Being in the Process

May 17, 2010 § Leave a comment

I had recently completed 1000 days of two 31-minute meditations. What was really cool about embarking on this sort of commitment is that I couldn’t focus on the finish line; it’s just too far away. I took it one day at a time. There is so much joy and freedom in letting go of the need to get from point A to point B in such a hurry. I knew about the benefits of doing the two particular meditations, but what I did not know is that I would also receive this incredible gift of cultivating the ability to enjoy the process. The present moment. Yesterday afternoon, I slipped into a funk. I intentionally curled up into a ball under the covers and allowed myself to feel what I felt for exactly 10 minutes. I reminded myself to breathe in, breathe out, exhaling out the funk. When my timer beeped, I looked around at all of my blessings and smiled a smile of gratitude. Then I said, “what’s next?” and I moved on.
