Last week, most of us could hardly wait to embrace the Spring Equinox and officially (anyway) bid adieu to winter. After what has felt like an endless winter season, we are understandably eager for all things warm, green and full of promise.
The other day, I was suddenly struck by how much my own meditation practice is like a daily mini-spring cleaning. As I sit in stillness, I invite in fresh air in big, deep breaths. I strive to sweep out the clutter and chaos in my mind. I take inventory of my feelings and thoughts, discarding some, contemplating others. When I’m done, I feel recharged in the way that only a good cleansing can give. No brooms, no buckets needed. Just me, my chair and my breath. Welcome, Spring.
Be Well…it’s a state of mind.
