The strongest impact I eek out from a story rewrite is when I change the point of view. I have one story told from second person point of view and it was a revelation for me. The point was how strongly I feel the story narrator's presence in my writing, in my reading, and in my life. As a little girl, I'd stay awake at night talking to myself, telling myself stories, and acting out conversations I'd wished I'd had. So, now I am consciously (yes, it is conscious although it's during meditation) trying to find that narrator once again, an old friend and someone I loved very much as a child. Where did that person go? Can she return to me? If she returns, what will she have to tell me? I invite her back and promise to sit with her for twenty minutes every day.
Welcome to the Slow Breath Soft Heart blog. I hope you enjoy my thoughts on meditation, and it inspires you to try to start or enhance your own practice. I'm always interested in writing content about meditation in the legal field for your publication, speaking on the topic, or teaching an immersive session. Please see more information about my programs, or get in touch.
Meditation is not about ambition. It is about intention. It is not about doing it right or being the best or even about becoming enlightened. It is about sitting in stillness for twenty minutes every day. That’s all. Now, see what happens.
