Missing your regular meditation
This is an ongoing series running through May to compliment the twice weekly meditation sessions that I will be hosting on YouTube (the videos have now been moved to my Vimeo page). If you have any questions, please contact me.
I suggested a couple of weeks ago to look for opportunities in your daily life to meditate. Don’t just limit yourself to your regular session. Build the momentum, build on your practice, look for those opportunities. There is no need to be formal about it. No one even need know that you are meditating while you stand in line to pay for your groceries.
But what about those times when even doing your regular, scheduled practice is a challenge? Work or family commitments interrupt you and pull you elsewhere. Travel, perhaps not such an issue right now, requires an early start or a long day. Life is just such that finding time for regular practice is not possible.
This is another time where the advice that I gave a couple of weeks ago comes into play. Now looking for those opportunities to practice take on an added importance if the priority is to keep the momentum of your meditation going.
Then there are those days where you just don’t get to do much if anything in the way of meditation. If and when those days surface, do not be hard on yourself. If it is still a priority in your life, when the dust settles on life’s commitments the time(s) will reveal themselves. All that is needed is the commitment and perhaps the support of an ally in your practice.
