?

4. When you feel complete with this meditation, slowly and gently open your eyes. Resume your day’s activities, but return to the thought, “I am determined to see,” as often as you wish.
