Really good start to my meditation today. I settled down quickly, found the light at the center of my forehead and focused on pulling it down toward my heart. All good. All very good. Then, I felt an insect graze my hair. Bee or fly, I wondered. Do I take the chance? I did. Back to the mantra and back inward I went. More buzzing. I flicked my head; I swatted. The pest was persistent. It landed on my hair and when I opened my eyes I saw it on my pant leg. I can meditate with the distraction of sound, a telephone ring or a lawnmower, but not when the sound is attached to an insect.
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.

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.
