I read something, somewhere today.
The article proclaimed shipments of Easter Bunnies are on the decline.
Not sure what that’s all about.
I’m surprised the media hasn’t turned it into an all out Easter Bunny Crisis.
I actually forgot Easter was this Sunday until Justin’s mom reminded me (thank you!).
After Easter there are only a handful of major holidays to buy for, dress for, and celebrate. Which means I am one step closer to getting through this year without purchases and avoiding all the temptations that may arise.
Where has the time gone?
It’s already Day 111.
Taking care of my head, heart, body & soul has sent into some fun and new adventures. With each one I realize there are more I want to try.
So, I signed up for the 21-Day Meditation Challenge.
It’s free, and hails from the Chopra Center, a.k.a. “the sweet spot of the universe” (that’s kind of a bold statement if you ask me).
The program promises:
“Daily support and guidance that will enable you to move beyond any past obstacles and experience the many gifts and benefits of meditation.”
Today Marks Day 8.
I have meditated right along, through the wonders of my computer and internet connection, with something like 100,000 other people for the past eight days.
I have yet to experience the many gifts and wonders it promises, but honestly, it is growing on me.
Today’s meditation used the “age old” neutral words SO and HUM, with the intent that you don’t associate either word with any meaning, therefore you are free to veg out and meditate fully.
Me, being a newbie, and clearly a mind racer, had a hard time not assigning meaning to each word.
With every breathe I had another thought:
SO …Doe, A Deer, A Female Deer
HUM …I wonder what Justin will make for dinner tonight?
SO …did I remember to turn the stove off?
HUM … I have to remember to take the sheets out of the washer!
SO … is this what it feels like to meditate?
HUM … I’m not sure this is working.
And SO on…
Hum …All I know is, it may not be fully working on me …yet.
So, I suppose I have 13 more days to refine my technique.
HUM …that’s more time than the Easter Bunny has!
SO …Happy Easter Weekend.
