Meditation month: Day 28

by 201monthsblog

Today was my last day of this exercise, although I will continue to meditate and not blog about it (unless something significant happens).

It was another one of those days of nearly falling asleep many times, although it makes more sense today, because I didn’t have a full night’s sleep last night.

One thing I didn’t do this month was write (or “journal”) before meditating. I’ve done this before and it’s really useful. I was going to do it at some point for this exercise, but it didn’t happen. I’m reminded of it, because it is mentioned in this video by someone who is not me.

It’s very nicely shot and has some useful references to explore further…

How do I feel after a month of doing this? Profoundly relaxed. Happier about the practice of meditation. Less “holy” about it—so, if my mind wants to go somewhere useful, I will let it and see what I can learn about myself.

One of the greatest teachers our species has ever seen, Jiddu Krishnamurti, often spoke harshly of meditation. It depends, I suppose, on why you are doing it. If it’s to find enlightenment, it might work but it would take a looooong time. (If you are ready to be enlightened, there are far quicker ways talked about by Gangaji, Mooji, Rupert Spira and others.)

But if you are looking for a way to help navigate life and see you safely through the storms we all face, I agree with what I’ve been telling people for years: If you don’t have a meditation practice already, start one today.

Love and light to you and I’ll blog again when I have something to say.
