Serene Sunday - sometimes a few moments of quiet meditation can bring serenity.
Meditation is commonly thought of as continued or extended thought or contemplation. In most of our lives we could do with more thinking, more continued or extended thought. The problem is that we often don't have the time or chose not to find the time to do the thinking that needs to be done.
I propose we take time each day just for thinking. I am not proposing turning your life in to a monk like existence. What I am proposing is that you spend five minutes at the start of each day, before you even get out of bed in thought. Start the day just thinking, not doing anything, just thinking about something, anything. the subject of the thoughts is up to you. Think about your family, your work, your dream car, anything. Just spend the start of your day in quiet meditation, deep thought about something.
By the way, don't stop thinking after you get out of bed. Check out the graphic on the right for thoughts on thinking before you speak throughout the day. Meditation, deep thought is a good way to start the day and to live your life.
So, the question for you this Serene Sunday is, how can you use meditation to bring serenity into your life?
