This is a dose of stream of consciousness writing based on an experience I just had that I feel is worth sharing. Enjoy…
I feel the world swirling around me. Opportunities all around.
I breathe through it and meditate while feeling in the center, the eye of the storm.
It takes meditation because my natural instinct is to reach out and grab one of the ideas and hold onto it – to study it, to spend time thinking about it and conjecturing.
This process alone can make me tired.
Sometimes I just need to give myself a break.
So I meditate at the center and let them swirl around me.
After 30 deep breaths focused on releasing all thoughts and not grabbing any of the ones in the swirl I am ready with an energy that comes from my core. It is a place from which I can make decisions with great clarity.
I have a clear understanding of an action I need to take for an event I’ve been planning. It actually comes from a feeling, not from logic. The decision seems to be made from my gut instead of my brain. Interesting I think. I don’t debate it, I pull up my email, craft the message and send it out.
Being in touch in this way (the feeling way) has allowed a significant decision to be made in just a few minutes. Much faster than “thinking” it through.
Powerful stuff, this meditation. Powerful stuff.
Please pass it on…
