10 Min. Heart Softening Meditation

Finally when I got technology to cooperate, my kitten knocked over the cat bowl at about min. three;) Hopefully you’ll be in such meditative bliss you won’t notice. Heart softening: a great meditative practice, a great life practice. Enjoy! I leave you with this: How often are you getting to the cushion? Do these guided meditations help? PS … Never... Read More

Looking for Treasure

I write this post after attempting to record a heart softening meditation, frustratingly, to no avail. Technology wanted to eff with me all night and perhaps teach me to soften my heart to going to bed instead. I saved this Upworthy post for you because it made me smile.

I was teaching my nephew how to bodyboard this week. And by teach I mean tow him into the waves. It took very little time for him to grasp just how peaceful it was beyond the break.

There is no better example of constant change than sitting on the beach all day. In the morning, it’s calm and glassy. Low tide. No wind. Only scattered people. By 11 AM, the wind picks up. Surf gets choppy. Current rolls in. Families plot their ground. The tide comes in; the beach gets swallowed. Pools form. Winds shift. Waves crash.... Read More
