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: #81

I sat this evening with my weekly meditation group. We did 20 minutes of guided meditation lead by one of the members. I sat on the floor using my jacket as a cushion to elevate my hips off the floor. I noticed how tired and lethargic I felt. After meditation was over, I went to the gym and worked out for an hour or so. I feel less lethargic, and nice treating myself to Ramen with veggies and hard boiled egg added by your truly.

Meditation Poem #81
each moment a blessing
when received with gratitude
no expectations

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
