Every day, I meditate for twenty minutes. I never set a timer, but I always know when my twenty minutes are up. If I start to meditate at 4:32 pm, as I did today, my eyes pop open at 4:52 pm. I have an internal alarm clock and I bet you do too. Have you ever woken up one minute before your alarm rings in the morning? How did you know? It's obvious and yet not obvious at all: I am connected to time. How remarkable that there is something so intuitive and reliable within me.
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.
