Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.
Number 16: Expansive
For a long time, I didn’t meditate … it felt tedious … but research on meditation is way too positive to ignore, so I committed to practice consistently, and WOW did it paid off. Now when I meditate, my mind and heart expand and a light in me comes on and I feel happy … like I am on the road headed back home to the place where I am loved, after having been gone for a long time. Today as I closed my eyes to meditate I worried that I wouldn’t make it to the light this time but a voice inside said, “That’s just your old nonsense talking; come along now, this couldn’t be easier” … and sure enough it was.
