Meditation Poem Series: #82

It’s been pretty stressful at work, but because of good meaningful work. I am grateful for each moment. Grateful for my meditation practice that I can bring into my work life, my family life…my life.

I broke my usual 10w poem format by one word. 🙂

Meditation Poem #82
I breathe
so I can be

I am
because I breathe

Meditation Poem Series: #78

I am still meditating, but I just haven’t been very disciplined about updating my blog. I apologize to the readers. I commit to writing every day for the next 12 days, so I can fulfill my commitment of 90 poems based on 90 days of meditation.

Meditation Poem #78
change is inevitable
breathe through it
the only solid ground

Meditation Poem Series: #77

I am definitely running out of steam, but grateful for the practice of sitting. I sat today in the morning. I feel like I am coming out of a minor depressive period. Grateful I am more aware than I used to be, and caring for myself with more patience and love. I’ve also been practicing metta when I drive, starting with loving-kindess for myself and the other drivers around me. 🙂

Meditation Poem #77
deep compassions rises
out of my heart
love for all beings

Meditation Poem Series: #76

I didn’t get to write this yesterday, but I did 20 minutes of guided meditation in a group setting. I appreciate guided meditation, but I find that it’s less distracting for me to have complete silence. But as anyone whose ever tried to sit, it’s never totally silent. Even the quietest places have some form of sound…not even mentioning the metaphorical noise of one’s mind.

Meditation Poem #76
silence is golden
inner silence
comes for those that wait
