PDN – Daily Meditation 9

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 see nothing as it is now. If I see nothing as it is now, it can truly be said that I see nothing. I can see only what is now. The choice is not whether to see the past or the present; the choice is merely whether to see or not. What I have chosen to see has cost me vision. Now I would choose again, that I may see.

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 see nothing as it is now,” as often as you wish.
