I’ve been feeling the need for more stillness in my life, to go deeper, in less of a rush, with more purpose. I’ve been meditating each night just before I go to bed using the Meditation Podcast series. And while I love several of their podcasts, it hasn’t feel like I am meditating the “right” way for what I need now. I want a meditation practice with no distractions, no voice interrupting me from my meditation.  So today, after reading another great post by Steve Pavlina, I was inspired to to meditate for 6 minutes in my office.

Normally meditating is difficult for me as my mind wonders incessantly. Today, I focused my practice on just being present and being one with Source/Presence.  Immediately I felt this core of love and wonder in the center of my being and it was indescribably beautiful. And then I thought, “This is wonderful. What a great feeling”.  Of course, through thinking and trying to describe how I was feeling, I lost the feeling.  Over the course of the next 5 minutes, I focused on just being, without describing or thinking about what I was going through.  It was the easiest 5 minutes of meditation I’ve done since….ever.

It was so magical, I decided to go for another 6 minutes after the original 6 minutes were up. It took me a while to get back to that place but once I did, it was another wonderful long moment of mediation.  I came out of it much more centered, much more loving, and looking forward to another session this evening.
