In the car, wheels spin under and Joe drives. I use the noise cancelling headphones to block the sound of the music playing on the car stereo and the whine of the dog from the back seat. It's half blocked out, but half penetrates. It's okay. I concentrate on the feel of the road underneath and I can feel it. Somehow this is amazing that I can concentrate on the stillness and the movement simultaneously. I suppose this is not unusual. Every meditation occurs on a spinning surface. The earth rotates and I look for stillness. A lovely synchronous contradiction.
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.
