The practice of meditation does not belong to Einstein, to Socrates, or even to the Buddha.
A meditation practice is what connects you to the Earth, to the Universe, and centers your being in relationship to the infinite folds of this multi-dimensional Continuum. Meditation will not only help you cherish the little things, but the mindful practice will make you revel in an understanding that these so-called little things are EVERYTHING.
From the sound of birds chirping in the tree tops - to the sight of a sunset washing through vein-like traces of fog in a breathing, evening sky - all the way down to the steady stream of clean water rushing from the faucet, out into your glass or bath - are all little things that show us every waking moment is a chance to be grateful.
Meditation gives the Self a safe place to surrender to all that is unknown in the inner and outer worlds. This beautiful vulnerability melts your heart like a kiss.
Release all that pertains to past or future from your mind and body - cast it out into the winds so you have space within to connect deeply to the present.
Each time you find peace of mind, you heal the soul of suffering.
