|“There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.”|

Dedicating time to practice and study on a daily basis comes fairly easy for me. When you do what you love, you make time. Lately I've been reading on meditation- reading, but not really practicing. Mindful meditation does not come easily - at least not in big chunks. But, what I'm finding is that I've have the misperception that something must take a lot of your time to be worthwhile... quantity over quality... when in fact- I can just start small- 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there... and progress (or choose not to!) over time (weeks or months or never!). Who says it's not meditation if it only lasts a few minutes? To have a beginners mind-- wide open to new concepts and ways of doing things over an experts mind-- wise, but also with the predetermined mind-set of how things should or could be done. I'm working on the former. And, when I miss a day or a week or more, the very next moment is the right moment to begin anew.
