Today I meditated for only fifteen minutes when I was interrupted by a phone call I had been waiting for. That was a shame since I was really having a hard time settling down and felt like I was finally getting my thoughts to drop when the telephone rang. I have ignored a ringing phone several times before, but since I needed to take the call, I jumped up and answered the phone. It was a rather complicated business type of call, one that required my complete attention and used lots of brain cells. I was surprised I wasn't foggier when speaking. I don't know why I thought I would have a hard time talking and wouldn't really remember the call later. Meditation does not leave me feeling as if I'd just had a couple of glasses of wine, but there is something about it akin to that happy, floaty feeling that does accompany a nice glass of white burgundy.

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.

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.
