Meditation Practice

Just like as wee ones we practiced walking…
So we practice meditation.

Each day,
At the same time,
We find ourselves
Sitting on the cushion,
Breathing deeply,
Watching our thoughts,
Checking in with our bodies,
Going beyond the beyond…
All in awareness.

Unless, of course, we don’t!
And that, too, is practice.

The practice of returning again and again
To awareness
On and off the cushion.

I encourage you to get to your cushion
Each day..,.no negotiation…and practice.
